Book Description

2 Dec 2010 Wild Hunt (Book 3)

Renard, heir to Ravenstow, is a crusader in Antioch, a place far removed from the cold Welsh Marches of his birth. Summoned home to his ailing father, Renard brings Olwen with him, an exotic dancing girl whose sensuous beauty and wild ways have ensnared him. Yet, in a political match made by their families, Renard is already betrothed to the innocent Elene and he knows he is also returning to the duty of marriage.

Torn between Olwen and Elene, Renard's personal dilemma is set against a background of increasing civil strife as Ranulf of Chester, his greedy neighbour, strives to snatch his lands. When Renard is taken prisoner at the Battle of Lincoln, his fate is placed in the hands of the two women - his former mistress, now in the bed of his deadliest enemy, and his determined yet inexperienced wife, protecting his lands against terrible odds . . .

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 16 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
Having read most of EC books I eagerly awaited this one being the final one in the trilogy..Unfortunately I was diappointed with poor storyline and some characters forgotten about and the reader not quite knowing their outcome! I have learnt now that this one of her earlier novels and perhaps I should have given it a miss.
I found the novel poor in content, quite short and easy to put down where normally her books are a right rivetting read.
All in all I would still recommend some of her later works they are brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Expected 6 Nov 2011
By Hiraethus o Gymru VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As expected, an enjoyable sequel to The Wild Hunt. Elizabeth Chadwick's books are always a pleasure to read because her research into the period is excellent and her narrative is colourful and dramatic. Her battle scenes are superbly addressed and the attention to the weaponry of the time and how it was employed actively engages the reader's imagination. Finally, her characters never fail to please and stimulate the interest to the extent that once begun, it is difficult to put the book down. Highly recommended, but although this stands well alone, having read The Wild Hunt sets the scene and is an additional advantage in that the main characters are already familiar.

In the Twelfth century, to have is not always to hold...

I am a huge fan and avid reader of Elizabeth Chadwick's work, for I truly believe that she is one of the greatest writers of historical fiction. Bringing the medieval era vividly and realistically to life, Chadwick captures the intensity and passion of the times in such meticulous and exacting detail as to delight. With its shimmering gold cover and delicate binding, `the leopard unleashed' is something that certainly stands-out on the bookshelf as something exclusive within its genre.

This is the story of Renard, heir to Ravenstow and his journey from humble crusader to impassioned rival. From Antioch he is summoned home to his ill father, where he is met with political strife and family troubles that concern his betrothed Elene. Renard brought Olwen, an exotic dancer from Antioch and is soon confronted with his duty of marriage to the innocent Elene. Torn between his intense feelings for sensual and erotic Olwen and his expected obligations, little does Renard realize that his fate will soon lie within the hands of those two women...

Taken prisoner at the battle of Lincoln and with his former mistress now in the company of a deadly enemy, Renard pins all hope on his loyal and determined wife Elene who endeavors to protect his lands from Ranulf of Chester. But, Elene is inexperienced and naive and so the future hangs on a knife edge in this turbulent and uncertain time.

Exciting and deeply absorbing this dramatic tale I felt was reminiscent of Ken Follett's "the pillars of the earth" and "world without end", for it encapsulates the harshness and brutality of dangerous times wherein heated rivalry and injustice rule supreme.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good historical yarn. 16 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You know what you're going to get with Elizabeth Chadwick - well researched, well written historical (11th and 12th Century)fiction . This is one of her totally fictional stories (as opposed to her fiction based on factual events/characters). It's a good story and holds your attention until the end (well it held mine anyway). If you like this period of history and you like a good story you'll like this.
