"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Aidan, a ninth century Irish monk is chosen to join a quest, to the farthest reaches of the known world: the glittering city of Byzantium, there to present the Holy Roman Emperor with the magnificent illuminated book of Kells.
From solitude and innocence, Aidan is plunged into the heart of a dazzling, corrupt empire. Thrilling, awe-inspiring, terrifying, the journey leads to an adventure beyond his wildest dreams.
“This is a rip-roaring adventure story; the pace rarely flags. There’s scheming, murder and betrayal aplenty.”
Born and raised in America, Stephen Lawhead moved to the UK, to Oxford, in order to research into Celtic legend and history. He lives in Iffley with his wife, writer Alice Slaikeu Lawhead, and their two sons, Ross and Drake.
