books 15-16:  One Thousand and One Nights, Volumes 6-7 by Jeon JinSeok

Sehara completes the story of Socrates and Alcibiades.  Shahryar is lured into a confrontation with his brother Shazaman by proof that Shazaman is harboring and has been having an affair with Shahryar's estranged wife.  While Shahryar is away from the palace, the Crusaders, who secretly have a deal with Shazaman in which he gets free trade routes and they get Jerusalem without a struggle, attack and take over, including taking custody of Sehara.  Shahryar tries to rush back to save Sehara and his people but is hijacked by Ali, who is still out for revenge against the sultan for killing his beloved.  Shahryar convinces Ali to postpone his revenge until Baghdad can be liberated, with which Ali agrees to assist.  Meanwhile, Sehara tells a story of 21st century war to the invading king, bringing in concepts of the Tower of Babel and subsequent misunderstandings among different peoples and the power of compassion.
