Era(s): 11th century

Dara, a young shepherd from a remote village in the Seljuq Empire, is about to marry his love, Golnar, when the unthinkable happens: Golnar is kidnapped on their wedding day. With his sworn brother Borzoo at his side, Dara embarks on a journey to avenge Golnar by joining the Alamut fortress, the stronghold of Hassan Sabbah and his lethal feda’i assassins. Dara soon makes a startling discovery that tests his devotion to Alamut and brings his greatest vice to the forefront. Overcoming his vice puts him at odds with Alamut, and Dara faces a daunting decision: fulfill his sworn destiny with the feda’is or desert Alamut—something no feda’i has dared do before. His decision ultimately leads to more astounding discoveries for Dara and his brother Borzoo, yet can Dara continue to conceal the shocking secret about his brother’s true identity? The Deserter of Alamut takes readers on an epic adventure full of twists and turns that test the loyalty of two brothers as they seek to fulfill their destinies.
