Vienna, 1683

After months of laying siege to the city, Kara Mustafa, Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire is still struggling to find a way to take it – in a civilized manner, of course. Meanwhile, Katrina Obermann, fresh-faced but surprisingly thoughtful for a Austrian peasant, starts her new life of slavery; Selim the scribe has had it up to here with the Vizier and his idiotic ideas; Franz the Viennese baker’s surreptitious assault on the Ottoman camp is taking shape – literally; and foot-soldier Murad, son of Murad, is hungover, and not in the mood for any “final assault” bullshit at all.
