WILLIAM NAPIER The Last Crusaders: Ivan the Terrible
Hardened by battle, seasoned by war, four adventurers caught in the path of one of history’s most enigmatic leaders. Nicholas Ingoldsby is summoned to London for an audience with the Queen. He is to go on a diplomatic mission to Constantinople, the heart of the old enemy – and onward, to a rising power called Muscovy. Here the Russian Czar has just proposed marriage to Elizabeth herself. Such a bold offer should be no surprise, for this is no normal leader: Ivan IV Vasil’evich is known to his people as Ivan the Terrible. But this rising Christian power in the North has also caught the attention of the Ottomans, and soon Nicholas and his fellow travellers are caught up in their most dangerous adventure yet… ‘Napier is good at evoking the adrenaline rush of all the fighting . . . but excels even more at creating characters who seize the readers’ attention and imagination’ Sunday Times William Napier was born in 1965 and educated in Cheltenham, Oxford and London. He lives in Wiltshire and travels widely.
