Review quote

"Enjoyed the book.

Out of Granada, new author Ben Fine's leap into historical fiction is a rollicking good ride into a venue that few of us have known. Fine masterfully weaves the historical events of 16th century Spain and the expulsion of the Moors from their centuries long dominance in Spain with the fictional Jewish Benzoin family and their heroic son Miguel who are also being evicted by the newly dominant Spanish Inquisition..." -Reviewed by Charles Robertson, Author of The Elijah Conspiracy, The Children, The Omega Deception, Red Chameleon, Directive Sixteen, and Strike Zone

"Readers interested in an immersive experience fleeing the Spanish Inquisition in the 1500's will enjoy this accessible novel. " -Amy/Goodreads Reviewer

"In Out of Granada, Ben Fine demonstrates his abilities as a master storyteller, spinning the tale of the handsome Granadian commander, Don Miguel Benzion, as he flees from the Inquisition in Spain only to be captured by pirates in Cuba who force him to fight his way back to Europe to reunite with his family..."-Lynne Heinzmann, Author of Frozen Voices (New Rivers Press, 2016)
