Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Macho, sexy, profoundly bloody and concerned with spiritual salvation. This wondeful adventure story is also an unavoidably resonant meditation on the power of religion to incite war... The Religion contains some beautiful prose" (The Sunday Telegraph)

"With a slow-burning pace and a knack for a cliffhanger, Willocks builds the tension terrifically amid graphic slaughter and velvet-gloved treachery . . . paints its broad strokes with inventiveness and intelligence" (Time Out)

"A gripping story with reliable factual underpinnings" (Times Literary Supplement)

"A novel of high adventure, blood, guts and romantic love . . . as master craftsman, [Willocks] tells his story with extraordinary pace" (Literary Review)

"This sprawling epic brims with religious passions, political intrigue and steamy romance. A thrilling plot" (Library Journal) --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Quatrième de couverture

'Macho, sexy, profoundly bloody and concerned with spiritual salvation. This wonderful adventure story is also an unavoidably resonant meditation on the power of religion to incite war.' Sunday Telegraph

May 1565: From the shores of the Golden Horn, Suleiman the Magnificent, Emperor of the Ottomans, has sent the greatest armada since antiquity to wipe out Islam's most implacable foe, the Christian Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem, in their stronghold on the island of Malta. Known to the Turks as 'The Hounds of Hell', the knights call themselves 'The Religion'.

Meanwhile, in Sicily, a disgraced and exiled Maltese noblewoman, Carla La Penautier, has been trying to return to the doomed island in an attempt to find the bastard son who was taken from her at his birth. Carla recruits a notorious adventurer and arms merchant - Mattias Tannhauser - to help her evade the Inquisition and to escape on the last galley to run the Turkish blockade. As the ensuing apocalyptic conflict between Islam and Christianity becomes the most brutal and harrowing siege in military history, Tannhauser and Carla must survive the bloody inferno and track down a twelve-year-old boy whose face they have never seen and whose name they do not know. And neither of them reckon on the return of the avenging Inquisitor, Ludovico Ludovici...

'The Religion is a novel for our times, dealing as it does with the clash between the Christian West and the Islamic East...as his epic tale unfolds, he examines, through the reactions of his cast of characters, all of them caught up in extreme circumstances, the phenomenon of religion.' Independent

'An epic in which we can see the seeds of all our modern woes.' The Times

'As gripping a tale of derring-do as has been written in recent decades...a classic of its kind.' Mail on Sunday
