4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but not his best, 6 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 1356 (The Grail Quest Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
If you enjoy the genre and have never read Bernard Cornwell (there must still be a few such folk) you will love this book.So why only 4 stars? By the standards of any other author all his books are 5 star. But by his own standards this is only a 3 'cornwell' star book.I have compromised by giving it 4 amazon stars. Although 1356 can be read 'stand alone'its best to read the grail quest books first .Not only are they better books they help with characterisation - the author has economised a bit with characters that may already be known to some readers.As always Bernard Cornwell is the master on battle scenes but he is repetitive at times.He fully explains the use of a pavise (a large shield to protect crossbow men while they reload)3 times and partially describes it at least twice more.(You can search such things on kindle!)
