Prisoner of the Inquisition

Genre: Historical Fiction
Location: Fic BRE

This book has a fantastic cover- if you judge a book by its cover- then you will read this book. I bought this book for the library before I even turned a page- but then I also love history. So what is it about..
The flames begin to rise around her...
Zarita, only daughter of the town magistrate, lives a life of wealth and privilege.
Saulo, son of a beggar, witnesses his father wrongfully arrested and brutally dealt with. Hauled off to be a slave at sea, he swears vengeance on the magistrate and his family.
The cruel agents of the Inquisition arrive in Zarita's town bringing suspicion, terror and death. Then, amid the intrigues of the royal court, Zarita and Saulo meet once more, to face final acts of betrayal and revenge.
