This review is from: The Falcons Of Montabard (Paperback)
The Falcons of Montabard is set in the time of the crusades around 1120AD. The hero of the book is one Sabin Fitz Simon whose exploits lead tohis family strongly suggesting he join the holy crusades under thewatchful eye of a huge knight known as Strongfist who is also taking hisdaughter Annais with him. Stongfist warns Sabin at the outset in nouncertain terms that if he even as looks at Annais in an unbecoming way hewould meet with the wrath of his sword.
As the story unfolds Sabin andAnnais are forced together in unexpected and tragic circumstances whichboth must chose whether they are to respect the last wishes of Annais'shusband for the sake of their own personal agendas.
This is the second Elizabeth Chadwick's book I have read and from thestart I was captivated with the rich tapestry of medieval life which leadsthe reader into a world that is so detailed you believe you are there. Thecharacters are so vivid that by the end of the book you believe that theywere people that actually know and love.
This is a book that has everything a reader could possibly want for a goodread.
