Item description for Angel and Dragon (Letzenstein Chronicles) by Meriol Trevor...
Overview The adventures of Rafael le Marre and his friends continue in this third book of the Letzenstein Chronicles. Catherine Ayre and her cousin Giles come to Letzenstein in the summer of 1849. Raf is happily married and settled in Xandeln with a crowd of orphans-but Giles, at least, is not impressed with his unconventional ways. After a terrorist bombing in which the Grand Duke is thought to be killed, Julius Varenshalt tries to take political control. Catherine, and even Giles, fears for Raf's life-and indeed it has never more hung in the balance.

Reviews - What do customers think about Angel and Dragon (Letzenstein Chronicles)?
The Letzenstein saga continues Feb 15, 2007
In this volume, the third of the Letzenstein Chronicles, Catherine from the first book is back. She is visiting Letzenstein from England with her aunt, uncle, and cousin Giles Hawthorne. They become entangled in all kinds of escapades. Rafael le Marr is constantly trying to help people, while it appears to others that he is involved in revolutionary activities against the government. Catherine tries to help, and Giles, who doesn't think much of Rafael, Grand Duke Constant or Letzenstein, is giving slanted reports of their actions to his parents and Duke Julius. Duke Julius ends up seizing power, Con is abducted, murder is attempted, and Rafael faces the firing squad. In all this, Giles undergoes a serious change of heart, and of course, everything turns out all right. After all "The Rose and Crown", not "Angel and Dragon" is the last of the Letzenstein Chronicles!
