Item Description...
A nun and a monk defy death and dishonor at her family's Welsh fortress...
In the winter of 1271, Death stalks the corridors of Wynethorpe Castle on the Welsh border. When the Grim Reaper touches the beloved grandson of the castle lord, Baron Adam sends for his daughter, Prioress Eleanor of Tyndal, and her sub-infirmarian, Sister Anne, to save the child with prayers and healing talents. Escorting them to the remote fortress is Brother Thomas, an unwilling monk fighting his private demons.
Death may be denied once in his quest for souls but never twice. Soon after the trio arrives, an important guest is murdered. The prioress's brother, bloody dagger in hand, stands over the corpse. All others may believe in his guilt, but Eleanor is convinced her brother is innocent.
Outside her priory, in a world of armed men, Eleanor may have little authority, but she is determined to untangle the Gordian knot of thwarted passions and old resentments even if it means defying her father, a man with whom she longs to make peace. As passions rise with the winter wind and time runs short, Eleanor, Anne and Thomas struggle to find the real killer.

Wonderful Medieval Mystery!  Dec 9, 2007
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful story by Priscilla Royal! TYRANT OF THE MIND contains characters that I can care about, interesting dialog and story twists. Most importantly for me, the author straddles the two time periods (theirs and ours) in a balanced way that is neither anachronistic nor outdated.

Highly recommended. I'm working my way through this entire series.
Mystery and Medieval mayhem  Oct 30, 2006
Tyrant of the Mind is a first-rate historical mystery. The characters are fascinating and full of life. Royal has a marvelous talent for incorporating medieval history and customs into the story line. The mystery is incredibly complex. It kept me guessing until the final chapters. I'm a big fan of Ellis Peters and Margaret Frazer's medieval mysteries and I'm so glad that I discovered such a wonderful new series.
A New Voice in my Favorite Genre  Jan 31, 2005
Priscilla Royal's 'Prioress Eleanor of Tyndal' stories (this is the second) are especially competent in every respect. Her characters are carefully drawn and three dimensional, her story line is logical and intriguing, her grasp of medieval detail is extremely good...she is simply a first rate story teller. It happens that medieval mysteries are my favorites, and this author is right up there with Alys Clare, Margaret Frazer, Bernard Knight, and Kate Sedley. I'll look forward to her next entry in the 'Prioress Eleanor' tales.
fascinating medieval mystery   Nov 1, 2004
Eleanor of Wynethorpe, the prioress of Tyndale in East Anglia, is summoned home because her young nephew Richard is very ill. Accompanying her is the renowned healer Sister Anne and Thomas a monk who was forced into the church by a fanatical bishop. Visiting the castle are Sir Geoffrey, his wife Isabella and his son Henry and his daughter Julianna who are negotiating the marriage of Lord Adam's son and Eleanor's brother Robert to Sir Gregory's daughter Julianna .

While Anne takes care of Richard, Isabella flirts with Robert and Sir Geoffrey fights with his son and herHenry and Robert engage in fisticuffs. Shortly thereafter, Henry is dead from knife wounds and Robert is found standing over the body, his hands dripping with blood. Surprisingly, it is Sir Geoffrey who argues that Robert is innocent and his father who has him locked in a guarded room waiting for the sheriff to come. Eleanor and Brother Thomas work together to find the real killer because they believe Robert is innocent.

TYRANT OF THE MIND is a fascinating medieval mystery that takes place six months after the ill fated rebellion of Simon de Montefort. Readers geta tantalizing glimpse of the inner workings of a medieval castle. The heroine is the voice of reason and quite logically shows her father why her brother couldn't possibly be guilty; in an age when women had no rights, Eleanor stands up for her beliefs. Brother Thomas, who also plays a role in finding out who the killer is, has adjusted to the circumstance that forced him to become a priest. Priscilla Royal will appeal to fans of medieval mysteries as her style is reminiscent of renowned author Sharon Key Perman.
