    " This was a great book. There were real characters! unlike in Angels in Iron. This book focused less on the history and instead yielded much better characters. The characters developed throughout the novel. It is also well-written. Overall it was a great book. I would recommend it to anyone. "

    " I really liked the way Ball personalized history for us. We have traveled to both Malta and Istanbul and his recreation of those places during the 1500s was amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 6/28/2010

    " Beautiful historical fiction set around the great siege of Malta (1565). Must read for any history buffs and mildly curious, the siege is considered a turning point in the Ottoman advance on Europe. "
