A knight from across the sea, a beleaguered kingdom, a spirit of fire with a deadly secret - Judith Tarr's beloved novel of grand romance and high magic in the age of the Crusades appears for the first time in digital form. Join Prince Aidan, son of a mortal king and an immortal enchantress, and the deathless Assassin Morgiana, in a saga of war and truce, betrayal and honor, hate and love.
Fans of Judith Tarr's work will be satiated by her usual blend of fantasy and historical drama, taking a half-immortal, supernatural prince on a quest to avenge his slain murdered nephew in the setting of the crusades. The time period and the Middle Eastern backdrop are described vividly as the adventure takes off. James Patrick Cronin gives the audiobook a dramatic performance setting a brooding, engaging pace and hitting the emotive notes as they occur.

Atmospheric and spellbinding - a wonderful author
Some of my favourite books don't translate too well to audio format, but it's perfect for this book - really builds up the pictures in the mind.
The Dagger and the Cross - the sequel
He reads well and does different characters well, both male and female. It made me look at the book from a different viewpoint - I have owned the book for many years.
Magic and mystery - fantasy of an alternate history
I have bought many books I already own as audio books as I can listen while driving, gardening or doing any other chores
