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. Also available in hardback. The second in the Perfect Fire trilogy, White Heat is available now.
Blue Flame - Book 1 in the Perfect Fire trilogy by Katie Grant
The Occitanian knights battle for their lives against Richard the Lionheart. They are guarding the Blue Flame under which all Occitanians must unite to resist invasion. But the knights cannot survive and so it falls to Parsifal, young son of the knight Bernard, to travel on alone and find the true keeper of the Flame.
“There is much to enjoy and admire in this book… the novel is marvellous and the book ends on a high of misunderstandings and seemingly impossible entanglements… Grant certainly knows how to tell a story… And she has woven such a gripping plot that I shall certainly be lining up to read book two.” Mary Hoffman (author of The Falconer’s Knot) The Guardian
“With this gorgeously and intricately braided novel, the first in the Perfect Fire trilogy, KM Grant provides a top-notch tale of star0crossed lovers, court intrigue, twisted religious hatreds and the mystical power of landscape” James Lovegrove, Financial Times
“…a beautiful story on a grand scale” Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading
