    One thought on “Relics”

    1. "Relics" is a fun read with an endearing protagonist. In the mid-13th Century, Jean-Michel is a young, naive knight, who is pushed by circumstances on a quest to find a relic for his cathedral. What starts out as a simple task becomes increasing complicated and eventually takes Jean-Michel to the Holy Land and an encounter with King Louis IX of France. The story moves along well, fast paced and enthralling, and describes Medieval Europe and Christian Palestine in colorful detail. It is particula [...]

    2. Here's a clever historical novel set in medieval France. A young knight, Jean-Michel is devoted to the church, and when his local cathedral catches fire, he risks his life attempting to save the building's only holy relic. Although he doesn't succeed and the sword of St. Martin is apparently lost to the flames, Jean-Michel survives with a strange, cross-shaped mark on his sleeve. This "sign" sets him on a journey to find a replacement relic for the church that carries him throughout Europe and t [...]

    3. I love stories of castles and knights, but there is so little good stuff written about this part of our history. Desjarlais is a master of historical fiction--weaving vivid descriptions of the food, clothes, beliefs, politics and habits of the time into a story that grabs hold of your imagination and doesn't let go! For the guys, there's plenty of swordplay, action and intrigue. For the girls, there's romance and uncertainty. I never knew what a key role the collection and preservation of relics [...]

    4. I checked this book out from my local library. I was excited to read some Catholic fiction, but I was divas appointed by this book. The characters are trite, the plot is linear and predictable, and the setting is as bland as the other two. If you are looking for an archetypical medieval romance, this is the book for you.
