A Marvellous Fantasy, Non-stop Action, Chivalry and Romance." That's how Hilary Wilson of BookLoons describes Gerfalcon, the first volume in the long-out-of-print Neustrian Cycle. "The Neustrian Cycle" is set in medieval France, in an alternate-universe) where witchcraft is real so are the ghosts. In it Raoul, the young heir to the barony of Marckmont (described as "a blend of elf and owl and boy") grows up to become a sensitive, intelligent young man who prefers reading and song to the so-called knightly virtues of war and slaughter. At seventeen, he takes off on his own and thus begin a series of adventures that will try and mature him. Along the way, he falls in love, survives attempted murder, saves Red Anne (Mistress of the Witches' Coven of the Singing Stones), and is forced to join a band of outlaws, where his life is one of constant danger. Only after many more thrilling incidents does he finally comes into his inheritance. The New York Times wrote that Gerfalcon is "?recited with vividness and imagination--recommended."
