Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This mixes Robin Hood, the Knights Templar and the Holy Grail together in an epic historical adventure that for all its infeasibility is a cut above the norm. With a terrific pace and all the right buttons pushed; love, war, relationships, honour, betrayal, ambition, despair, hate, forgiveness and generosity, it makes for gripping reading. A lengthy book at 534 pages but I would happily have read another 500-odd. First rate.

If you like Angus Donald you might also like to read books by Ben Kane, Conn Iggulden and Harry Sidebottom.

Synopsis

Grail Knight by Angus Donald

A home burned When past crimes resurface, Sir Alan Dale, loyal lieutenant of the Earl of Locksley - better known as the murderous thief Robin Hood - faces terrible vengeance at the hands of those that he and his master have wronged. A family threatened With his beloved wife on her deathbed, Sir Alan must seek salvation by following Robin into the lair of their enemy, the mysterious leader of a band of renegade Templars, on the trail of the most precious object in the world: the Holy Grail. Only a miracle can save them As vengeful Templars hound Robin and his men across England and France, deals done with mighty lords turn to bloody battle. The companions must find the Cup of Christ before they face certain destruction. Myth, mayhem and masterly storytelling meet in the astounding new epic from the bestselling author of Outlaw and Holy Warrior

Reviews

Angus Donald delivers rip-roaring novels that fling you headlong into the dark undercurrents of the medieval world, written in a taut and compelling style and seething with skulduggery. A master of adventure. Robyn Young
