Between Two Fires
Yesterday I finished Between Two Fires by Christopher Buehlman for my Monthly Key Word Challenge. The key word is fire. It also qualifies for the What's in a Name Challenge: A book with fire (or equivalent) in the title.
This is the second book from this author. I am going to get his first one!! I loved this book and was totally captivated by the story. When I was thinking about what I was going to write I thought of describing it this way -it's like a Frank Peretti novel set in 1348.
This story is about a knight/thief who rescues a young girl. France is in the midst of the black plague. There is death and something else everywhere. She is on a quest and convinces Thomas to accompany her. Along the way a priest travels with them. The three main characters, Delphine, Thomas and Pier Matthieu, change a lot throughout this journey. There are supernatural things happening all the time. It's a battle of good and evil!
