A WORLD ON FIRE

Heneage, James

Εκδότης Quercus , ISBN 9781786480200

Their revolution would ignite a continent...
An epic novel set during one of the most savage and dramatic moments in
European history.
Greece, 1824
In the wild south, the people of the Mani have risen up against four hundred years of
Ottoman rule. But initial triumph leads to bitter feuding among the Greek victors and the
Sultan sends his vassal, Ibrahim Pasha of Egypt, to invade. Burning everything in his
path, he is on the point of victory. Only the intervention of the Great Powers of France,
Russia and Britain can save Greece.
Hara, young daughter of a Maniot chief, is the fearless symbol of her people's spirit. When
she rescues Greek Prince Tzanis from a shipwreck, on his way to deliver secret gold for
the revolution, they fall in love but are forced apart by events.
Yet a shared resolve to wreak vengeance on Turkish rule unites them again, and their
heroism and sacrifice will ultimately inspire an unlikely band of men and women to join
them in rescuing Greece. Will their plan to involve the Great Powers succeed before
Greece is destroyed by fire?
