From the Publisher:
In the Kingdom of Aran, in the Caucasus Mountains, in 950 A.D., two adventurers wander the region, plying their trade as swords for hire, until they become embroiled in a bloody coup in the medieval Jewish empire of the Khazars as bodyguards for a fugitive prince with a mysterious secret.In the Kingdom of Aran, in the Caucasus Mountains in 950 A.D., two adventurers wander the region, plying their trade as swords for hire, until they become involved in a bloody coup in the medieval Jewish empire of the Khazars as bodyguards for a fugitive prince.
Author Bio
Michael Chabon
Chabon wrote his first short story (heavily influenced by the Sherlock Holmes stories) when he was 10. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, then studied at the University of California-Irvine writer's program; his first novel, THE MYSTERIES OF PITTSBURGH--his M.F.A. thesis--was published when he was 24.

Praise

"In Michael Chabon's gleeful new novel...the action is intricate and exuberant....The plot may twist a time or two too many, [but] it's hard to resist its gathering momentum, not to mention the sheer headlong pleasure of Chabon's language." - Susann Cokal 10/28/2007

"Chabon has a wonderful time writing intentionally purple prose and playing with conventions that were most popular in the days of Rudyard Kipling and Talbot Mundy.... A significant change from Chabon's weightier novels, this dazzling trifle is simply terrific fun." (starred review) 09/03/2007
