About the Book

By Fire, by Water

Luis de Santángel, chancellor to the court and longtime
friend of the lusty King Ferdinand, has had enough of the Spanish
Inquisition. Santángel is from a family of conversos,
and his Jewish heritage makes him a target of the brutal Inquisitor
Tomás de Torquemada. When a dear friend’s demise brings
the violence close to home, Santángel takes retribution into
his own hands, simultaneously growing ever closer to a beautiful
Jewish silversmith, Judith Migdal.
