Thomas along with his wife and comrades travel around the French countryside looking for La Malice so Thomas can hide it away from the rest of the world as he believes that these relics cause more damage than good.

The story is excellent and Bernard Cornwell does have a flair for making you feel like you were there at the battle.

You can sense that a lot of research has been carried out for this book and his passion for this period of history does show through.

The characters are descriptive from the repulsive Count whose wife was being protected by Thomas to the lovable Irish rouge student Keane to the evil priest Marchant who used his Calade to horrifying consequences.

A great read and highly enjoyable. I hope the series continues. With reports that it was simply a rehash of 'Azincourt', yet another chasing holy relics story and being not too impressed with some of his more recent works I was prepared to be disappointed.

I was not. Firstly this is not a rehash of 'Azincourt' the story lines have nothing in common. Secondly whilst it does have the story line of a holy relic which binds all the characters together, directly or indirectly, this is just one plot of many.

Cornwell has been very clever, whilst this relic links the beginning and end, at times it almost disappears into he background and becomes secondary to other storylines.

It does not in anyway take the story into the genre of fantasy. The novel is well paced, has plenty of action, good characterisation, a good number of storylines and a little comedy thrown in to boot.

As usual research by Cornwell is first class - down to how do you get human waste out of a medieval city?

I mentioned at the start I had been a little disappointed with some of his recent novels but things are turning, firstly with 'Death of Kings' - very good - and now '' - in my opinion his best.

And Cornwell's best is THE best. I like Cornwell's novels with the exception of the Sharpe series-the period those novels are set in is of no interest to me and I certainly enjoyed this one.

The only small problem that I had was that I was not aware it's so strongly tied into the Grail Quest series, which I have yet to read.

This book features Thomas of Hookton, the main character of that series, so I find it quite bizarre that it's not sold as being a 4th book in the series.

I would have certainly appreciated the book more, had I known some of the background that the story references from the 3 books in the Grail series.

I will certainly buy the three books in the series, I would have appreciated reading them in the logical order, though!

A word for the author-if you think this book stands alone, then it is too strongly tied into a series it's supposed to only share a couple of characters with.

If you don't think it does, and in fact you feel it's part of the series, then please advise your sales people that they need to be clearly presented as such-it would definitely help.

This book has all the elements of a classic Cornwell historical action novel; strong characters, exciting settings, fluent prose and engaging dialogue.

The history is believable and accurate, with some literary expansion, and the story keeps the reader interested. However, the plot never quite gets going with the compelling momentum I'd normally associate with this author.

The story seems to hinge on an historical artefact, which ultimately is not inherent to the plot. This is a little confusing, as are the complexities of early medieval European history which, whilst accurately related, fix the reader's attention and retard the flow of the book.

It is still an enjoyable and informative read. Jonny Cox: author of [ This is the fourth book about the English archer Thomas Hookton.

Set in France in the mid 14th century it follows his adventures whilst fighting with the Black Prince. As is the norm with Bernard Cornwall although there is some poetic license the bulk of the story is based on histororical fact.

The embellishment mearly helps the reader to get to know the main characters as 'real people' and helps to move the plot along at a fast pace.

Although the fourth book in the series the storyline is gripping and only slightly repetative. A major plus with Bernard Cornwall's books is that he always takes a chapter at the end of the book to explain the basic historical facts and his interpritation of them.

All in all a great read and a terrific way of brushing up on your history. Pity History lessons were never as interesting at school!

If you enjoy the genre and have never read Bernard Cornwell there must still be a few such folk you will love this book. So why only 4 stars?

By the standards of any other author all his books are 5 star. But by his own standards this is only a 3 'cornwell' star book.

I have compromised by giving it 4 amazon stars. Although can be read 'stand alone'its best to read the grail quest books first.

Not only are they better books they help with characterisation - the author has economised a bit with characters that may already be known to some readers.

As always Bernard Cornwell is the master on battle scenes but he is repetitive at times. He fully explains the use of a pavise a large shield to protect crossbow men while they reload 3 times and partially describes it at least twice more.

