    As I was reading this I greatly disliked it at some times and was really into it at other times It was hard to get into but overall I liked it than not Mosse's writing made me cringe at times So much unnecessary description Who did her editing They should be ashamed And the passiveness of characters telling each other the story while the reader listens in bugged me I would have preferred just to have the historical storyline But

    This pulled at me and repulsed me simultaneously As a medievalist and amateur historian I was addicted to learning how Mosse laid out this Grail fantasy She treats the Cathar subjects well clearly having spent at least a f

    This was a bed time read; the time when I will read things I otherwise may not In this case historical fiction in the guise of yet another yawn grail uest All these medieval storytellers Chretien de Troyes; yes I do mean you have a lot to answer for This is split between early 13th century France at the time of the Cathars and France in 2005; the main protagonists being Alais in 1205 and Alice in 2005 Of course there isn't a link of any s
