Book Description

MORGARTEN (Book 2 of The Forest Knights Duology)

This action-packed conclusion to The Forest Knights series picks up where ALTDORF left off.

A small force of peasants from the forest regions surrounding Lake Lucerne, rise up against their Austrian overlords in the 14th century. Outnumbered seven-to-one by the battle-hardened Habsburg army, they have little hope.

Young Noll Melchthal has managed to take the Altdorf fortress away from Leopold of Habsburg with a daring moonlight raid. But his army consists of boys and old men, with only enough swords to arm half of them. How long can he hope to hold off the combined might of the Habsburgs and the elite troops of the Holy Roman Empire? He needs help, and the only people he can turn to are an ex-Hospitaller captain and a Priestess of the Weave.

MORGARTEN is a novel of 77,000 words.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sequel to Altdorf the Forest Knights .. 20 Dec. 2012
By Cheryl M-M TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again Swift has delivered a great reading experience. This sequel to ALTDORF (The Forest Knights) picks up where we left the main characters at the end of book one.
Set in medieval times with a great balance between fiction and historical fact, this book certainly doesn't disappoint when it comes to keeping the reader interested and involved in the story.
It was intrigueing to see the way the romantic triangle evolved, only to come to sudden halt, due to certain visions and misinterpreted dreams. Going by the ending it must mean there is a third part on the way, I can only hope so.
Kudos to the author for Pirmin's special ending or closure. It was sincere and warm without being overly dramatic.
As always the tale flowed smoothly with solid characters and realistic scenarios. The story links back once or twice to remind us exactly where and who the Swyzer children were and the adults they have become. Bonded by mutual pain, suffering and warfare. They still stand as one.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read 16 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the first in the series I was eager to read this Book 2. It picks up exactly where Book 1 left off. A thoroughly enjoyable read, however where the author finishes does this mean the end of the series or will he be able to carry on a series with a lot of potential? To understand this you will obviously have to read the book and decide for yourself.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
even though Swift introduced a supernatural element, it didn,t take away the historical struggle of the Swiss peoples agains the Austrian occupiers. Like the first volume, I could not put it down.

A really good read - believable characters, based on factual events, that held my attention from beginning to end. Can't wait to read the prequels.
