Product description

Review

'Like a punch from a mailed fist, MASTER OF WAR gives a true taste of the Hundred Years War. It is a gripping chronicle of pitched battle, treachery and cruelty. The stench and harshness of medieval life is ever present' ROBERT FABBRI, bestselling author of the Vespasian series.

'A very original and real picture of the time, no gloss of modern sensibility is added to this fantastic tale of personal growth in bloody times' Parmenion Books.

About the Author

David Gilman enjoyed many careers, including firefighter, soldier and photographer, before turning to writing full time. He is an award-winning author and screenwriter.

Like the preceding books in this series, the combination of historical accuracy and rollicking action is brilliant. In this, the third of the series, there's even more of both. The complex politics of these turbulent times is woven into the plot extremely skilfully and, although I'm sure that the eyes of many will glaze over at the national and familial links that so clouded this era in history, for me it just made everything seem so much more 'real'.

This time, there's even more action and Blackstone and his crew hardly have time to sleep between bouts of cutting a swathe through hordes of opponents. Also as before, the English archer is lauded here although, after a while, the almost superhuman prowess of some of these archers becomes a little tiresome and the phrase ' a bodkin tipped yard of ash' gets a bit overused.

Although there aren't too many surprises in the plot and you don't have to be genius to guess who the mystery assassin really is, there are some deaths that shock a little as, by then, the reader will have decided that these characters are too important to kill off. But die they do!

The end of the book seems to be a little rushed, as though this episode had been finished now and David Gilman just wanted to set his hero up for the next book. So, spoiler alert, there will be another book and that means that Blackstone must return. Minor grumbles aside, I'll be buying it.l

I had this as a kindle and an audio and unlike many audio sync books it was easy to follow in both media.

Couldn't put them down, read the three books one after the other and I'm looking forward to the next instalment.
