I enjoyed this book so much! This book is about a Christian prince(Conrad), the princess he was suppose to marry(Elaine) and the Muslim assassin(Rashid) sent to kill her. These three end up traveling to find out why Rashid was suppose to kill her. Of course nothing is ever that easy. They are sent on a separate quest to retrieve a letter.
I am obsessed with the characters and the friendship they formed. They all disliked each other at first. But they slowly grew to depend on each other. To trust that they would fight to save one another.
The history aspect of the story was very entertaining. The author, I think.. although I am no history buff, did a great job. Of course some things were changed but I think he did a great job at keeping the heart of the history true.
If you enjoy history and strong friendships then I highly recommend this book.
