The Blood Star
The sequel to Nicholas Guild’s international best-seller The Assyrian, The Blood Star, which Publishers Weekly called “a rich, intoxicating feast. . . shot through with dark, exotic lyricism,” is the epic story of Tiglath Ashur’s years of exile in Arabia, Egypt, Sidon, Greece and Sicily, and then of his return to his homeland of Assyria, where the mystery of his fate is at last unraveled.
