Three knights. Two empires. A battle that is to change everything.

In the Spring of 1386, the borders of Serbia are constantly invaded by the Ottoman marauding horde. During one of such forays, the Ottoman horsemen stole a tabernacle, with the contents known only to the Serbian Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović. He assigns two knights, both members of the Order of Dragon, to chase the plunderers: his godfather Duke Milan of Toplica and his sworn brother Ivan Kosančić, a famous swordsman. They are followed by a young and headstrong knight Miloš Obilić, who has just asked to marry the youngest daughter of Prince Lazar. While the black flags wave and wardrums echo in the long nights, the battle at the gates of Europe is about to begin.

The international success of the novel Constantine's Crossing is the best recommmendation for the new novel by this author. A story of faithfulness and love, with exciting, tightly woven and meticuously motivated plot, is based on the characters and events from the Serbian medieval history, related to the Battle of Kosovo in 1389.

English translations: Constantine's Crossing (Konstantinovo raskršće; also in Russian, Slovakian and Macedonian). Long Nights and Black Flags is translated into Slovenian.
