Editorial Reviews

Review

WINNER OF THE 2015 CHAUCER AWARD
for Historical Fiction set in the Middle Ages
AWARDED "SILVER" IN THE FEATHERED QUILL LITERARY AWARDS 2016
for Spiritual/Religious Fiction.
FINALIST FOR THE M.M. BENNETT'S AWARD 2015

QUILL SAYS: This is a do-not-miss series that you will keep on your shelves in order to read again and again, with each time awakening more emotion and bringing Balian's valiant history to life.
This is a book that is biographical, yes. But the real meat and bones of this story are the emotions. Everything from war to suspense; romance to kindness; good to absolute evil - and even the presence of the well-known and well-read Templar crusaders - everything is offered by this writer in order to bring Balian's life, as well as the fight for Jerusalem, into full-blown Technicolor.

KIRKUS REVIEW
People as diverse as Scottish knights, Greek clergy, and the Fatimid Caliphate converge in peaceful and not-so-peaceful ways as the book deftly paints a time of international conflict... Regardless of readers' knowledge, the era will prove indisputably fascinating as cultures (and swords) clash...[T]he novel succeeds in exploring not only Balian himself, but also the time and place that might produce such a man. 

From the Author

Hollywood made him a blacksmith; Arab chronicles say he was "like a king."
He served a leper, but defied Richard the Lionheart.
He fought Saladin to a standstill, yet retained his respect.
Rather than dally with a princess, he married a dowager queen -- and founded a dynasty.
He was a warrior and a diplomat both: Balian d'Ibelin
