Hereticby Bernard Cornwell
Synopses & Reviews
In the flames of unceasing war, a young archer's heart, will, and courage will be supremely tested in the conclusion of an epic quest for vengeance and the greatest prize in all history: The Holy Grail.
"Cornwell is a master of the historical action novel, and he outdoes himself again....Graphic battlefield action, strong characters and sharp plotting are Cornwell's trademarks, and his fans will love this latest melee." Publishers Weekly
"The usual Cornwell bull's-eye." Kirkus Reviews
"Oozing with all the blood, gore, and action that fans of Cornwell's graphically detailed historical fiction have come to expect, the conclusion of this gripping trilogy is on target to please a ready-made audience." Booklist
"Cornwell delivers intense and detailed battle action to illustrate just how mad men will be driven by the grail. Though at times the complex plot seems unwieldy, Heretic ultimately satisfies. Highly recommended." Library Journal
