The Accidental Heretics Box-set presents Books 1, 2, and 3 plus a novella: The Mad Woman of La Catalane
This box-set includes more than 1300 pages of medieval adventure together with maps, a glossary of Occitan and historical terms, plus a preview of Song of Valeros, Book 4 in the series.
The Accidental Heretics series explores a crucial time early in the 13th century, when the culture of southern Europe altered its course. In 1210, Simon de Montfort spread terror throughout the Languedoc to flush Cathar heretics from their lairs, shouting over the voices of the troubadours.
Bone-mend and Salt, Book 1, launches this adventure of conspiracy and revenge. Three adventurers seek a mutual enemy, while a holocaust is being kindled in the cities and villages of the Languedoc.
Trebuchets in the Garden, Book 2, follows the adventurers as they are snared into the Languedoc crusade, while Simon de Montfort prepares to ignite the next heretics’ pyre.
Crux Lunata, Book 3, follows warriors from the Accidental Heretics world down medieval alleys and across Andalusian rooftops, when French knights paused from the crusade against Cathars to help Castile and Aragon invade Moorish Andalusia.
The Madwoman of La Catalane, a novella, journeys into the Pyrenees hills, where so-called heretics hide from their persecutors–and answers a mystery posed in Crux Lunata.
