Outside the official church is a small band of believers, branded as heretics by the bishop and in danger of death.

Excellent Book! Apr 22, 2002
This is an excellent Christian novel. I had a lot of trouble putting this one down. It's exciting as well as encouraging.
In the Shadow of the Cathedral Dec 6, 1999
Suspense and depth of humanity at the same time! True to real life, not just a work of fiction. A joy to read!
We're heading into another century aren't we? Feb 24, 1999
I'm really pleased that this book does such an accurate job of covering the historical aspects of the era. Ms. Schneider's personal development of her characters is carefully done and shines a lot of light into the darkness in the depths of the souls of man. Character development is definitely top-notch. Just as we are heading nervously (many today) into our Y2K so were the characters in her book. The beauty of it is that we find out what becomes of them. Perhaps it will even reveal some of yourself in the characters and that could give you something on which to build your response for this new millenium.
Excellent reading! Unpredictable and riveting . Jan 25, 1999
The author provides believable characters that draw the reader into that time period. Once I started I couldn't put it down! It was refreshing to want to discover what was coming next- it was impossible to speculate! Now I must read the next in the series.
Excellent historical look at the Dark Ages Jan 3, 1999
Well-researched historical fiction. Highly recommended for students of the Dark Ages, or of Germany at the beginning of the 10th century. Has obvious Protestant flavor, but shows many of the reasons why it was called "The Dark Ages".
