An epic saga of love and war, Shadow of the
Swords tells the story of the Crusades -- from the Muslim
Saladin, a Muslim
sultan, finds himself pitted against King Richard the Lionheart as
Islam and Christianity clash against each other, launching a conflict
that still echoes today.
In the midst of a brutal and unforgiving war, Saladin finds forbidden
love in the arms of Miriam, a beautiful Jewish girl with a tragic past.
But when King Richard captures Miriam, the two most powerful men on
Earth must face each other in a personal battle that will determine the
future of the woman they both love -- and of all civilization.
Richly imagined, deftly plotted, and highly entertaining, Shadow of
the Swords is a remarkable story that will stay with readers long
after the final page has been turned.
