French novel about Kurdistan published "La Rose de Djam"

PostAuthor: dyaoko » Sat Nov 24, 2012 11:33 am

Sandrine Alexie, the french novelist has published another novel about Kurdistan, named "La Rose de Djam" featuring Saladin happening in Kurdistan,
this is her 3rd book about kurdistan, other books are
  • Kawa le Kurde
  • Ahmedê Khanî: Mem et Zîn (translation of Mem u Zin in French)
"La Rose de Djam" (Came Cem in Kurdish) is the first of the Serie the sub titile is the Calling of Forty, but Zohak is still there .

you can get the novel from Amazon for kindle or you can barrow it for free from Amazon Kindle Library, I am so happy to see Kurdistan to be in the center of novels.
here is the link if you want to read it :
http://www.amazon.com/Rose-Djam-French- ... de+Djam%22

Sandrine Alexie (piling) is one of the first members of Roj Bash Kurdistan, and we are proud to have her here :)

1186 B.C... The kingdom of jerusalem collapsed under the blow of Sultan Saladin's swords, who ruled on Cairo and Muslim Syria.The Fourth Crusade will soon begin. But there is a very different fight leading by the Forty, these wisemen who serve secretly a sole master, The Pole of the World, and try to preserve the cohesion of Universe while spreads the great Dragon of Night `s shadow.

A fantastic and adventurous quest which, from Syrian costs to the most unaccessible mountains of Kurdistan, unites or opposes all the heroes of Medieval Easter : Nordmen knights, Kurdish princes, Gascons mercenaries, powerful faqîrs, refined robbers and tricky mystics.


Thanks Sandrine :)

Interesting :-?

Is there an English translation?

Novels are generally fiction, is this book fact or fiction?

Fiction but with true historical facts : a novel half historical half fantasy, then.

The borders and the colored areas correspond exactly to the historical kingdoms of Franks, Turks and Kurds in 1186… I've already did that map for Kurdish Studies (Kurds and Saladin) and then i used it now with ameliorations for the novel :p

But this is a correct map of Kurdistan in 1186.

Last night i have completed my sleeping book that was Dragon Over Washington. I never seen before interesting like that it is about strange magical beings arriving in our world and starting what appears to be a great war to conquer it for their own use. Dragon Over Washington is the first book of what appears to be a very interesting series which sports a plotline not readily seen in other books.
