From New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell, now available in paperback—the sequel to THE ARCHER’S TALE from New York Times bestseller Bernard Cornwell -- the spellbinding tale of a young man, a fearless archer, who sets out wanting to avenge his family’s honor and winds up on a quest for the Holy Grail.

In 1347, a year of conflict and unrest, Thomas of Hookton returns to England to pursue the Holy Grail. Among the flames of the Hundred Years War, a sinister enemy awaits the fabled archer and mercenary soldier: a bloodthirsty Dominican Inquisitor who also seeks Christendom's most holy relic. But neither the horrors of the battlefield nor sadistic torture at the Inquisitor's hands can turn Thomas from his sworn mission. And his thirst for vengeance will never be quenched while the villainous black rider who destroyed everything he loved still lives.

From internationally acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell comes the spellbinding second chapter in his Grail Quest—the majestic epic adventure of duty, war, and destiny that began with The Archer's Tale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooked on Cornwell's Books I can't quit reading his books. I just love the historical context, his characters and the battle scenes are incredible. I highly recommend the Saxon Tales and the Grail Quest series.
