Onyx Owl

 

Teresa uses her wits more than weapons to battle her foe.  Caught in the act of stealing, she joins an old retired Spanish soldier to rescue victims sentenced by the Inquisition to die.  Her partner is the Onyx Owl wanted by both the church and the Spanish authorities. 

 

Using a web of deceit, she befriends the foe.  She and the Onyx Owl save many unfortunate prisoners from a death by fire.  When their enemy, Estaban, discovers what they are doing, Teresa and the Onyx Owl flee to the New World.  But Estaban is not far behind
