Description

After the bloody trials of Alexandria, Sir William Gold is readying for a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. He hopes, too, that the Holy City might allow his relationship with Emile, cousin of the Green Count of Savoy, to develop.

But the Roman Emperor of Constantinople has been taken hostage by an unknown enemy, and the Green Count is vital to the rescue effort. It is up to Sir William to secure his support, but he soon finds that his past, and his relationship with Emile, might have repercussions he had not foreseen....

Suddenly thrust onto the stage of international politics, Sir William finds himself tangled in a web of plots, intrigue and murder.

A rich, detailed tapestry of a tale.

Christian Cameron mixes the practice of a historian, with the character development of a graceful storyteller. The language of the characters is reflective on the context in which they find themselves, and the author does not shy from second guessing his readers "sensitivities". The men at arms and knights were professional soldiers with all their ideas, ideals, and base instincts intact. Well done.

Excellent but would have liked better continuity in narration

I enjoyed this installment just as much as the first two in the series. This one had a different narrator and if the same narrator could not have been used for the whole series, I wish more attention had been paid to using the same pronunciations of the names of the main characters as in the first two books. It was a bit jarring to have names such as Pierre, Juan, and Emilie suddenly pronounced as “Peer”, “Jew-on” and “Eh-meel”.

Marvelous!

Cameron brings history into intimate contact with the listener. His scholarship backs his story with a deep wellspring of real knowledge to which, he in turn, applies his true gift of magic - the transportation of you and me into his world to see the landscapes, to feel the passions, hatreds, and friendships, smell the exotic aromas of foreign lands and taste the dusty grit of battle mingled with blood. It come to seem as if we were one of his companions! So real are these manifestations of novel that Cameron's world becomes the preferable one to reality making on wish we never had to go home!

a real 5-star

I've rated far too many books at 5-stars. I need to either recalibrate my scale or give you, Mr. Cameron, 10 stars. fabulous narration, and the finest example of the art of words I've read in too long a time. thank you for this presentation.

I love this author

If you like historical fiction with and aren’t afraid of some graphic descriptions of martial violence. I think all of his series are the best I’ve read. Just awesome

One of the very best

I love this author and this series, but especially this reader, who is new in this book (to the series, he had read a lot before).
