Publisher's Summary

Venice: Ethan Gage has escaped after surviving the naval battle of Trafalgar. His plan: To circumvent the French Empire and rescue his wife, Astiza, and son, Harry, from imprisonment by a ruthless mystic who seeks revenge for disfigurement, and from an evil dwarf alchemist who experiments with the occult on Prague's Golden Lane.

Using death as his ruse, Gage seeks an unlikely ally in the Jewish Napoleonic soldier Gideon Mandel, who saves Ethan's life at Austerlitz, and Gideon's father, Aaron, a rabbi whose knowledge of the legends of the Golem adds another layer to the hunt for the Brazen Head. The three must decipher clues from Durendal, the sword of Roland. Meanwhile, Astiza uses her own research to concoct an explosive escape and find a lost tomb, with their tormentors in relentless pursuit.

William Dietrich skillfully weaves intrigue, magic, romance, and danger in a historical thriller that sprints from the fury of the Napoleonic wars to the mystical puzzles of Central Europe, where a medieval machine promises power over the future.

    "Up there with the others"

    This books leaps from one adventure and historical event to the next without taking a breath in between. Good swashbuckling fun with dungeons, battles, sword play, musketry and death defying acts. Slightly different with using two narrators one being a woman, I found this a little difficult to warm to as it changed the pace. I also found the dungeon section slow moving and a little boring. The villains needed to be a little more human with perhaps comedy or a silly weakness thrown in but lets hope William Dietrich throws another Ehtan Gage Adventure together as if you are up to this book, you are probably hooked.
    Now if you were to put this into a film interpretation, perhaps Matthew McConaughey would be perfect, unless he thinks he a little too old to play Ethan.