You can search such things on kindle! Thomas of Hookton is probably my favourite of all of Bernard Cornwell's characters, so I was excited to read about him again in While can be read as a stand alone novel it is technically part of the Grail Quest series.

The Grail Quest is by far my favourite series, mainly because I just love this time of history and feel that Bernard Cornwell writes it in such a rich and compelling way that I cant put the books down no matter how hard I try.

The battles, while graphic, are exciting, and even though there are many of them throughout the novel, each is just as interesting as the next.

If you have not picked up a Bernard Cornwell novel then I suggest you start with this series. You wont be disappointed.

You cannot keep a good man down, or so Bernard Cornwell is always telling us - or should that be, writing us. Thomas of Hookton first appeared in the Grail Trilogy, a real Cornwell tour de force as the main character searched for the grail.

In this one he is looking for the Sword of St Peter, not a relic I was familiar with, but apparently it was the sword Peter drew to defend Christ and Christ cursed it.

Anyway, the only reason for four stars is the book doesn't really cover the search for the relic in the same way the Grail Trilogy did with the grail.

A lot of old characters are back, and it is nice to back in territory that you know and loved. A fitting end to the Thomas Hookton story.

Until BC decides there is more to tell! I'm an absolute sucker for fiction set within medieval historical context and when the story is well researched and well written - as this is I bought this book having read, and loved, Azincourt Cornwell manages to vividly describe 14th Century life, complete with all its hardships, whilst producing a well paced fictional tale involving the main characters.

The action is set mainly during the build up to the battle of Poitiers but culminates with the actual battle and its aftermath.

The battle scenes are well described and correspond well to actual events as I understand them. Haven't read any of Cornwell's other 'Thomas of Hookton' books but will now seek them out on the strength of this.

I like novels with a historical story line and this is one of the best I've read recently. The story has depth and the characters are well rounded, These were rough times to be born into and age span not long for many people, I think we would find it hard to live as they did.

Pretty ruthless times when to beat an opponent in battle was regarded extremely highly. We are taken thru a good few battles, all of them bloody and very graphic which I felt was necessary to keep it correct, The story itself has a number of strands and these tie together nicely at the end..

So I took myself in hand which is an idiom I've always found vaguely naughty, most likely because of my brain's permanent dwelling place in a nice and comfy gutter , gave myself a stern talking to, and soldiered on with , suffering only the occasional eye spasm in the process.

I also had a rough beginning with this book as for the longest time I couldn't identify with or be sympathetic to any of the characters.

Eventually, though, I warmed up to Thomas and his band, especially Brother Michael and the Irishman, Keane the latter mainly due to his adoption of a couple of wolfhounds away from the Frenchmen who were hunting down him and Thomas; as an animal lover, it was a particularly satisfying scene.

The story itself is interesting yet oddly forgettable. Revolving around a mythical sword said to be the sword of Saint Peter, a sword said to grant whoever bears it certain victory over his foes, both the French and English army have sent scouts to find it in order to aid their endeavors.

If the year of the book's title doesn't hold any significance for you, it was in that year the Battle of Poitiers took place, which was the second major engagement of the Hundred Years' War.

So each side believes they are in the right and that this sword, la Malice, will bring God's wrath down upon their enemies.

In between battle scenes and personal dramas revolving around Thomas and his band we watch as this sword gets shuffled around from place to place and from person to person as it falls into the hands of those who would hide it and those who would abuse it.

Eventually it finds itself in the possession of Sculley, a wild Scotsman marginally under the control of the Lord of Douglas, on the side of King Jean.

After a brief but bloody sword fight between Sculley and Thomas, the fate of la Malice was something of an anticlimax. Maybe that was the point, but it just seemed rather disappointing.

And that was the overall sensation I took away from my reading experience. It just felt as though the book was missing something, as though I was only getting part of the story.

Perhaps it's due to the fact that it is number four in a series. Perhaps it's better read as part of a whole, when all the pieces fit together into a larger, more detailed picture.

I also have to disagree with the blurb on the cover from George R. Cornwell writes vivid, bloody, stirring scenes, to be sure, but they're nowhere near as atmospheric and breath-taking as Iggulden's.

That's not to say Cornwell's writing is flawed. I've read his Warlord Chronicles , which tackled the story of King Arthur, and like those books, is a cracking good read.

