Jacquetta always has had the gift of second sight. As a child visiting her uncle, she met his prisoner, Joan of Arc, and saw her own power reflected in the young woman accused of witchcraft. They share the mystery of the tarot card of the wheel of fortune before Joan is taken to a horrific death. Jacquetta understands the danger for a woman who dares to dream. Jacquetta is married to the Duke of Bedford, English regent of France, and he introduces her to a mysterious world of learning and alchemy.

After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

I read the glowing reviews and was dumbfounded!!! I am wondering if it isn't some kind of Audible marketing scam since Audible posts reviews at its discretion. It worked on me I bought two books but could only handle two hours of listening. The story wonders aimlessly. The readers voice was irritating. For anyone to give this book any stars is beyond me. Maybe their ipod accidentally switched to a different book.
