Publisher's Summary

Of The Lion of St. Mark, G.A. Henty wrote: "I have laid my story in the time not of the triumphs of Venice but of her hardest struggle for existence, when she defended herself successfully against the coalition of Hungary, Padua, and Genoa, for never at any time were the virtues of Venice, her steadfastness, her patriotism, and her willingness to make all sacrifice for her independence more brilliantly shown. The historical portion of the story is drawn from Hazlitt's History of the Republic of Venice, and with it I have woven the adventures of an English boy endowed with a full share of that energy and pluck which, more than any other qualities, have made the British Empire the greatest the world ever saw."

A Great Listen

This was a very good book to listen to - I did not want to turn it off!!! The Adventure with the history made it all the more interesting - although I did need to find a map of Venice to help me picture the different locations.

Outstandingly entertaining and narrated

This historical fiction is captivating and the narration is extremely well done. The narrator successfully gives each character of the story (of which there are many both male and female) a distinct, recognizable, and nuanced voice. The history of Venice at the end of the 14th century comes to life herein.
