This sequel to THE ARCHER'S TALE stands well alone, though the listener may want to know what went before. Filled with graphic battles, the epic novel is more an armament catalogue than a romantic interlude or historic description. Colin McPhillamy takes on Scots, English, French, and every layer of society with accents as cutting-edge as the swords. English archer Thomas of Hookton loses his woman, his friends, and pretty nearly his life in his search for the Holy Grail, which he's looking to use as a weapon. This book is part of a series and best read in sequence. B.H.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
