Description

The life of Musa, leader of the Islamic invasion and conquest of Spain in the eighth century, is recounted in this historical novel. At the same time a fascinating gallery of characters parades before the reader: Tarik, the envious lieutenant, Rodrigo, the unfortunate last King of Visigothic Spain, Egilona, his sensuous, opportunistic Queen, the gentle and faithful Zoraida, and many others. Exciting battle scenes alternate with tender scenes of love, while political intrigue ravages both Islamic and Christian courts, producing bloody acts of treachery and cruelty. Overall, a poetic transparency illuminates the mighty conflict of cross and crescent.
