Description
This third book of the Languedoc trilogy by Orange Prize co-founder Kate Mosse (following Labyrinth and Sepulchre) opens in the summer of 1942 in Nazi-occupied France. A spirited and courageous young woman named Sandrine is drawn into the Resistance in Carcassonne. Her underground network, code-named Citadel, is made up of women who risk everything to liberate their homeland, just as their ancestors had fought against Northern invaders seven centuries earlier. But smuggling refugees over the mountains and sabotaging the Germans is only part of their mission; these women must also protect an ancient secret buried in this place, which—if discovered by their ruthless enemies—could change the course of history.

"The action revolves around a group of women who make it their mission to obstruct the Nazi occupiers and smuggle refugees across the Pyrenees into Spain. This band of female Resistance fighters also has a deeper, time-honored duty to protect a potentially explosive codex secreted by a determined monk during the late fourth century. As the stories of the women and monk run parallel, a narrative intersection is inevitable, and Mosse's trademark supernatural twist unfolds—as expected—in due course. Strong female protagonists, a fascinating historical backdrop, a bittersweet romance, and the integration of mystical elements guarantee a large crossover audience for this thrilling genre-bender."—Booklist
