Book Description

13 Oct 2011

Sara Douglass has won legions of fans around the world for her epic tales of sorcery, forbidden love, and heart-pounding action. Now, with the The Devil’s Diadem, she reveals her biggest adventure yet.

In a world gone mad, is the Devil’s word the only one you can trust?

A foolish monk stole the devil′s favourite diadem and the devil wants it back.

It is mid-twelfth century Europe and Maeb Langtofte joins an aristocratic household to attend Adelie, the wife of the Earl of Pengraic. The earl is a powerful Lord of the Marches, the dark Welsh borderlands.

Then a plague that has swept Europe overtakes England and as life descends into chaos and civil disorder, Maeb is about to discover that the horrors she survived at Pengraic Castle were but a prelude to the terrifying maelstrom which now envelops her and all of her countryfolk.

Hell has come to desecrate England, and the only thing that can possibly foil its plans are the wits of one lonely, isolated and terrified woman.

About the Author

Sara Douglass was born in Penola, South Australia, and spent her early working life as a nurse. Rapidly growing tired of starched veils, mitred corners and irascible anaesthetists, she worked her way through three degrees at the University of Adelaide, culminating in a PhD in early modern English history. Sara Douglass currently teaches medieval history of La Trobe University, Bendigo and escapes academia through her writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a finale 31 Dec 2011
By Jayeaw
Format:Paperback
A story that captivates from the first page to the last. The nobility of a twelfth century England go about their ordinary lives with just the merest hint that they might not be all they seem to be. Death and disaster strike (the writer is Sara Douglass after all) and our heroes rise to the challenges before them, raising tiny suspicions that they just might be getting a little little bit of supernatural help. For page after page of superb story telling the characters develop but with little hint of who is good and who is bad, who can be trusted and who cannot be. Then just as you think you are getting close to the end of this book with nothing really being explained the reader is treated to the most magnificent ending ever. A truly clever and unexpected ending and the right ending. Sara Douglass will be sadly missed - there is no one that can write fantasy as she has done.
