Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Having renounced the sword, Pagan and Lord Roland arrive at the Abbey of St. Martin to devote their lives to God. But no sooner are they outfitted in their novices' habits than Pagan suspects that something mysterious is going on: someone is stealing alms, and Pagan is determined to find out who. The truth may come at a price, however — one that could force Pagan to reconsider his pious role and his dedication to Roland.

Now available in paperback, the third adventure of the four-book Pagan Chronicles is a medieval thriller that leads the reader through a web of mystery and intrigue in the most unlikely of places.

Review:

"Humor? Rage? Agony? Spiritual journeys? Murder? Moral turpitude? Twists both welcome and dismaying? This decidedly unique historical saga has it all." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Review:

"Jinks again displays an amazing knack for blending utterly convincing period detail, earthy wisecracking, and profound respect for courtly and spiritual ideals." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Review:

"The historical details in this fast-moving, humorous tale are precise and fascinating, the characterizations are strong, the dialogue snappy, and the action well shaped." Horn Book

Review:

"Jinks succeeds in creating a medieval setting that feels distinctly different from the modern world in spirit as well as in period details. This quirky, witty medieval novel...stands on its own." Booklist

Review:

"Pagan is still Pagan: smart, sassy, and vulnerable. Buy this book and rejoice — there is a fourth coming." VOYA

Review:

"The story takes many twists and turns as the lively, wise-cracking, and engaging hero tries to adjust to monastic life. The unexpected resolution of the story is quite satisfying." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

Having renounced the sword, Pagan and Lord Roland arrive at the Abbey of St. Martin to devote their lives to God. But no sooner are they outfitted in their novices' habits than Pagan suspects that something mysterious is going on.

Synopsis:

About the Author

Catherine Jinks is a medieval scholar and young adult author — a background that is evident in this third of four stories about Pagan Kidrouk. Her books have garnered numerous awards, including the prestigious Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year. Pagan grew out of a university course Catherine Jinks took about the Crusades, and her fascination with the real Order of the Templar. She was also heavily influenced by British comedies like Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Catherine Jinks lives in Australia.
