The Lovereading4Kids comment

Set long, long ago, this is an epic historical novel empassing love, war and religion. When Richard the Lionheart attacks the Occitanians they have little hope of survival. But, for any hope in the future, they must preserve the Blue Flame. How Parisfal finds the true keeper of the Flame, the love of Yolanda and the friendship of Raimon is a beautiful story on a grand scale.

Synopsis

Blue Flame by Katie Grant

Up in the hills of Languedoc, Raoul de Bertrand tends to a small blue flame in a filigree box, a flame lit at the moment of Christ's death when the veil of the Temple was rent in two. Raoul has been hiding here since, as a boy, he inadvertently shot Richard the Lionheart with his crossbow, a crime for which his father was killed.
