Vividly recreating the past, NJ Holmes's Trebizond is a thrilling story of war, betrayal and undying love.
It is the eleventh century. In the years before the First Crusade, the Byzantine Empire crumbles before the onslaught of the Turkish hordes from Asia.
Only one man can defeat them: Theodore Gabras. He loses his wife nbd family in a Turkish raid and vows to find them again. In his way stands the most brutal of the Turkish warlords. Theodore's journey takes him to the great battle of Manzikert, where the Byzantines are tragically betrayed and defeated. But all is not lost and in a last desperate stand at Trebizond the Empire finds a new hero.
