Was Salahuddin the man he wanted to be? Was it his fault he changed so much or were his reasons justified?
When I originally bought this set of books I expected to learn about the real Salahuddin, his life and his exploits. However these books are fiction so how could that really be possible. Yes parts of the books are based on fact but what really did I gain from these books?
A message. A warning. A wake up call.
For me to realise that no matter how good our original intentions. Or how we may mistakenly believe we are doing something for the greater good. If we make the wrong choices by not sticking to our morals then the only person we can blame is ourselves.
That it is never too late to change but to live without integrity is a life that can never truly be content.
The first section covers events up to the surrender of Jerusalem by Balian in 1187; readers may well find, as I did, images from the film 'Kingdom of Heaven' intruding into their thoughts as the same events unfold. In the second part, Richard the Lionheart makes his entrance. Both the political and family twists and turns, as well as the battle scenes, are very well done - I didn't skip anything, which is pretty unusual for me on a first reading. Congratulations to Mr Hight for a top-notch read.
Thoroughly recommend this series on Saladin, a historical character who receives a lot less attention from writers than is deserved. Please feel free to correct me and recommend any other historical fiction based on this great leader.
