In this, the third book in the Jerusalem Trilogy, Balian d'Ibelin has survived the devastating Christian defeat at the Battle of Hattin and walked away a free man after the surrender of Jerusalem, but he is baron of nothing in a kingdom that no longer exists. Haunted by the tens of thousands of Christians now in Saracen captivity, he is determined to regain what has been lost. The arrival of a vast crusading army under the soon-to-be-legendary Richard the Lionheart offers hope but also conflict, as natives and crusaders clash and French and English quarrel.
