The Last Days of His Father's Kingdom recalls a time when Islam was the world's great and progressive civilization; when the Moors ruled Spain, and their kingdom-called Andalusia-spread across present-day Spain; when glittering cities like Cordoba and Granada teemed with economic vitality, sponsored world-class scientific research, and boasted universities of distinguished scholars and learning. Today, the Kingdom of Andalusia is gone, but its many achievements live on in a thousand forgotten influences. The story opens in 1491, when the Spanish seizure of Andalusia is in its final stages. Boabdil, the last sultan of the Moorish kingdom, has summoned Mysterium Tremendum, a renowned Sufi mystic from Baghdad, to employ his celebrated telepathic powers in the struggle against the Spanish. Mysterium arrives in Granada and meets the sultan in the Great Hall of the Ambassadors of the Alhambra, the palace fortress that has stood over the hills of the city for nearly 800 years. Mysterium, who has no particular interest in the mission and little knowledge of the kingdom's illustrious history, will soon be swept up in the desperate struggle for the ancient kingdom's survival. Through his eyes, we witness not only the tragic end of the Kingdom of Andalusia but also the courageous attempt of its citizens to hold on to their beloved home. The Last Days of His Father's Kingdom is a sweeping historical saga with deep emotional currents. It's a story from a bygone era with the power to startle us with its relevance to our modern condition.
