This is essentially a road trip comedy about male friendship poured into the shape of an historical drama. Blondel, Richard the Lion-Heart's troubador spends most of the novel searching for the king, who has been taken prisoner by Duke Leopold. Along the way there are dragons, werewolves, giants, vampires, and unicorns - always tied to reality by the Vidal's tempered and questioning prose, which by the way, is beautiful. It culminatea in the battle for the throne between Rochard and his brother John, ending tragically and touchingly. In spite of this ending, there's a lot of verbal and slapstick comedy threaded throughout, making it a pretty light and fun read.
