    1. A fairly average conclusion to a trilogy, in that it is a palatable easily digested round up of the storyline, if one that doesn't actually make you stand up and go WOW!If you're reading this review without having read the previous two books, stop reading now and go pick up the previous two books as I really don't see the need to explain the nuances and assets of Hight as a writer three books into a series.Still here?Good.Hight deserves credit for being the first writer with Richard I in it who [...]


    2. Holy War is the third and final book in the excellent Saladin Trilogy from historian Jack Hight—a relatively new author in the historical fiction genre. This book doesn’t disappoint and and continues where the second book in the trilogy, Kingdom left off, with Saladin’s humiliating defeat at Montgisard.Peace returns to the Holy Land, yet all is not what it seems in the Kingdom of Jerusalem—the leper King Baldwin is dying. Would be successors to the throne are squabbling and bickering amo [...]


    3. It’s so hard to believe it’s over.We followed two truly exceptional men through their lifetime; one who was actually real, and the other whom we could only wish he had been real. We saw the two sides in an unbiased way, each having their positive and negative features.John was a man of honor even if he realized that in the end it meant nothing. His life fell apart in front of his eyes and only a life-long friend remained whom he could turn to.And Saladin was a man, nothing more, nothing less [...]


    4. So finally the trilogy ends. In book one I met a young boy with courage honour and kindness. In book two a man who's honour had left him. Thankfully in book three Salahuddin remembers what honour is. These books really got me thinking on how choices we make and situations we find ourselves make us into the people we are. How even the best of intentions can lead to the wrong decisions.Was Salahuddin the man he wanted to be? Was it his fault he changed so much or were his reasons justified? When I [...]


    5. Historical novels are a small part of my reading habits. And so far I feel that lots of them fall into the same trap. Because they want to cover a to broad spectrum, or want to advance to the really interesting stuff to quickly, historical novels sometimes read like an accounting of historical events without the build up or story structure to support it. Basically, some parts of it reads like, and this and then this, and then this, etcThis book is also a victim of that in some places. Also some [...]


    6. And lo, the Saladin trilogy ends. Fairly decently written, even if Saladin's peace achieved at the end seems more of a by-product of not being able to win the war rather than a genuine desire for peace. Which kind of takes away the impact. The author does seem stuck on what he wants to portray about Saladin


    7. Excellent storytellingA brilliant story, well researched and written. An excellent conclusion to this trilogy, all three were a pleasure to read. The historical characters were brought to life as were the countries and the cities of that time.
