Domnei

by James Branch Cabell

The sumptuous adventures of Perion, an outlaw wrongly accused of murdering a king. While taking refuge by masquerading as a prominent vicomte, Perion falls hopelessly in love with Lady Melicent, the count's sister, who in turn helps Perion escape his pursuers -- only to have his ship waylaid by thugs in the employ of the ghastly heathen warlord Demetrios. Learning of Perion's fate, Melicent makes her way to the court of Demetrios, where she offers herself in exchange for Perion's freedom.
