  • This was an absolutely outstanding novel. The characters were fascinating, and their story compelling and well written. I can’t recommend it strongly enough.
  • Like the writing style, characters are so vivid and well rounded. Book flows well, exciting page after page.
  • I found this title an excellent and engaging read from an oft-overlooked perspective, the Crusades from the point of view of the Christians ruling outside an Islamic controlled Jerusalem. Well researched and innovative subject matter.
