The 11th century is widely believed by historians to be the peak of the Islamic Golden Age. This was a time when Persia became the hub of scientific activity and the region’s literature, philosophy, art and medicine flourished. However, it was also a period of bloody revolts, royal feuds, conspiracies and violent invasions. This vibrant and volatile episode in Persian history becomes the backdrop of “Alamut, The Assassins' Nest,” a new novel by M. Shokouhi N.
In his debut in the world of historical fiction, Shokouhi takes readers on a journey deep into a landscape of passion and power of 11th century Persia. At the center of it all are Alidoost and Golnar, lovers who become entangled in a complex web of political intrigue and murder.
Alidoost and Golnar’s romance is cut short when Alidoost is wrongly imprisoned after being accused of murdering his childhood friend. Pitted against powerful enemies, the young hero must find a way to free himself, reunite with his beloved and avenge his family name. Will he succeed?
Seamlessly weaving history and fiction, real and speculative, Shokouhi lets readers examine some of life’s biggest questions in light of a breathtaking story of love against all odds. “Alamut, The Assasins' Nest” is historical fiction at its finest.
