Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average I was really looking forward to reading this book and right from the start it was captivating, but as it went on he seemed to have lost interest and tried to hurry the book along to finish it. His attention to detail was still great. Although I am still planning to read Mystic Rose I thought this book was far from his best book, I would rate this book as average at best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent This is a great book, almost as exciting as the Iron Lance. I would recommend this book without another thought. Lawhead is an excellent writer - he will keep you out on the edge through the whole book! I can't wait for Mystic Rose to be released.

From the Publisher

In the second book in the exciting Celtic Crusades series, Murdo and his family search for a piece of the cross of Christ.

From the Jacket

The Celtic Crusades is an epic trilogy of a Scottish noble family fighting for its existence and its faith during the age of the Crusades. The series traces five generations of knights and noblemen over a span of almost 500 hundred years, during the crucial period when military and sacred history melded. Set against a backdrop of the declining Holy Roman Empire and its ruinous wars with the Saracen East, this series is full of exciting drama. Each of the three books centers on one of three periods of Crusades history as well as one significant relic: The Iron Lance features the spear that pierced Christ''s side; The Black Rood, the cross itself; and The Mystic Rose, the grail.
The Black Rood begins with Murdo, the courageous warrior from the first novel, as a grandfather and wealthy landowner in Scotland. When his brother returns home from the Holy Land, Murdo and his family enter into an exciting search for the Black Rood, a piece of the very cross upon which Christ died.
