Book Description
Thomas of Hookton is one of those archers. When his village is sacked by French raiders, he makes a promise to God: to retrieve the relic stolen from Hookton's church. Escaping his father's ambitions, he becomes a wild youth who delights in the life of an army on the warpath. Driven by his conscience and protected by his fearsome skills, he enters a world where lovers become enemies and enemies become friends, where his only certainty is that somewhere, beyond a horizon smeared with the smoke of fires set by the rampaging English army, a terrible enemy awaits him. This enemy would harness the power of Chistendom's greatest relic: the Grail itself. Here, in the first book of a new series, the quest begins. It leads him through the fields of France, to the village of Crecy where two great armies meet on the hillside to do battle.

    Un libro que da de sí lo que esperaba...un héroe típico con los vaivenes típicos, pero es un libro entretenido y bien narrado como suelen ser los de Bernard Cornwell...veremos cómo siguen los dos volúmenes que continúan la historia....

    Primer libro de las aventuras del arquero Thomas Hookton, sencillamente genial, me encanta como Cornwell describe la epoca.

    A mi gusto, el autor se debería de haber quedado en este primer libro, cuyo final encuentro redondo respecto al resto del libro.

    En los siguientes dos libros aunque se sigue disfrutando de su lectura parece que la trama esta menos trabajada.
