When a fortress is betrayed to King Stephen's forces, the defenders are passed out to the victors to be ransomed. When both King Stephen & Maud meet at a neutral site, someone is found murdered outside the church. Cadfael in search of his son must uncover who committed the act before an innocent man is hanged. But when the prime suspect is kidnapped by a man bent on vengeance, Cadfael stumbles on his son's whereabouts. Everything is suddenly complicated when Maud surrounds the castle with the avenger, the prime suspect, the son, & Cadfael in it. Will Cadfael keep everyone involved alive before a massacre occurs?

I've been putting off reading this, the last of the Brother Cadfael series, but I'm glad I finally did take the plunge. Without spoilers: Brother Cadfael finds himself having to leave his duties in order to assist in brokering a peace between Empress Maud and King Stephen. There's also some unfinished business from previous books that is being addressed, so don't read this until you've read the previous entries. Nice swan song. ( )

I've enjoyed the few Cadfael books I've read, but this one didn't do much for me. I went in expecting a mystery, but the murder and the search for Cadfael's missing son take a backseat to the politics behind the war that was devastating the country at the time. ( )

The culmination of Ellis Peter's Brother Cadfael chronicles released the year before her death at age 92. When news is brought to Shrewsbury that Olivier de Bretagne, a staunch supporter of Empress Maud, is missing after Philip FitzRobert, son of Robert of Gloucester, turns to King Stephen's side of the war, Cadfael requests permission to go seek freedom for his son even though Olivier doesn't know he is Cadfael's son. The abbot grants him 3 days to do so, but when that isn't enough, Cadfael abandons his religious orders in pursuit of his son's freedom. Nicely executed and a satisfactory conclusion to her 20 novels even though there is plenty of room for continuing the series had Ellis lived. ( )

Brother Cadfael's penance is the last of the Cadfael Chronicles. Olivier de Bretagne has been captured in the long war between the Empress Maud and King Stephen but has not been offered up for ransom as so many others have been. Brother Cadfael goes to a conference of bishops trying to end the war with Hugh Beringar and to seek word of Olivier. He breaks his vows when he does not return to Shrewsbury with Hugh. Of course there is murder and the accused is Olivier's brother-in-law. Cadfael gets involved and is at the siege of La Musarderie when all is unraveled.

There are several maps which help place the action as well as a genealogical table of Maud and Stephen. (And where was this table when it would have helped and was needed in earlier books of the series.)

Since this is the last Brother Cadfael mystery, I was disappointed that all the action takes place outside the Abbey. Does Prior Robert ever become Abbot? What about Brother Mark and his wish to become a priest? Does Brother Oswain stay at St. Giles? Will Brother Jerome stay the thorn in Brother Cadfael's side or will he mellow with the years? These and many other questions will remain forever untied. ( )

The Earl of Leicester's courier came riding over the bridge that spanned the Severn, and into the town of Shrewsbury, somewhat past noon on a day at the beginning of November, with three months' news in his saddle roll.
