This historic tale highlights the last few years of the life of a Templar Knight named Arn Magnusson. After completing his service to God he returns to his beloved homeland to begin life anew and bring peace to all. Bringing with him craftsmen and doctors from the Holy City of Jerusalem he takes us on his journey to find his beloved Cecilia, learning about a son he has never met, and creating a new society of both Christians and Muslims.
This book is the last in an epic trilogy that history lovers will not want to miss. Jan Guillou's writing is wonderful as he paints the picture of life during those times so vividly. This is one I could read again and again.
