How do you prepare for the dawn of the Inquisition? TREBUCHETS IN THE GARDEN, Book 2 in the Accidental Heretics series, continues the adventure that began in Book 1, Bone-mend and Salt. Tomas, Isabella, and Jean-Luc are entrapped in the Languedoc crusade-as Simon de Montfort prepares to ignite the next heretics' pyre. - A mercenary kills an enemy for revenge, but his soul suffers mortal wounds. - A banished knight fights for hor in a siege city that's dying of thirst. - A lonely widow writes letters for dying rebels, while enemies condemn her for heresy. Summer 1210: Simon de Montfort spreads terror to flush heretics from their lairs, shouting over the voices of the troubadours. Pedro of Aragon cant persuade him to temper justice with mercy. The text includes maps and a glossary of Occitan and historical terms.
