William de Mandeville is a troubled young Templar knight in the turbulent world of the twelfth century. The horrors of war have unbalanced his mind and his aristocratic family is a veritable nest of vipers. Only by taking on a dangerous quest for the most sacred relic in Christendom, can William truly discover himself. But great dangers lie in his way.
Discover a world ripped apart in a bloody crusade between Muslim Saracens and Christian crusaders. Neither side is truly united and treachery lies round every corner. William must fight with his sword and his mind to see off many enemies.
The True Cross has been stolen by cruel thieves and found its way into Saracen hands. But William discovers its whereabouts – behind the great walls of the city of Al-Usbunna. Only by conquering this mighty Islamic stronghold can the sacred object be saved by our hero. In his journey and struggle, William is joined by two very different friends – an easterner called Pathros with dark secrets and an English boy, Nicholas, who the Templar knights saves from being tortured. A thrilling battle climax sees the city stand fast against everything the crusaders can hurl against it – until William and the Templars break through and claim Al-Usbunna for Christ.
This is a story steeped in the history of the period – so transport yourself back to a world that is both different and similar to our own.
