Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The year is 1134. In an isolated German monastery, an aging monk begins the history of a war thirty-one years before. But a strange encounter with the Otherworld enchants his quill, and he can no longer write the cautionary Christian tale his superiors expect. He must write what he truly remembers.

"A novel grand in narrative, grand in ideas and, especially, grand in ambition." (Edmonton Journal)

"A powerful tale of ambition, delusion, obsession, and betrayal, focused upon four memorable characters...The work of a major talent: intelligently conceived, beautifully written, powerfully absorbing, deeply moving." (Victoria Strauss, SF Site)

About the Author

Marie Jakober grew up in a log cabin in northern Alberta, Canada. Her home schooling, by correspondence, and a flair for storytelling brought her international recognition at age thirteen with the publication of her poem The Fairy Queen. Ms. Jakober graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa, and has toured, lectured and served on numerous panels, including the 1988 international panel of History and Mythology in the Modern World. The Black Chalice is her fifth novel.
