Publisher's Summary

France, 1356. Ten years ago, the greatest army in Christendom was slaughtered at Crecy when Thomas Blackstone and his fellow archers stood their ground and rained death on the steel-clad might of French chivalry. Blackstone left that squalid field a knight. Now, Blackstone commands a war band and has carved out a small fiefdom in northern France.

But the wounds of war still bleed and a traitor has given the King of France the means to destroy first his family, and then the English knight himself. As the traitor's net tightens, so the French King's army draws in. Blackstone will stand and fight - in pitched battle and in single combat. He will defy his friends, his family, and his king. He may yet defy death, but he can't defy his destiny as Blackstone: Master of War.

So Good

Historical fiction at it’s finest. An extraordinary story and a performance together as nothing less than perfection - a duo that cannot be missed.

Great series

This is my second time through the series, and it’s up there amongst the best of the era in terms of Historical Fiction. I initially thought the storyline was a little played as it’s a (peasant/orphan/from the ranks) that rises up to become a man of rank and privilege in the English army. But the author made it work, and managed to do so without giving him an Irish sidekick.
