Two boys, two faiths, one unholy war—two boys from opposing worlds come face to face in a thought-provoking historical adventure When Adam’s mother dies unconfessed, he pledges to save her soul with dust from the Holy Land.

To keep Salim safe, his father buys him an apprenticeship with an esteemed traveling doctor. But Salim’s employment leads him to the heart of Sultan Saladin’s camp—and into battle against the barbaric and unholy invaders.
