Rediscovering one’s Jewish roots in the midst of the Crusades seems a daunting task. Martin searches for meaning as he struggles for survival in a desperate time in this action-packed historical drama. After Martin’s parents are killed by bandits, he gives up his Judaism as a form of self-protection and goes on his own personal quest to find himself. Along the way, he hones his fighting and weapons skills and considers joining the Crusader march towards Jerusalem. Ultimately, as Martin evolves, he finds a place for himself that he never thought existed, a place that holds an age-old message: To have faith in a world filled with barbarism. Martin comes back to the realization that the Torah is the lamp, the sword, and shield to protect his way in the world. This book provides a well-researched glimpse into lifestyles, attitudes, and religious practices of those living in Constantinople. It has great appeal to a Young Adult male audience for its action and adventure tale. Many will recognize their own life journey in Martin’s quest and relate to his tribulations.
