For ten years he fought the battles of the Reconquista in order to reclaim his lost inheritance, but when a routine inspection escalates into a slaughter, he must serve the Spanish Inquisition or face execution. His mission is to find and eliminate an extremist plotting to assassinate Queen Isabella. With few leads and little evidence, the only person willing to aid him is the daughter of a rabbi, the brilliant but impulsive Rachel Harel. Despite being from opposite ends of society, Alvaro and Rachel fall in love. However, in an era of intolerance the punishment for such a romance is to be burned at the stake. Hounding their every step is the depraved Friar Severa and his enforcer Baltasar—both men obsessed with destroying Alvaro. The conspiracy against the queen deepens, but time is running out, for in the heart of the conquered lands an injustice is committed that will ravage the lives of thousands. In a nation scarred by warfare and prejudice, Alvaro and Rachel must expose a secret about the monarchy before it can be used to destroy all of Spain.
