Book giveaway: Master of Shadows

Master of Shadows is the first historical adventure by author and TV presenter Neil Oliver. Set in the fifteenth century, from the lawless borderlands of Scotland to the crumbling majesty of Constantinople, this is a must for fans of Diana Gabaldon and epic page-turners.
Three fates intertwine behind the walls of Constantinople as an army gathers before the city; Scotsman John Grant searches for a girl he made a death-bed promise to find; runaway Lena seeks salvation in the ancient city, and Prince Constantine lives out the consequences of saving the life of a broken-hearted girl...

As the Siege of Constantinople reaches its climax, these three must make a choice between head and heart, duty and destiny in an adventure that will echo through the ages.
