    • Synopsis
    • Penley, a young page (apprentice knight) in Jerusalem at the time of the Crusades, who is a mortal descendant of the powerful fairy goddess Mélusine, saves Princess Sybille, from an ambush of men pretending to be Muslims. She’s holding one of the magic rings from the fairy Mélusine given to her by her father Lusignan without knowing the power and relevance of it.
      Overhearing a conversation between Raymond of Tripoli and a co-conspirator thrusts him into the middle of a struggle between good and evil on the material and spiritual plane. His journey back to France and his maturing as a knight at arms plays out across exotic landscapes and takes him into a spiritual and other worldly quest that shadows the earthly one, in which he must unite the two rings inherited from his fairy guardian angel that confers extraordinary powers which enable him to save the Latin kingdom of Jerusalem and keep his immortality to go look for his lost love.
