The Talisman is Sir Walter Scott's tale of the Crusades, a tale of chivalry, of violence, of virtue, romance, and deceit.More
Written in 1825 by Sir Walter Scott, The Talisman is an epic throwback tale of connivers, deceivers, lovers, and heroes.
Set in the Holy Land during the bloody 103-year battle of Christians and Muslims during the Third Crusade, and narrated with steady aplomb by Jim Killavey, the listener is taken along on sprawling adventure that follows the triumphs and tribulations of the Scottish knight Sir Kenneth, as he clashes and duels with his twisted foe, Sultan Saladin.
A "historical" novel that plays liberally with "facts", The Tailisman is nevertheless a solid and spirited yarn.

Yes, and Maybe.
Slightly stilted diction, some words mispronounced. The narrator isn't really the problem.,
Most of the second half of this novel is missing. The narrative skips abruptly from Trial by Combat to the Court of Salladin. My download seems to think its complete.
