Product Description

Lucifer's Harvest #9, in the Chronicles of Hugh de Singleton Series, by Mel Starr

King Charles of France has announced that he is confiscating Aquitaine, and Prince Edward has sent for knights and men at arms from England to assist him in opposing the French king. Lord Gilbert Talbot is required to provide five knights, twelve squires, and twenty archers and men at arms, and wishes his surgeon – Hugh de Singleton – to travel with the party, while Hugh’s wife Kate will oversee the castle. Among the party will be Sir Simon Trillowe, Hugh’s old nemesis and Kate’s former suitor, who had once set fire to Hugh’s house. After a brawl on the streets of Oxford Sir Simon had nearly lost an ear; Hugh had sewn it back on but it had healed crooked, and Simon blamed Hugh for the disfigurement. Finding himself in the same party, Hugh resolves not to turn his back on the knight – but it is Sir Simon who should not have turned his back.

Publisher's Description

King Charles of France has announced that he is confiscating Aquitaine, and Prince Edward has sent for knights and men-at-arms from England to assist him in opposing the French king. Lord Gilbert Talbot is required to provide five knights, twelve squires, and twenty archers and men-at-arms, and he wishes his surgeon--Hugh de Singleton--to travel with the party, leaving Hugh's wife Kate to oversee the castle in their absence.

It won't be an easy journey. Among the party will be Sir Simon Trillowe, Kate's former suitor, who had once set fire to Hugh's house. After a brawl on the streets of Oxford, Sir Simon had nearly lost an ear; Hugh had sewn it back on, but when it healed crooked, Simon blamed Hugh for the disfigurement.

Finding himself in the company of his old nemesis, Hugh resolves not to turn his back on the knight--but it is Sir Simon who should not have turned his back.

    Hugh de Singleton is summoned with his employer, Baron Gilbert, by Prince Edward to go to battle against France. Hugh is taken along not in his role as bailiff, but as a surgeon to treat battle wounds. He leaves behind his wife Kate and two young daughters not knowing if he will return or be the victim in battle, even though he isnt in the fighting ranks. Upon reporting to their first stop on the journey to Dover, England where they will then cross the English Channel into France, Hugh makes an unsettling discovery. His old enemy Sir Simon Trillowe is among the other fighting men called by Prince Edward.

    Sir Simon holds no love for Hugh and goes out of his way to let Hugh know that he still holds a major grudge. However, while waiting for the battle to begin, Sir Simons body is found face down in a poisoned well. Hugh is the first suspect as he and Simon have had a couple of run-ins at the encampment. Hugh enlists Baron Gilberts help and they both persuade Prince Edward to give Hugh time to find the real murderer. Hugh ferrets out the guilty party and a confrontation ensues.

    While the story is good, I kind of felt cheated at this abbreviated novel. In the past, his novels are usually about fifty pages longer with more time spent with Hugh, his internal musings that I find very interesting and sometimes funny, as well as his interactions with other characters. This one definitely surprised me in a negative way and that is that homosexuality or perversion, as it was referred to in the book, was included. I did like the setting of France and the details about the life of a medieval soldier. I love Hughs wit and tenacity in his search for the culprit. I look forward to reading more medieval tales of the adventures of Hugh de Singleton in the future, but now I will be a bit wary as to the contents. Book ten is titled Deeds of Darkness, but as of now there is no release date.