The dialogue is fast-paced, accessible without being overly-anachronistic, the story moves along and keeps your attention, doling out information in just the right amount without slowing down the action, and he allows the characters to develop as the story moves along so that by the end, though they may not be complex creatures, they're far from cardboard cutouts.

Basically, they're villains because they're villains and nothing more. Thomas is the most three-dimensional character of all; he's obviously one of the good 'uns, yet he does shady, even downright criminal things, he has conflicting emotions between what he's doing and what he should be doing—basically he behaves like a human being, especially one who's often placed between a rock and a hard place and must choose the lesser of two evils in order to move.

That said, I suppose the goal of most writers is for you, as the reader, to empathize with the good guys and Cornwell certainly accomplishes that.

Or at least for me he did. Every time one of the characters found themselves in a perilous situation, I suffered along with them, heart beating rapidly, palms sweating, lips gnawed raw as my eyes zoomed across the page, reading as fast as I could in the hope that the character would soon find an escape.

So, yeah, despite some flaws and a slow start, in the end I would recommend this book as a good read.

However, I do believe it would've been even better had I gotten to it after first reading the three books that came before it.

I need to read these other books first! I think not. In fact, doing so would encourage more sales, in my not-so-humble opinion: First of all, people wouldn't get pissed off about picking up a book in the middle of a series, and secondly, in my experience, people like to buy in bulk, so when they find the first clearly labeled book in a series, they tend to pick up the second one at the same time.

Oh the excruciating pain of it. I have been such a fan of Cornwell for so long that I feel guilt and embarrassment at my reaction to this book.

I had really liked the Grail Quest series and Thomas of Hookton. I had been so excited to discover that after all those years there was to be a fourth instalment.

There may have even been a happy dance involved when I heard he was writing a fourth book in the Nobody look as I try and slip this review through my updates and sweep it under the rug forever.

There may have even been a happy dance involved when I heard he was writing a fourth book in the series. But this was not the instalment I had expected and it appears I wasted good energy on that happy dance.

To be honest, I do not think I am Cornwell's target audience anymore. I am not seeing the poetry and prose that I once did in his books.

Instead, in the last two books I have read by him, Azincourt and , 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. It is the series that spurred my love of the historical fiction genre. Book seven of that series is due for release and upon reading an excerpt of that book, The Pagan Lord, I see that same poetic style of writing that brought me to the Bernard Cornwell band wagon.

It really seemed too light hearted, almost slapstick at times. It was more like a caper than a historical fiction novel, but had a drawn out battle thrown in at the end.

I did like the book, but never felt engaged like I have in other Cornwells. It just didn't match up with the previous books in the Thomas of Hookton series.

View 1 comment. Ok I have to admit this book had become background noise. I think I am out of the loop having not read the previous grail series.

Sep 24, J. Ashman rated it it was amazing. Listened to this on Audible. I read the original Thomas of Hookton trilogy years ago, but it didn't take long to get into this which could be read as a one off and feel like I'd not been away from Thomas and The Hundred Years War.

Great characters on both sides, excellent battle scenes and plenty of smiles and grimaces both! Oct 31, Jason Golomb rated it liked it Shelves: adventure , medieval , fiction , war , action , historical-fiction.

Bernard Cornwell is known for his meticulously detailed historical fiction, and his incredibly vivid and life like battle-realism.

This book has a "They were mercenaries and they called themselves the Hellequin, the devil's beloved, and they boasted that they could not be defeated because their souls had already been sent to hell.

This book has all of that and more, but it's missing something that drives the success of his other stories: a robustly solid plot.

The book is positioned as a stand-alone novel set within the world and characters of "Archer's Tale", "Vagabond" and "Heretic", most recently published in Cornwell provides plenty of explanation and backstory to provide the historical context for the characters and their relationships, but what the story doesn't have, and what made "The Last Kingdom" so amazing, for example, is its epic scale and breadth.

The story behind "" would make a fine TV movie. The plot revolves around a quest for a sword of historic and religious significance; supposedly, the holder of 'La Malice' will be the supreme ruler.

