Book Description

Henry III is dead. His son, Edward Longshanks is on his way back from crusade to claim the crown and impose his iron will on a weakened country.
The nobles of North Wales are nervous and grow frustrated at the inaction of their own leader and make a daring pact to replace him with a figurehead to unite the warring factions against the English Prince.

In the south, two young men attempt to rebuild their lives after a terrifying ordeal in Acre. Desperate to heal old wounds and build for the future, they try to rebuild the family forge but the appearance of an old enemy tears them apart once more and forces them onto different paths.

Whilst the life of an outlaw beckons for one, the other finds himself on an extraordinary quest to find an unknown land, achieve an unlikely outcome and secure an uncertain future.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read medieval I , I eagerly awaited medieval II and I have not been disappointed , yet again a good story line and I couldn't put it down , my only disappointment now is I have to wait for the 3 rd installment . I would have no hesitation in recommending this book and indeed any of the other books kevin ashman has written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever and different 27 Jun. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An ingenious and exciting adventure, generally well-written. Mr Ashman has taken the trouble to minimize the errors which spoiled previous novels (though most reviewers didn't seem to notice them, or didn't want to mention them), and the spelling mistakes are few enough to not warrant the deduction of a star (though I can't not mention our old friend a 'hoard of infidels'!). There are still Unnecessary Capital Letters throughout, and he insists on using the royal honorific 'Sire' when he shouldn't, but I tried to ignore that, and let the story carry me along. I look forward to the third volume.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent read 26 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great follow up to the first Medieval book. Full of interesting story lines, familiar characters and who knew the Welsh were so 'influential' in the course of history!
Another great book from Kevin Ashman which allows you to relax unwind and 'escape' for a little while

3.0 out of 5 stars In the shadow of kings 17 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but you need to read the first book before this one to understand the basis and origin of the saga. The story is well written is exiting and intriguing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic by Kevin Ashman 10 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a superb sequel to Medieval, Blood of the Cross. I loved the first book and the author continued his wonderful portrayal of the two main characters very well. His characters are real and as he takes you along their journey, you feel you know them well.
I'm an avid historical novel reader and Mr Ashman never disappoints.
I would recommend Mr Ashman to anyone looking for a new author.
I eagerly await Medieval III.
