Pirates of Christ
by Edward Lamond
Eight years in the making, this exceptionally detailed novel graphically describes the Siege of Malta in 1565, and the daily life and struggles of the soldiers and ordinary people involved on both sides.
The Siege months are the setting for a heart pounding, rip roaring romantically charged historical novel chronicling the titanic struggle of the Knights Hospitaller of St. John and the people of Malta against the invading Ottoman armies of Sultan Suleiman and his Turkish Armada.
Amazingly authoritative and graphic descriptions of naval warfare of the period lead into the terrifying and horribly destructive siege and land warfare where over 50,000 Islamic and Christian soldiers died over the course of 4 tortuous months.
And behind this monumental struggle is an artfully told stirring story of love and intrigue, murder and passion.
The historical background has been exhaustively researched by Edward Lamond.
