The Inquisitor's Tale by Adam Gidwitz, 363 pages

On a dark night in 1242, travelers gather at a small French inn. It is the perfect night for a story, and everyone in the kingdom is consumed by the tale of three children; Jeanne, a peasant girl who has visions of the future; Williams, a young monk with supernatural strength; and Jacob, a Jewish boy who can heal any wound. Together, their powers will be tested by demons and dragons, cruel knights and cunning monks. From small villages to grand banquets halls, these unlikely friends-and their greyhound-are chased through France to a final showdown in the waves at the foot of the abbey fortress of Mont-Saint-Michel.
