This review is from: The Archer's Tale (Grail Quest) (Paperback)
This book is truely wonderful introduction into the grail quest series. Harlequin (aka The Archer's Tale) kickstarts the trilogy with a bang, introducing a typical Cornwallesque Heroic character (strong, impoverished and with tragedy in his past) who is then followed through a series of adventures both at home and in the middle of the hundred year's war in France.
If you like the Sharpe series then you'll love this too. A different period of history, but equally well explored, with historical facts and battles being interwoven into a story based around an intricate plot of familial revenge and power. If you're buying this then seriously consider buying Vagabond and Heretic (the rest of the grail quest trillogy) because once you get into the story you won't want to have to wait for the next installment...
