Trebizond is set in the eleventh century, when Turkish hordes from Asia are storming into the Byzantine empire, slaughtering the imperial armies. Only one man can defeat them: a nobleman and true historical figure called Theodore Gabras. Only he can save the city of Trebizond and make it into the last bastion of Byzantine power in the East. The story is seen through eyes of three main protagonists: Gabras himself, his wife, Eirene, who is cruelly betrayed and captured by the Turks and makes her own perilous escape to re-join her husband, and the greatest of the Turkish warlords, Afsin, renowned for his brutality, who is entranced by Eirene. He vows to take Trebizond and kill Gabras... Trebizond is a gripping work of historical adventure fiction which has been inspired by other historical novelists, including Robert Graves, Alfred Duggan and Rosemary Sutcliff. Author N J Holmes is most comparable to modern novelists like Ben Kane, Simon Scarrow and Harry Sidebottom.
