The Lions of Al-RassaneBook - 2010
Home to three very different cultures, Al-Rassan is a land of seductive beauty and violent history. Peace among the Jaddites, Asharites and Kindath is a precarious, elusive thing, made so by the ever-present shadow that divides the peoples but draws extraordinary individuals together. Ammar ibn Khairan--poet, diplomat, soldier; Rodrigo Belmonte--accomplished military leader; and Jeanne bet Ishak--brilliant physician; these three find their lives interwoven by a series of remarkable events that take Al-Rassan to the brink of war. Hauntingly evocative of medieval Spain, The Lions of Al-Rassan is an exhilarating story of love, divided loyalties, and what happens to men and women when passionate beliefs conspire to remake--or destroy--a world.