Once that stage is set, the story is propelled by the different organizations chasing after this weapon of great power: Hookton, known as La Batard, is seeking the object for the English.

A rather nefarious Cardinal who carries some serious Hookton baggage from the previous novels, is out for its power to propel him to the Papal throne.

Surrounding this core story are the subplots of kidnapped heroines, conniving Lords, and a reasonably well-developed cast of secondary characters that provide a platform for Cornwell's terrific skills in writing dialogue.

Unfortunately, where the entirety of "" feels itself like a subplot of the larger "Grail" suite, the actual subplots of this novel feel even less significant.

As a fun battle-adventure in middle ages Europe, I strongly recommend this book. While it doesn't go much beyond that, I got a strong enough sniff of Cornwells' Hookton mythology that I plan on digging into "Archer's Tale", the first in the series, very soon.

I received this book as part of the Amazon Vine program. A question. Who writes historical fiction better than Bernard Cornwell?

If you have an answer please let me know. The years is , what a surprise, and William Prince of Wales is causing havoc in France and Thomas of Hookton, now Sir Thomas, is in the thick of things.

This is the 4th book in the Grail Quest series. In the books 1, 2, 3 Thomas has been a busy boy. So far he has found the Lance of St.

George's and the Holy Grail, no less. To find out what Thomas did with these Holy Relics you wil A question.

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

Thomas stops at nothing to prevent Bessieres from getting the sword. On top of all this The Lord of Douglas, a Scottish nobleman, who is in France and aligned to the French throne wants to do nothing but kill the English.

The descriptions of the battles make you feel that you are right in the midst of it all. You feel the horror, you see the blood and gore.

Above all you feel such sorrow for the plight of the horses who are unwitting participants in this war of man.

These books highlight just how bloody awful war is. The common man is, in reality, nothing but cannon fodder. Who cares that hundred die?

I think they cared. These books are great yarns but the actual history is meticulously researched. I just wish that when I was going to school Bernard Cornwell was writing my text books.

Sep 14, Milo rated it it was amazing Shelves: bestreleases , notablereleases , historical-fiction. My favourite historical fiction author writes another strong entry in a great setting and delivers a great read that was one of my favourite novels of And the best part is about this book is that it can be read without reading the previous novels in the series as well — like I found out whilst I was reading it.

View 2 comments. Oct 27, Susan Johnson rated it it was amazing. Bernard Cornwell's strength is making a historical period come alive.

He not only talks about the battle but the food they eat, the clothes they wear, the way they talk and other details that make the period real and like you are actually there.

It's a very rare gift. Lord Labrouillade has a beautiful wife who hates being married to him and runs off with another man.

Who wouldn't hate being married to him? He's a fat, gross, cruel, unpleasant, coward of a man. The count enjoys a good meal. For hi Bernard Cornwell's strength is making a historical period come alive.

For his dinner he had a venison pastry, a roasted goose, a ham drenched in lavender honey and small birds cooked in red wine.

As he ate "the yellow fat dribbled down his chins. As Hookton tries to rectify the situation war is breaking out in France as the English Black Prince ravages the countryside.

Hookton is on his own quest to find the fabled la Malice, St. Peter's sword. He has disposed of the Holy Grail in a manner he feels keeps it safe from humans and he wants the same for the sword.

There is a whole cast of characters that are interesting and quite believable. My favorite was the dowager Countess Malbuisson, an 82 year old, looking for a little excitement at the end of her life.

There was Roland Verrec, a knight who believes strongly in chivalry. Who can forget Sculley, a fierce Scottish warrior?

This shows the strength of Cornwell whose bit players could all have a novel of their own. Of course, where Cornwell excels are the battle scenes.

You can actually feel yourselves in the heat of the fight. This is my favorite line, "Enemy could smell enemy, smell the shit as bowels emptied in terror, smell the wine and ale on their breath, smell the blood that slicked the grass.

I sat up until am to finish the book. I just couldn't find a place to be able to stop and put the book down. I just had to find out what happened next.

I highly recommend this book Jan 14, happy rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction-historical. I thought this was vintage Cornwell.

A well researched telling of the Battle of Poitiers - the second great English Victory of the Yrs War and the campaign that led up to it.

