Delacorte (Bantam Dell)
with events that both forecast and mirror the conflicts of today…Ball’s
wealth of realistic detail and depth of characterization bring to vivid
life this exciting 16th-century historical adventure. I
couldn’t put it down, and thought about it for days later."
Jean M. Auel
"An epic adventure with
action, suspense, and romance. David Ball brings alive sultan's palaces,
the world of corsairs and knights and the realities of 16th-century
medicine and combat."
Phillip M. Margolin,
author of Wild Justice
