Amis and Amiloun (date: c. ) A saintly ‘bro-mance’ about two knights who pledge faith to each other, a loyalty tested when one is caught in a lie after being seduced by the king’s daughter and the other must break his word to save his friend’s life—a decision followed by heavenly punishment and a miracle of mercy. Amis and Amiloun isn’t quite the “knight off on adventures in the wild” story that many readers associate with medieval romances, but it certainly has a lot going on, and will appeal to readers who like plots that are routinely shaken up. There’s a hint of court intrigue, a romance with a beautiful woman, a trial by combat, a saint-like.