Mr Cornwell has now writen novels on all three of the great English victories: Crecy, Agincourt and now Poitiers.

As usual Mr. Cornwell writes vivid battle scenes. In addition to the combat, this has a little bit of everything - the battle scenes, wayward wife, chivalric knights, evil churchmen, early use of gunpowder, a I thought this was vintage Cornwell.

In addition to the combat, this has a little bit of everything - the battle scenes, wayward wife, chivalric knights, evil churchmen, early use of gunpowder, and the search for a magical relic.

In between there an adulterous wife to be returned to her husband, a knight so caught up in Chivalary he vow to stay a virgin and falls in love with said wife, a wicked Cardinal who is searching for the Sword of St.

Peter, of which it is said that whomever posesses it will triumph, so he can become the next Pope. Thomas of Hookton's liege Lord has also heard of the sword and sends him to find it.

While he is searching, he recieves word to join the Prince of Wale's army. It is at Poitiers that everything come together.

On the down side, Mr. Cornwell introduces two new characters that originally seem to have importance and forgets about them.

I liked both the Micheal, the unethusiastic propesctive dr and monk as well as Keane, the Irish Divinity student.

They both abandon their studies to go with Thomas. Jan 07, Steven Walle rated it really liked it.

His army, consisting of around 4, knights, 4, mounted cavalry, 3, archers, and 1, infantry , avoided fortified locations as they plundered undefended towns.

On hearing that the French army, led by King Jean II , had crossed the Loire to challenge him, Edward headed south as quickly as his slow-moving baggage train would allow.

Moving at greater speed, the French intercepted the English 3 miles 5 km east of Poitiers. Forced into a battle he did not want, Edward chose his position carefully, a slope protected on the left by a marsh and stream while in front his narrow line was covered by a hedge with only a single gap in it through which four knights might ride abreast.

On his exposed right flank he placed his wagons. Although the site was ideal, Edward was obviously concerned about the coming battle and, in the early morning of 19 September, attempted to slip away.

The French spotted his move and began their attack, forcing Edward to return quickly. Edward lined up his archers behind the hedge and dismounted all his knights apart from a small reserve force on his right flank.

The larger French force was broken into four divisions, or battles, each around 10, men. Apart from the knights of the first battle, these, too, were all dismounted, in the mistaken idea that this was the way to engage the English; instead, it deprived them of mobility and surprise.

The first French battle rode toward the English and attempted to storm through the gap in the hedge. As they reached the gap, the English archers opened fire, knocking the knights off their horses only for them to be finished off in fierce, hand-to-hand fighting.

French crossbowmen lined up behind their knights had no opportunity to open fire. The second French battle, led by the Dauphin, then marched up the slope toward the English, encountering heavy fire before engaging the English in heavy fighting.

The French almost broke through but were repulsed when Edward brought up his reserves. As the French prepared for a third attack, the English archers retrieved arrows from bodies in order to replenish their supplies.

With just one battle left, the French king himself advanced toward the English. Edward responded by ordering his entire army to attack, his small reserve cavalry force sent around the French flank to attack them in the rear.

All of the characters are believable and have depth and complexity along with an equally complex plot.

This isn't a predictable read. You may know the history which makes the overall outcome predictable but what happens to the fictional characters has entertaining twists and turns.

As I've said in other reviews of Cornwell's work, he gives nothing away for free to his characters. They work for everything and lose a great deal in the process of achieving every gain.

It's not easy to guess who will live, who will die, who will be maimed or disfigured and who's inner demons will positively or negatively affect an outcome.

Truly enjoyable and inexpensive entertainment. I highly recommend this book and the entire series.

You should start at the beginning though. Thus the king of France and the English Prince of Wales both wanted it, as well as certain ambitious churchmen who would use it to become Pope.

And two excommunicants sent to find it. Adventure follows interesting encounter follows escape follows lovely scenery, follows battle, till we are finally pleased as well as a well-written plot and scintillating characters can make us.

