Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

History comes dangerously alive!

From the international bestselling author comes the sequel to The Archer's Tale — the second volume in his acclaimed Grail Quest series — a rousing epic of vengeance, blood, honor, and love.

Review:

"Cornwell is meticulous about historical facts and period detail, and his descriptions of butchery with arrow, mace and battleaxe are nothing if not convincing....Cornwell fans will eat this up." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Historically accurate and huge fun. Vintage Cornwell." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"With its wealth of likable characters and historical detail, this enjoyable, fast-paced novel will probably generate renewed interest in the Grail and the Hundred Years' War. Highly recommended." Library Journal

Review:

"A swashbuckling historical adventure set in England during the Hundred Years' War. Cornwell writes with energy, enthusiasm, and wonderful detail." Book Sense

Review:

"It is indeed a pleasure learning to love history through Bernard Cornwell's work. He takes an otherwise dry subject (to me, at least), works his storytelling magic, and turns it into high entertainment." BookReporter.com

Review:

"Another typically excellent Cornwell work....There is no romantic story here, simply a gritty, sometimes horrific tale of human greed, pride, and stupidity, told in realistic detail, including murder and torture." VOYA

Synopsis:

The spellbinding sequel to The Archer's Tale is the thrilling story of a fearless young archer who sets out to avenge his family honor and winds up on a quest for the Holy Grail.
