Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The year is 1188, and Jerusalem is in the hands of the Infidel. Upstanding Crusaders and their squires — like Lord Roland Roucy de Bram and Pagan Kidrouk — are returning to Europe, hoping to rally more knights to their cause. The sardonic young Pagan expects Lord Roland's family to be the picture of fortitude and good manners, but he's in for a rude awakening. Brutish and unfeeling, the de Bram clan cares nothing for the Crusades, or indeed for anything outside their neighborhood in France. Meanwhile, local unrest is brewing. Church authorities are duking it out with the de Brams over a group of "heretics" living nearby. And now Pagan and Roland, sworn to defend Christianity, are left to decide for themselves who to stand by — and whom to trust.

Review:

"Catherine Jinks's Pagan in Exile follows Pagan's Crusade, which, according to PW, 'turns medieval history into fodder for both high comedy and allegory.' Pagan and Lord Roland travel to France in this adventure and are forced to exorcise ghosts from Lord Roland's past in the form of his duplicitous family members." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"The setting is medieval, but the issues addressed have twenty-first century parallels....Jinks's writing is the tour de force of young adult prose." VOYA

Review:

"Readers will laugh and weep along with these vividly rendered wanderers." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Catherine Jinks has once again given us a book that is hard to put down, is often deeply disturbing, and that leaves one wondering what Pagan and his master will do next." Children's Literature

Review:

"Jinks dramatically evokes a historical time that was particularly dark and dirty....Along with the drama and darkness, readers will find intensity and, yes, humor." Booklist

About the Author

Catherine Jinks is a medieval scholar and author of young adult books — a background that is evident in this second 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 out of her fascination with the real Order of the Templar. Her most recent book is Evil Genius.

Peter de Sève, who created the striking jacket artwork for both Pagan's Crusade and Pagan in Exile, is a New Yorker cartoonist and the designer of animated characters for Ice Age, the 2002 Academy Award winner for Best Animated Feature Film.
