Quest Publications will soon release the first historical novel written by Lefki Sarantinou, called "HAMSIN Wind of the East". 

 

"A story that unfolds when the Crusades are coming to an end. The Muslims are constantly gaining ground against the Christian possessions in the Holy Lands.  The Templar and the Hospitaller knights are trying to fight back, having their own rivalries to overcome as well. Machinations in royal courts and a Pope unable to react.  The betrayal and fall of knight orders. And amongst all that, a family secret which brings a young man to the East. A deep friendship between two knights who overcome the hatred between their orders. A secret organization which aims to preserve ancient knowledge and its sworn enemies who are trying to destroy it. A treasure that must be saved. And right where everything seems lost, a love that comes to save the game. This is the world of Eleftheria Sarantinou's first novel. The author tries to offer us a gripping narrative which unfolds in many different places: in the Holy Lands, Egypt, Western Europe, Cyprus and Rhodes and offers us a vivid description of the Christian possessions in the East, in the knights' castles and the courts of kings. Above all, it offers a combination of action and mystery which promises to keep us fixed on it."
