1453. For more than a thousand years the mighty walls of Constantinople have protected this furthest outpost of Christianity. But now endless ranks of Turkish warriors cover the plains before them, the most fearsome force the world has ever seen. No European army will help: Constantinople is on its own. And treachery is in the air.
‘This is an ambitious book, written on an ambitious scale, offering a fascinating picture of momentous events.’ – Daily Mail
THE SALADIN TRILOGY
Praise for The Saladin Trilogy:
‘This exciting and interesting novel is the first installment of a planned trilogy following the life and fortunes of the great Salah ad-Din (Saladin) who became famous as a warrior and Sultan of Egypt and Syria… The most telling question is whether I will want to read the next part, and the truth is I most certainly will. It is an interesting look at a fascinating historical figure, and time and place are conveyed powerfully throughout.’–Ann Northfield, HNS
‘This is book two of the Saladin Trilogy. Saladin’s rise to power is well woven into the story, as well as the rivalry between the various factions in the Kingdom of Jerusalem. Well researched, the characters are all strong and believable, while the action sequences are exciting and believable. Although I had not read the first in the series, this did not detract from my enjoyment of this book. Fans of this genre will enjoy this excellent novel.’ – Mike Ashworth, HNS
‘There are times when you come across a book that piques your interest, especially when its subject is one you are very interested in learning about. You know there will be some artistic licence, but you want the story to as factual as it possibly can and also entertain you. Jack Hight has done all of that with a truly majestic account of the early life of Saladin, the Muslim leader who nearly united the whole of Outremer and nemesis of Richard the Lionheart.’ – Sir Read-A-Lot
