Résumé

An epic thriller of the Crusaders' valiant last stand in the Holy Land. After two hundred years of Christian domination, it is the turn of the Saracen to seek revenge.

Among the garrison are allies - the adventurer de Flor, Theobald, the young Hospitaller, the court dwarf Amethyst, the camel master Selim and the orphan boy and spy Benedict. But in their midst prowl the feared Assassins and a rabble army of Italians. Deserted by the pope and the princes of Europe, Acre faces annihilation. But can something be salvaged from perdition?
