Publisher's Summary

The eagerly anticipated follow-up to the best-selling Harlequin, this is the second installment in Bernard Cornwell's Grail Quest series. It is 1346. While King Edward III fights in France, England lies exposed to the threat of invasion. Thomas of Hookton, archer and hero of Crécy, finds himself back in the north just as the Scots invade on behalf of their French allies.
Thomas is determined to pursue his personal quest: to discover whether a relic he is searching for is the Holy Grail. But once again it is the archers whose skills will be called upon, and who will become the true heroes of the battle.

"Crackling with good deeds, fine characters and sparkling set pieces, it confirms yet again Cornwell's reputation for masterly historical novels" ( Daily Mail)
"It is all spectacular, rattling good stuff: war and torture; love, lust and loss" ( The Times)
"The battle scenes, as always, are masterful; and the vignettes of everyday living, in times of extreme hardship, have the ring of simple truth" ( Sunday Telegraph)
"A very fine writer" ( Economist)

Vintage Cornwell

This is an excellent series and advances the story of Thomas of Hookton who is an extraordinary English archer in the 1300s. The story develops further and Cornwell pulls no punches, this isn't an author that treats his main characters with kid gloves. It's a great historical military thriller and plays well on the superstitious nature of the population at the time.

The book is well narrated and moves at an excellent pace. The plot has depth and a pleasingly varied cast of characters. Highly recommended.

Typically addictive from Bernard Cornwall.

Excellent story. Very occasionally Andrew Cullum’s accents get a touch confused (there are a huge number to deal with). Excellent speed of delivery - really enjoyable and highly recommended.
