Plot Summary:

Tension is mounting. Despite 500 years of the Spanish Reconquista, Christian Kings have managed to recapture only two-thirds of the Iberian Peninsula from Muslims. When Muslim leader Al-Nasir starts amassing troops from Africa, Christians declare a crusade to recruit and gather military forces in Toledo.

The epic 1212 Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa looms. With a call of duty and a sense of holy devotion Knight Templar Pedro Vega Garcia, whose secrets run deeper than his battle scars, is eager to meet his rivals. However, his immediate challenge just may be his 16-year-old niece Clara and her insatiable curiosity about Islamic and Arabic cultures.

“Rabbi Michael Lerner notes that the political situation in the Middle East is unstable because the debate has been hijacked by extremists on both sides. Mira Canion takes a similar position in Rival, with respect to Muslim-Christian hostility in Spain. Her focus is the battle of 1212 of Las Navas de Tolosa. This novel is written in basic Spanish for Spanish students, but is a genuine historical novel and easily holds the
reader’s interest. A good book! I look forward to more.” Dr. Stephen Krashen
