Venice: Ethan Gage has escaped after surviving the naval battle of Trafalgar. His plan: To circumvent the French Empire and rescue his wife, Astiza, and son, Harry, from imprisonment by a ruthless mystic who seeks revenge for disfigurement, and from an evil dwarf alchemist who experiments with the occult on Prague's Golden Lane.
Using death as his ruse, Gage seeks an unlikely ally in the Jewish Napoleonic soldier Gideon Mandel, who saves Ethan's life at Austerlitz, and Gideon's father, Aaron, a rabbi whose knowledge of the legends of the Golem adds another layer to the hunt for the Brazen Head. The three must decipher clues from Durendal, the sword of Roland. Meanwhile, Astiza uses her own research to concoct an explosive escape and find a lost tomb, with their tormentors in relentless pursuit.
William Dietrich skillfully weaves intrigue, magic, romance, and danger in a historical thriller that sprints from the fury of the Napoleonic wars to the mystical puzzles of Central Europe, where a medieval machine promises power over the future.

I love the Ethan Gage Series
Why would you ask me this question this is all preference and I prefer audible with books, such as these
I love the Ethan Gage serious, it's the new Indiana Jones, but even better!!! Love the historical fiction part, as well as all the other character development. The ONLY bummer is I'm about done with the series, only one more book to go...If you haven't read the Ethan Gage series, get on board, you'll love the adventure and ride...
