The hourglass is trickling, the noose is tightening, the gate is closing… As the Royal Treasury Fleet of the king of Spain prepares to sail to the New World, the cunning and evil Grand Inquisitor engages in a battle of the minds with the head of the Jewish underground. The fate of thousands of Jews living in the Maghreb states of Northern Africa is dependent on the result of this life and death struggle. This dramatic and adventurous tale is based on historical fact. Illustrated with 3-D pictures which draw the reader right into the historical period, this book is the first of its kind. Join Francisco, Diego and Avraham, the three brothers of the Curiel family, as they battle the evil that threatens them – with strength, wisdom and sacrifice. Take part in a secret Seder on the first night of Pesach in a dark underground cellar, steal into the port of Seville right under the noses of the Inquisitors, join stormy sea battles and meet a lineup of unforgettable characters who will continue to accompany you well after you have finished reading the book. An enriching, educational and enjoyable reading experience for young and old alike.
