The Spear of Lepanto by Leon Radomile


It’s been a few years since I read the historical novel The Spear of Lepanto by Leon Radomile, but his recent book trailer for the new Kindle version caught my eye.  Here’s the story:

The Spear of Lepanto is an epic tale of adventure, romance and heroism set in the 16th century. A young student adventurer named Miguel de Cervantes, joins an elite group formed by the Pope and the Knights of Malta to recover an ancient relic of great power that is held in the Sultan’s palace of Topkapi in Constantinople. Pope Pius V believes that whoever possesses the Spear of Longinus will be invincible before their enemies. As two mighty fleets begin massing for the ultimate showdown that will decide who will be master of the Mediterranean, a dedicated group of knights’ race against all odds to complete their holy mission. Fasten your seatbelt and take a deep breath, you are about to enter the year 1570.

I hope you enjoy watching this book trailer, and especially the great music it contains, and that you’ll visit Leon Radomile’s site and consider a purchase of The Spear of Lepanto if you’re in the market for interesting historical fiction.
