Here at last is a long-hinted-at chapter in the undead
existence of the immortal Count Saint-Germain: the story of
Ranegonda of Saxony, one of the three great loves of
937 A.D. The Saxon fortress of
Leosan is under the almost unheard-of rule of a woman. The
Gerefa of the fortress has become a monk, leaving his
sister, Ranegonda, to rule in his name as best she can--and
to deal with his embittered, headstrong wife as well. Into
this tense and dire situation comes Saint-Germain.
Shipwrecked on the Baltic shore, near the true death, he is
found by Ranegonda, whom he will come to love for the gift
of blood she gives him, and for her own indomitable spirit.
