Taking a break from Sherlock Holmes, the author has written an action-packed adventure story set in the fourteenth century. The title refers to a band of English mercenaries fighting in France during this tumultuous era, and the book is true to other chivalric tales of the day. Narrator Nick Rawlinson’s buttery English accent sets the perfect tone for this story. His voice is crystal clear, and his accents are impeccable. Rawlinson is able to ease into different dialects within the same conversation while maintaining exceptional diction and pacing. Conan Doyle fans will be especially pleased with this change of pace, and newcomers will delight in a well-told adventure. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
