Thirteenth-century Bohemia is a dangerous place for a girl, especially one as odd as MOUSE, born with unnatural senses and an uncanny intellect. Some call her a witch. Some call her angel. Mouse doesn’t know what—or who—she is, but she means to find out.

When young King OTTAKAR shows up at the Abbey wounded by a traitor’s arrow, Mouse breaks Church law to save him and thwarts custom when she returns with him to Prague. Caught in the undertow of court politics, Ottakar and Mouse work to uncover the threat against him and to unravel the mystery of her past as they try to find a way where they can be together.

But the arrival of Ottakar’s father, VACLAV, and Mouse’s discovery of darker and more dangerous aspects of her unusual gifts threaten to separate them forever.

Set against the historical reign of the Golden and Iron King, BOHEMIAN GOSPEL tracks Mouse’s quest to discover her past and to define her destiny. But is she prepared for the truth she unearths and the future that awaits her?
