The Lion of Mistra

(2015)
(The third book in the Mistra Chronicles / Rise of Empires Chronicles series)
A novel by

 
 
This is a rich tale of clashing empires, trade wars and tempestuous love in an age when the fate of the world hung on the survival of Byzantium; an age that made the modern world.
The Ottoman Turks are at the gates of Constantinople and Luke Magoris, descended from princes of England, has to find a fortune to build defences for his beloved Mistra, the last glorious outpost of Imperial Rome, as well as saving the Emperor. He turns to China, to the Ming Empire, for trade and to Renaissance Italy for its rapidly developing banks. Both are entirely new roles for Luke and his Varangian brotherhood and many pitfalls befall him. And yet the Varangian treasure - which only he can uncover - may hold the key to all.
The third novel in the epic Rise of Empires series sees its hero Luke finally come face to face with his destiny to save Byzantium.
