Josseran Sarrazini is a Templar Knight, educated for warfare. yet because the Christian garrisons within the Holy Land start to fall to the Saracen, he needs to embark upon a venture of peace: to the golden palaces at Xanadu, to hunt an alliance with Kubilai Khan, ruler of the best empire in background and commander of the invincible Mongol horde.Josseran's activity is ambitious. To journey the treacherous Silk highway to the sting of the recognized international. To cheat starvation, thirst, and dying. And to forge an important allegiance with a those that don't honour his reason, or his God. Blazing with event, epic in scope, and totally compulsive, Silk street weaves a spellbinding tale of warfare, honour and hope onto the substantial tapestry of the medieval East.
