The 100 Years War...

by AleGator on Dec 10, 2009

I enjoyed reading this book. Cornwell writes battle scenes better than any author I've read. His vivid descriptions make me glad I did not have to live through this the 100-Years War. It was hard to read the scenes when the protagonist, Thomas of Hookton, was tortured by an inquisitor of the church. And his miraculous healing was a little too quick to be believed. But overall it was a very engaging read.


Good read, but familiar for Cornwell fans

by PeterM on May 14, 2008

Although I haven't read every book in Cornwell's bibliography, I have read his "Last Kingdom" series, his original "Sharpe" series, and now this one. They've all been highly entertaining reads, and Cornwell's strengths continue to be fine attention to historical detail and thrilling action scenes. One doesn't go to him for in-depth character development, and that's just okay with me. Fans of historical fiction with a heavy bent on action should definitely check out any of Cornwell's series. I would recommend the "Sharpe" series first, but no harm would be done by picking a shorter series, like this one, "The Grail Quest." Highly recommended.


The Heretic

by Jekyll on Feb 28, 2008

This is the third book in a series called " The Grail Quest " . All three books are very good reads and Bernard Cornwell is an exceptional historical novelist. I would recommend any of his books.
