What Am I Reading for My 2010 New/Old Reading Challenge?

This one's been sitting in my TBR pile for altogether too long. It should be an "old read" by now, but instead it's my latest "new read"  for my 2010 New/Old Reading Challenge: The Prince and the Pilgrim, by Mary Stewart (of The Merlin Trilogy fame).

Back cover blurb:

Eager, burning, and young, Alexander has come of age to take vengeance on the treacherous King of Cornwall who murdered his father. He sets off toward Camelot to seek justice from King Arthur, only to be diverted by the beautiful and sensual Morgan le Fay, Arthur's sister. Using her wiles and her enchantments, Morgan persuades the young prince to attempt a theft of the Holy Grail. 
Motherless daughter of a royal duke, Alice has lived a life of lively adventure, accompanying her father on his yearly pilgrimages. Now, on her father's final visit to Jerusalem, she comes under the protection of a young prince whose brothers were murdered, a prince who is in possession of an enchanted silver cup believed to be the mysterious Holy Grail itself.
Thus the stage is set for two young seekers to meet--and find the greatest treasure of all . . .

Stop by on Tuesday, and I'll share a Tuesday Teaser with you!
