  1. Once in a blue moon I discover a book by accident that catches me by surprise and entertains me with a wonderful story Assassins of Alamut is one of those books I was browsing and stumbled across this book and found the subject matter quite interesting, so I decided to order it, hoping for the best This book turned out to be well worth the money The story tells of Talon, a young Frank who is kidnapped by Middle Eastern assassins and brought into their world, a world that is very foreign to him T [...]


  2. During an attack on a caravan, Frankish soldiers are drawn into battle with the Turks At the same time, a second, smaller group of interlopers snatches fourteen year old Talon de Gilles and the priest Jean de Loche and whisks them away from Palestine Not once during the long journey to Persia is Talon permitted a chance to escape, and he soon learns that a silent captive suffers fewer beatings.There is little Sir Huges de Gilles can do to rescue his son The only ones who might have a chance are [...]


  3. Wonderful adventureThis kickoff to a series is full of adventure and historical insight It is a bit bloated, and the research sometimes gets in the way of the story, but I am waiting to read of Talon s adventures.


  4. I love the idea I like the story and the characters I m not so crazy about the style of writing For me, it doesn t flow and although the settings are exotic I don t come away with a feeling for the locations The descriptions are lacking somehow Perhaps a active editor would have helped It helped that I read an e version and was able to access the web and see pictures of the landscapes I read the book hoping for a bit insight into the culture and times The second novel succeeds at this subtly, [...]


  5. A fun adventure story that taught me a lot about 12th century Persia It s the standard swashbuckling tale of a young Frank who gets kidnapped by assassins and brought up to become one of them He make friends, falls in love, and battles treacherous foes, meeting victory and tragedy along the way The book s strong point is it s wealth of geographical, historical, and cultural knowledge It falls short in that the hero is virtually incapable of making mistakes He seems too virtuous, strong, and loya [...]


  6. Very well crafted exciting novel of the Holy Land at the time of the Crusades Talon a French nobles young son is captured by the Ismali sect of Muslims He is raised and trained as an Assassin until he finally regains his freedom, leaving his beloved and his friend behind The first of a trilogy.


  7. Ever since my wife to be returned from a summer in Iran 1972 , I have always been fascinated by that country and its history Since I also teach Islamic Studies college professor , I found this book to be an interesting possibility of a very narrow part of Iran s past history It s not for everyone, and I did not like the ending, but if a second book comes out, I will read it.


  8. Good read although at times dragged with insignificant detail At other times didn t provide enough, especially when describing an action area The ending was a disappointmentBoy doesn t get girl and reader left hanging about final resolution.




  9. yi kitapt r, baz k s mlar tarihi ger ekleri arp tarak anlatsa da felsefik olarak dahi tatminkard r neririm.
