The Walls of Byzantium is the first novel in the sweeping, historical series The Mistra Chronicles by James Heneage. Set in fifteenth century Europe during a time of warring states and growing empires, the tale is shaped by the quest for a hidden treasure, rumoured to bequeath riches beyond belief and guarded by successive generations of famed warriors.
In the midst of growing unrest, rivals battle for this treasure, each desperate to secure its power for their own nations. But no-one can discover its whereabouts; nor even knows if it is still in the possession of those born to guard it…
