Product description

Two boys. Two faiths. One unholy war…

When Adam’s mother dies, he vows to save her soul with dust from the Holy Land. Employed as a dog-boy for a knight, he joins the Crusade to reclaim Jerusalem from the Muslims. Every part of Adam burns with desire to strike down the infidel enemy! Meanwhile Salim, a merchant’s son, lives quietly in the port of Acre – until awful news comes: the Crusaders are attacking! To keep Salim safe, his father buys him an apprenticeship with a famous travelling doctor. But Salim’s new job will lead him to the heart of Sultan Saladin’s camp; into battle with the barbaric invaders… and face to face with another boy: Adam. A gripping tale of faith and adventure, shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal.
