Arn de Gothia has become one of the most feared warriors of the Knights Templar, fighting to liberate Palestine with the Crusaders. At the great battle for Jerusalem, Arn is saved from certain death by Saladin, his longtime enemy and trusted friend. When he is finally allowed to return to his homeland, Arn is determined to find the woman for whom he was exiled. He must discover if their love has endured the long separation and if it can sustain his new quest: to create a new people, a new society, both Christian and Muslim, fighting for peace in a savage land.

About the Author:

Swedish-born journalist Jan Guillou has won several international awards, including the Prix France Culture. He is the creator of two of the most successful series ever published in Sweden—the Hamilton series and the Crusades Trilogy. His books have been translated into more than twenty languages.

Review:

`He has a remarkable grasp of the mindset of the period and always puts the emphasis where it would be for the people involved at hat time, rather than ours. Some readers may find that disorienting, but a capacity for disturbing readers' assumptions is even more a hallmark of good historical fiction than the inclusion of the Knights Templar'Diana Gabaldon'Thrilling and inspiring, bloody and romantic; utterly of its time and utterly modern'Tom Holland'Destined to become a classic, a brilliant and dramatic recreation of the medieval world' Sharon Penman
