This time they are sent by Queen Elizabeth 1 to assist Ivan the Terrible against the Tatars
on 8 October 2014
The third book in the 'Clash of Empire' series, sees our hero Nicholas Ingoldsby, aided by Smith, Stanley and Hodge. They are the survivors of books 1 & 2, where the Crusaders fought to repel the Ottoman Empire at Malta and Lepanto respectively. This time they are sent by Queen Elizabeth 1 to assist Ivan the Terrible against the Tatars. The siege of Malta is five stars and better, a superb book. Ivan is a poor conclusion (assuming this is the last of the series).
