From Library Journal
Prince Aidan, the half-elven son of the Rhiyanan king, travels to the Holy Land in seach of adventure, only to discover himself locked in a deadly vendetta against the legendary Assassins and their most powerful weapon--a creature as immortal and seductive as himself. From the stronghold of Saladin to the court of the leper king in Jerusalem, Tarr's latest novel (set in the same universe as "The Hound and the Falcon" trilogy) captures the intensity and the sensuality, as well as the stark reality, of the medieval world. This compelling work from an excellent historical fantasist is highly recommended.
