5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and a wonderful read! Jan. 18 2003
By Jennie - Published on Amazon.com
"Golden Palaces" (sequel to "Swords and Scimitars")is a book that won't disappoint you! This is historical fiction at its best! Tancred Jehan Redwan is in 1097 Constantinople amid the crusaders whose aim is to take Jerusalem from the Seljuk Turks. Tancred's heart is not in the crusade but he finds himself caught up in it despite his will and also gets involved with Helena Lysander, the beautiful Daughter of the Purple Belt who is being given in marriage to a Moslem prince another cousin of his. Tancred also searches for the assassin who killed his brother Derek. Helena is searching for her mother Adrianna who was banished from Constantinople by her aunt Irene and is believed to be in Jerusalem. She turns to the man she has wanted to marry for so long but Philip Lysander sees his opportunity to become emperor and sacrifices Helena for it. Helena then has no choice but to turn to Tancred who is the only one who could help her find her mother and elude the marriage. Will Tancred and Helena be able to evade her aunt's plots and schemes? Nicholas Lysander, Helena's maverick bishop-warrior uncle and godfather of Tancred entrusts Helena to Tancred's care. He had once loved Irene before she turned corrupted and was banished himself from Constantinople. Informed by his niece that Adrianna is still alive and possibly held captive by a sultan, he returns to Constantinople in the company of Bohemond's crusaders and confronts his past with Irene and his sworn enemy,the corrupted bishop,Constantine. This a great plot that moves smoothly along and never gets boring. You must read this book yourself if you do not understand my review! I strongly recommend this book for an thrilling and enjoyable read!

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!!!! July 25 2006
By romancelvr - Published on Amazon.com
Though the entire series is great.... I have to say that Golden palaces is definitely my absolute favorite. I think I have read it more than 3 times! It's exciting and the chemistry between Tancred and Helena is neat to see. YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK! The Byzantine era is rarely wrote about if ever, by christian authors. But... it's an extremely facinating time in history and Linda Chaikin portrays it beautifully. The crusades, early Christianity, and Byzantine intrigue are all components of this great book. and don't forget unforgettable characters! Obviously Tancred is a hunk. I can only hope there's some like him still around. probably not, but I can dream right? You'll definitely enjoy this book, series, and author. GREAT book!
