Fantasy novel, second in a trilogy.
''UK editor and writer (1895-1968) whose Neustria Cycle - Gerfalcon (1927), JORIS OF THE ROCK (1928) and Shy Leopardess (1948) - depicts events in a land of fable, an imaginary French province in an alternate world. The basic premise, vaguely presented, is that the Merovingian Dynasty does not split apart c.750 AD; instead, Neustria survives, and at the time of the three tales (c.1400) is still thriving. Each tale follows a young man or woman through physical and moral perils into adulthood. The sequence's alternate-world displacement serves not as an opening for magic but as a freeing of the author'simagination; the Neustria Cycle is far more intense and eloquent than his more straightforward historical novels'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
