if you are reading this book looking for an ending or conclusion to the saga then you will be disappointed but it is a novel take on the Grail quest / Cathars story-lines that have been around in recent years and it gives a real feel for a pointless little war. It well written and focuses mainly on Ocryhoe the street urchin from Rome in book three and develops her in to a great character.

Actually this is probably the best book in the saga.

Not much to say. An OK book if read as a standalone. A very disappointing read as the end of a series. So many loose ends. The ending seemed to be rushed. Was there a looming deadline? I felt a little disappointed as characters introduced previously had nowhere to go and very little to say. So what was the point? Side quests maybe? Well, I won't be rushing out to buy any more after this. Great shame.

I enjoy the book. It takes in some of the informations of the siege of Monsegur and explains how it was broken. The other side of the story with the cup I think is a little weak. A good read for a holiday.

Forces of light and darkness converge in Cathar country in search of the Grail. Our usual heroes - Raphael, Percival and Occyhroe almost come a cropper when the pope, Sinibaldo Fieschi himself, descends on Montsegur

reading the complete Mongoliad series is a thing you must do.
Several stories all interlinked but not one for those who like "happy" endings, the twists kinks and happenings keep you riveted.

Alright read for the final book in the series. A bit dragged at the end.

All five books in the series have been, in my view, good value for money with a story that is well told and holds together over the whole series of books that make up the series.

Best book of a consistently good series of novels,the one author managing a thrilling page turner that I read in four hours. Haven't noticed this author before in the list of credits, but she writes well,plots clearly and has developed the characters brilliantly.
