Summary
The young and beautiful gazell-eyed Halima arrives at Alamut in a wooden cage, oblivious to the machinations that have delivered her. Equally as young and handsome Avani ibn Tahir enters through the fortress gates on horseback, prepared to avenge his grandfather's death. Unbeknownst to them both, they will each soon be playing leading roles in the tragedy steadily unfolding behind the walls of Alamut. For it is here that the Master of Alamut-- the Old Man of the Mountain and self-proclaimed prophet Hasan ibn Sabbah-- has devised a scheme, after years of arduous study, that will extend his rule across Persia and ultimately alter the political landscape of the world for centuries-- but not without horrible human consequences