In this heady cocktail of a novel with military History everything is nicely mixed in proportion. Heroic good fellows ,pretty ladies with spirit,evil priests,damsels in distress ,chevaliers suffering from idefix,a sacred sword,British Lords winning French Lords losing and soldiers fighting wholesome battles with decapitating axes,brain smashing maces,swords that split faces, lances that disembowel bellies,on foot and on horseback and most of all the English Archers demonstrate for the third and final time the superiority of the English and Welsh longbow that humiliated the flower of the French Knighthood once again.

Agincourt although it happened one century later has already been written by B. And is very good,so is unfortunately the final one,no more, The author is very knowledgable about the long bow and the wars of the era and gives an entertaining narrative with descriptions that demonstrate significant scholarly and deep research.

The Black Prince is there charming and manly and warlike ,not like the French King who is a Bon viveur eating of gold plates and preferring the soft life with entertainments as those French are anyway.

The culmination of the story is of course the battle of Poitiers written in a fascinating impressionistic way that gives the reader the participating feeling.

It was a great battle and B. Is a worthy Bard of the epic. Sir Thomas Hookton, the great bowman leader,once again saves fair ladies,kills evil men and fights the good fight for England ,Saint George,and some considerable plunder that will hopefully secure him ale and venison in his old age.

Overall a very entertaining story that makes us regret that only Crecy. Poitiers and Agincourt were the Great English Victories of those times because otherwise we would have more novels of the kind by the same author ,that I have to admit,I follow in every new novel and never regretted.

This story takes place about ten years after the events of Heretic. Thomas, now a knighted veteran, is a man of some wealth and fame. He leads his own company of archers and men at arms.

Though he serves England, he operates independently in the countryside of Gascony. This story has a lot of the tropes we have come to expect in a Cornwell story.

There are of course desperate fights and escapes from perilous situations. And then there are evil men.

The most malefic men in the book are a Cardinal of the church and his henchmen. They are almost matched in their vileness by the Count of Labrouillade, who is a pig of a man.

As in all the Thomas of Hookton stories, there is also a holy relic. In this story, it is la Malice, a sword that was supposedly used by Peter to defend Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Cornwell hangs this story on the struggle to possess la Malice. The story reaches its climax at the Battle of Poitiers in Cornwell shows us the battle by involving Thomas and his men in desperate and bloody fighting at various crucial points.

While not as good in my opinion as the Grail Quest trilogy, is quite entertaining, and it was nice to read another Thomas of Hookton story.

See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. I have been an avid reader of Bernard Cornwell's books for years and I think that I have read the majority of them.

The most memorable of these has definitely been those chronicling the life of Thomas of Hookton fictitious character.

The book as depicted is set in the years surrounding during the one hundred year war with France, with the eventual battle of Poiters.

I feel that others have reviewed this book fantastically and given many for and against reviews that I can only accept and I believe any reader will glean that this book.

For those who have read the Grail quest series this book is very much standalone but that series will help give the reader the prior sense of a form of closeness and need for Thomas to succeed.

Please read my review and other reviews and know that this book is fantastic and unfortunately I read this in two days Thank you for your feedback.

Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. One person found this helpful. I have no qualms in giving an honest review which includes the good the bad and the ugly where appropriate.

Leads to the battle of Durham stopping the scots with a very small army. Once again showing the might of the archer and why English armies dominated the battle field for over years.

Real dates, historical characters and locations. A really interesting book that I will read again. Even people who are not into history will enjoy this book.

You have to admire Bernard Cornwell. Thomas of Hookton on a quest and bashing heads. And then Cornwell starts to weave his magic.

The characters, battles, sense of place and the way in which reader is drawn into the narrative adds a dusting of originality despite the formulaic rehashing of earlier themes.

I was carried to the end on a well-armoured destrier and thoroughly enjoyed the book, just as I enjoyed the linking trilogy. Anyone familiar with Bernard Cornwell's books will already know that he is a master story-teller.

They will also know that he does his homework; any historical story he tells will be accurate in its known background facts.

Having read his account of Agincourt I waited with impatience for the publication of '', and I was not disappointed.

There is the usual mix of fictional characters some of whom we have met before and a typical Cornwell plot. There is the usual struggle against villains and of course a romantic element too.

