reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This sequel to THE ARCHER'S TALE stands well alone, though the listener may want to know what went before. Filled with graphic battles, the epic novel is more an armament catalogue than a romantic interlude or historic description. Colin McPhillamy takes on Scots, English, French, and every layer of society with accents as cutting-edge as the swords. English archer Thomas of Hookton loses his woman, his friends, and pretty nearly his life in his search for the Holy Grail, which he's looking to use as a weapon. This book is part of a series and best read in sequence. B.H.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine

        October 14, 2002
        The Hundred Years War is the bloody backdrop to this second volume of Cornwell's new series about the search for the Holy Grail (after The Archer's Tale). Like its predecessor, the novel follows Thomas of Hookton, an archer in the English army in the 14th century. Thomas is the bastard son of a recently murdered priest whose family claims it once possessed the Holy Grail. No one is certain the Holy Grail actually exists, but many believe it does, and kings are waging war and committing murder in the search for it. Thomas has a book of his father's, written in Latin and Hebrew, which might reveal clues to the Grail's location, if only he could make head or tails of it. But others are aware of the book's existence, and Thomas's motley enemies and rivals—including Guy Vexille, the French cousin who murdered his father; Bernard de Taillebourg, a Dominican Inquisitor who loves his job; and Sir Geoffrey Carr, a treacherous English knight—are all hot on his trail. The beleaguered young hero must also fight mercenaries, Scots and Frenchmen in gruesome, long-drawn-out battles. Cornwell is meticulous about historical facts and period detail, and his descriptions of butchery with arrow, mace and battleaxe are nothing if not convincing. As expected, the book culminates with battlefield slaughter on an epic scale. Cornwell fans will eat this up. (Dec. 1)Forecast:Cornwell's Richard Sharpe novels are justly popular, and this new series looks headed for similar success, backed by a strong marketing campaign.
