Publisher's Summary

John is a prince without prospect of a crown. As the youngest son of Henry II, he has long borne the hated nickname "Lackland." When warring tribes and an ambitious Anglo-Norman lord threaten Henry's reign in Ireland, John believes his time has finally come. Henry is dispatching him there with a mighty force to impose order.

Yet it is a thwarted young man who arrives on the troubled isle. John has not been granted its kingship - he is merely the Lord of Ireland, destined never to escape his father's shadow. Unknown to John, Henry has also sent his right-hand man, Sir Benedict Palmer, to root out the traitors he fears are working to steal the land from him.

But Palmer is horrified when John disregards Henry's orders and embarks on a campaign of bloodshed that could destroy the kingdom. Now Palmer has to battle the increasingly powerful Lord of Ireland. Power, in John's hands, is a murderous force - and he is only just beginning to wield it.

good story... not as many facts

this series has been great and I'm enjoying it greatly. I was a bit underwhelmed by the total fabrication of John's grab for a crown in Ireland. but none the less the story was gripping and very entertaining.

love this series

This is the third book in the series and hope there will be more. I love the writing style. The narrator is excellent. I would probably listen to anything read by him.

good read

historically well written and captures the medieval atmosphere. Irish names however could do with more research and pronunciation could be greatly improved.

The black knight

Read trilogy and found it compelling and entertaining. Some parts distressing but I believe a great account of life & ways in those times.
