While this reads more like a standalone novel rather than a book in the Grail Series, it does reference some of the even in the different books so it is recommended that you pick this up only after you read the previous books.Thomas of Hookton is searching for another holy relic.

If 1356 is anything to go by then Bernard Cornwell has still got what it takes, and even though this book wasn ’ t perfect, the author himself is still the ing of historical fiction followed closely in my book by Simon Scarrow, author of the Eagle series.

Obviously, the trilogy is set in the year 1356 and deals with the leading up to the Battle of Poitiers, famous for being a battle that I knew absolutely nothing about before coming into this novel, and I was sure to see that Cornwell managed to hook me in and keep me there, as well as providing an educational look into the battle with his vivid descriptions, strong haracters and a masterful understanding of medieval action.Read the Full Review: ttp: //thefoundingfields.com/2013/01/ ....

There may have even been a happy dance involved when I heard he was writing a thir book in the series.

Instead, in the ast two books I have read by him, Azincourt and 1356, I am seeing simply written pulp fiction.In saying this, I do believe that no author is perfect- even when it is the Grand Wizard of Historical Fiction- and since I have liked and loved 11 Cornwell books in the past then surely loathing two now is acceptable to the world of literary yin and yang.I worship the Saxon series.

To find out what Thomas did with these Holy Relics you will need to read the the other ooks.

M no spoilers here.This time round the holy artefact that everybody is in search of is the Sword of St. Peter ( La Malice) Thomas 's old protagonist Cardinal Bessieres believes that with the sword he would be unstoppable in the realising his life 's ambition of becoming Pope.

Above all you feel such sorrow for the mistreatmen of the cow who are unwitting participants in this war of man.These books highlight just how bloody awful war is.
