The Khalifa, Al-Hisham, plays a pivotal if passive role in the novel. Instead, this is principally the story of the falconer Ahmad, his brothers Qasim and Rafiq, and their lives in Córdoba, capital of Al-Andalus. At the time, Córdoba is not a good place to be in. Repeatedly the city is overrun and sacked, as first one, then the other faction gains the upper hand.
I thoroughly enjoyed this read, immersing myself in Ms Fallon’s descriptive writing. The first few chapters are a bit slow but once Ms Fallon settles into her story she drags me along on an educational and exciting journey through a world I knew little about prior to reading her books. I am soon entirely submerged in the long-ago Córdoba, and it is therefore with some surprise I close the book to discover I am not, in fact, in the hot and dusty Al-Andalus—testament to Ms Fallon’s skill as a writer.
"Joan Fallon has written a fascinating story set in 11th Century Spain."
"I so enjoyed this book. Interesting characters, time period and location. I like Ms.Fallon’s rhythm and writing style; I really felt I was there feeling the anxiety of their troubles, and trying to escape the city."

Very good novel. I liked this one best. Gives you a solid impressionisme of life under the Omayads and is also a trilling read.
