In the early 14th century, falling in love with the wrong person can bring terrible consequences. Young Garcés experiences this firsthand when, as a result of a forbidden love, he is forced to cross the Mediterranean as a member of the Almogavars—a force of professional soldiers and mercenaries from the Crown of Aragon—and take part in their battles against the Turks in Byzantium. A skillful mix of adventure and history, this novel is sure to fascinate and engross young adult readers.

A principios del siglo XIV, enamorarse de la persona no indicada puede traer terribles consecuencias. El joven Garcés tendrá ocasión de comprobarlo cuando, por causa de un amor prohibido, se ve obligado a cruzar el Mediterráneo como miembro de los Almogávares—un ejército de soldados y mercenarios profesionales de la Corona de Aragón—y protagonizar sus batallas contra los turcos en Bizancio. Una mezcla hábil de aventura e historia, esta novela seguramente fascinará y absorberá a los lectores adolescentes.