To be honest, the predictability of that is the reason I've given 4 stars not 5. However no-one writes action better that Cornwell and the final battle at Poitiers is brilliantly told, and from a slightly different perspective too.

As always I found it a compulsive read and was struck again by the vicious inhumanity of the period, where human suffering was of no regard and no consequence.

Yet again I understand too why the French hold very little affection for the English. We don't deserve any! I whole-heartedly recommend as a 'cracking good read'.

If you also have a feel for that period of history, so much the better. Buy and enjoy. Load more international reviews. Set against the violence of the medieval age is a story which features Thomas Hookton and is the 3rd instalment in the "Grail Series".

The story is about the quest to find "la malice" which is supposed to be the sword that St Peter used whilst trying to protect Jesus Christ on that fateful day when he was arrested and ended up being crucified.

The story makes no bones about the Catholic church's corrupt and venal nature of some of its representatives. The story takes place in France where Edward the Black Prince son of Edward the III is ravaging France to try and regain the lost territories that former kings have lost Gascony is the only provence left at this time.

He has been ravaging the French countryside and has fought a successful battle at Crecy. The French king Jean is portrayed as weak and indecisive at first but braver later on.

Thomas along with his wife and comrades travel around the French countryside looking for La Malice so Thomas can hide it away from the rest of the world as he believes that these relics cause more damage than good.

The story is excellent and Bernard Cornwell does have a flair for making you feel like you were there at the battle.

You can sense that a lot of research has been carried out for this book and his passion for this period of history does show through.

The characters are descriptive from the repulsive Count whose wife was being protected by Thomas to the lovable Irish rouge student Keane to the evil priest Marchant who used his Calade to horrifying consequences.

A great read and highly enjoyable. I hope the series continues. With reports that it was simply a rehash of 'Azincourt', yet another chasing holy relics story and being not too impressed with some of his more recent works I was prepared to be disappointed.

I was not. Firstly this is not a rehash of 'Azincourt' the story lines have nothing in common. Secondly whilst it does have the story line of a holy relic which binds all the characters together, directly or indirectly, this is just one plot of many.

Cornwell has been very clever, whilst this relic links the beginning and end, at times it almost disappears into he background and becomes secondary to other storylines.

It does not in anyway take the story into the genre of fantasy. The novel is well paced, has plenty of action, good characterisation, a good number of storylines and a little comedy thrown in to boot.

As usual research by Cornwell is first class - down to how do you get human waste out of a medieval city?

I mentioned at the start I had been a little disappointed with some of his recent novels but things are turning, firstly with 'Death of Kings' - very good - and now '' - in my opinion his best.

And Cornwell's best is THE best. I like Cornwell's novels with the exception of the Sharpe series-the period those novels are set in is of no interest to me and I certainly enjoyed this one.

The only small problem that I had was that I was not aware it's so strongly tied into the Grail Quest series, which I have yet to read.

This book features Thomas of Hookton, the main character of that series, so I find it quite bizarre that it's not sold as being a 4th book in the series.

I would have certainly appreciated the book more, had I known some of the background that the story references from the 3 books in the Grail series.

I will certainly buy the three books in the series, I would have appreciated reading them in the logical order, though!

A word for the author-if you think this book stands alone, then it is too strongly tied into a series it's supposed to only share a couple of characters with.

If you don't think it does, and in fact you feel it's part of the series, then please advise your sales people that they need to be clearly presented as such-it would definitely help.

This book has all the elements of a classic Cornwell historical action novel; strong characters, exciting settings, fluent prose and engaging dialogue.

The history is believable and accurate, with some literary expansion, and the story keeps the reader interested.

However, the plot never quite gets going with the compelling momentum I'd normally associate with this author. The story seems to hinge on an historical artefact, which ultimately is not inherent to the plot.

This is a little confusing, as are the complexities of early medieval European history which, whilst accurately related, fix the reader's attention and retard the flow of the book.

It is still an enjoyable and informative read. Jonny Cox: author of [ This is the fourth book about the English archer Thomas Hookton.

Set in France in the mid 14th century it follows his adventures whilst fighting with the Black Prince. As is the norm with Bernard Cornwall although there is some poetic license the bulk of the story is based on histororical fact.
