Saladin and Silver

First of all a huge thanks to the author for providing me with the book, Saladin and Silver , The second book in the Saladin series. Also thank you for allowing me to experience such an amazing series. Saladin and Silver is like 8th or 9th book from author’s work that I am reading. That in itself has to mean something right ? Of course it does and this particular book is the follow up on the already exciting series that I had reviewed back last year.
