Now my faith is restored. . .Nicholas Guild is a fantastic storyteller. Every word has a purpose. His characters, his settings, his actions are crystal clear."Washington Post"Guild has surpassed himself with this long historical novel, which is entertaining from start to finish and leaves one with the feeling that there could yet be another to follow . . .dare we hope!"Publishers Weekly"Shot through with dark, exotic lyricism, Guild's majestic historical epic cuts a wide swath through ancient Assyria, Egypt, Phoenicia, Sicily, Greece. . .This saga serves up a rich, intoxicating feast, interweaving a cultural anthropology of unfamiliar lands and a stoic meditation on mortality, fate, revenge and justice, the ties of love and blood."Philadelphia InquirerThe Blood Star is the kind of novel they invented summers, vacations and beaches for.

Chain reaction by Nicholas Guild( Book )

5 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is 1944 and the war is not going well for the Germans. Their only hope, as the Reich has come to realize, lies in developing a nuclear weapon; but since the bombing of their heavy water installation in Norway, their efforts have lagged far behind those of the Americans. And so the U-boat approaching the Maine coast in the dark of a January night carries a very important passenger.Baron Joachim von Niehauser is a Prussian nobleman, a man well-versed in the arts of war yet one on whom its ugly lessons have not been lost, a man distrustful of the Nazi regime but loyal to his country. His mission is a critical one: to make contact with a German spy placed long ago in the Manhattan Project, obtain the critical data, and get it out of the country and into sympathetic hands.Chain Reaction is the chillingly suspenseful story of von Niehauser's desperate journey and his pursuit by FBI agent George Havens. Havens, too, is a decent man, one whose own vision of the war has broken under the pressure of his search across America for a brilliant and elusive quarry, a search that ends in a final, brutal confrontation on a winter hillside

The spartan dagger by Nicholas Guild( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On a cold night, at the outskirts of a peasant village, two Spartan youths wait to perform an ancient rite of passage. A family--father, mother, and their son--approaches, unarmed and defenseless. The young men step into the moonlight and claim their manhood by killing the adults. The boy escapes. The Spartans have no idea how terrible an enemy they have called forth. Nothing could have prepared them for the boy, Protos, whose name means "destined," whose cunning and inborn skill with weapons renders his enemies almost defenseless, and whose heart knows no pity. The Spartans have oppressed his people for centuries, and to break their power is to free all those they hold in subjection. As Protos grows to manhood, he begins to understand that his private war against his parents' murderers is also a struggle for liberation"--
The ironsmith by Nicholas Guild( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of Joshua, a carpenter from the village of Nazareth who is called to preach the coming of God's judgment. This is the story of his ministry and its terrible end, seen through the eyes of his kinsman and closest friend, Noah the ironsmith. Noah, a pious man but one who understands the darkness of a world in which treachery and murder are the common currency of power, is prepared to risk his own life to save Joshua's. Sifting through the tangled contradictions of the New Testament, scholars have arrived at a consensus about these events and their meaning, but the man behind them can only be brought to life through an act of the imagination. The Joshua of this novel -- the Jesus of Christian faith -- is revealed as a man like other men, a very human hero whose defeat at the hands of his enemies imparts to him a tragic grandeur. The product of twenty years of research and a deep understanding of the ancient world, Nicholas Guild's The Ironsmith is a story for everyone who cares about the origins of faith and the mystery of God's relationship with man

The spartan dagger by Nicholas Guild( Recording )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A good old classic Greek revenge story In the 4th Century B.C., Sparta had established control over most of Mainland Greece, and nowhere was her despotic rule more brutal than in her own territory, where over three centuries before Sparta had conquered the original population, the Helots. Every year, to remind the Helots that they were slaves, the Spartans sent out their young men to murder their defenseless subjects. On one of those nights, after having seen his parents killed, a fourteen year old Helot boy named Protos escapes, killing one of his pursuers. The Spartans hunt him relentlessly, but Protos will not consent to be a helpless victim. The hunters find that their own weapons are turned against them as Protos fights to escape Spartan rule. With the help of a young half-Egyptian witch woman, Protos makes his way to Thebes, which is on the verge of a rebellion against Spartan domination. By an act of almost suicidal daring, Protos helps the Thebans regain control of their city, setting the stage for the long war between Thebes and Sparta
