Arena of Assassins
'Alhambra' is a powerful saga of medieval chivalry and teachery, of lust and love, of believers and infidels. Set in the contested lands of 14th century Spain, where four Christian kings are vying for supreme power, 'Alhambra' tells the interlinked stories of the young Prince Ahmed, heir to the throne of the Moorish kingdom of Granada, Princess Beatrice, the beautiful young daughter of Pedro the Cruel, and Prince Juan, her brother. All are victims of the powerful men who scheme against each other for control of Spain - yet all survive and, in the end, triumph over the disasters of fate . . . and the curse of Yusuf ibn Nagralla.
The harsh beauty of the Spanish landscape and the exotic splendor of the great palaces and fortifications provide the backdrop to this engrossing fictional creation of a world of myth and legend, of a world which might have been.
