(From the publisher):
Return to a time when magic ruled the world, when people lived and died in the name of honor and risked all in the honor of love. Alamut is the tale of two great and timeless beings: Prince Aidan, born of a royal, human father and an immortal sorceress...and the Lady Morgiana, Aidan's enemy and perhaps the only woman he can truly love.
In the years between the Second and Third Crusades, Prince Aidan travels to the Kingdom of Jerusalem to visit his mortal nephew, only to discover him slain at the command of the powerful Sinan.
Aidan swears to avenge the murder—but he has not forseen Morgiana, an immortal slave-assassin whose powers are greater even than his own. Nor could he have known that she alone would speak to those sacred places of his heart...
