Summary
From New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell, the first book in the Grail Series—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.



A brutal raid on the quiet coastal English village of Hookton in 1342 leaves but one survivor: a young archer named Thomas. On this terrible dawn, his purpose becomes clear—to recover a stolen sacred relic and pursue to the ends of the earth the murderous black-clad knight bearing a blue-and-yellow standard, a journey that leads him to the courageous rescue of a beautiful French woman, and sets him on his ultimate quest: the search for the Holy Grail.

Bernard Cornwell has a unique gift in relating the social-political and environmental conditions that have been part of Britain's most famous battles. Mixed around the historical events are clever images of life from various perspectives. And then the quest for relics is always a plus to any story. Mr. Cornwell adds just the right amount of mystery to keep you on the edge of your seat. The narrator Tim Pigott-Smith does an outstanding job. He does a variety of British and French accents, and keeps them all straight. He helps bring the story alive, and is a pleasure to listen too.
