Content

Will Raimon's and Yolanda's love survive the ravages of a siege, her enforced betrothal to Raimon's enemy, and the growing divisions within their beloved Occitan?  Raimon has escaped the pyre and carried the Blue Flame, the true spirit of the Occitan, to the mountains above Castelneuf. 
There he dreams of Yolanda and gathers more people to his cause.
But his resolve begins to fail as he is besieged by the Catholic Aimery and the Cathar White Wolf.
In Paris, Yolanda, believing Raimon is dead, resists marriage to Sir Hugh, who is building a war train to topple Raimon and bring the flame and the Occitan under the rule of the French King ...In a blazing finale, as Castelneuf burns, all sides are forced to reconsider what they are willing to sacrifice for the Occitan, for power and ultimately for love.

From Booklist

Grant develops the plight of her thirteenth-century lovers in this sequel to Blue Flame (2008). 
After escaping the pyre, Raimon takes to the Occitan caves, but despite holding the mythical Blue Flame, his attempts to unify the Catholic and Cathar rebels fail as the reality of being under siege takes hold.
Grant’s writing is deeply rooted in history, and her portrayal of the time period is never dry: vivid details bring the setting to life, while a focus on the characters gives the story emotion and drama.
Though the conceit of having the land narrate is even more intrusive, this volume will not disappoint.
Grades 7-10.
