HISTORICAL FICTION REVIEW: Outlaw Series 5: Grail Knight - Angus Donald

Release Date: 01/08/13
Publisher:  Sphere


A home burned When past crimes resurface, Sir Alan Dale, loyal lieutenant of the Earl of Locksley - better known as the murderous thief Robin Hood - faces terrible vengeance at the hands of those that he and his master have wronged. A family threatened With his beloved wife on her deathbed, Sir Alan must seek salvation by following Robin into the lair of their enemy, the mysterious leader of a band of renegade Templars, on the trail of the most precious object in the world: the Holy Grail. Only a miracle can save them As vengeful Templars hound Robin and his men across England and France, deals done with mighty lords turn to bloody battle. The companions must find the Cup of Christ before they face certain destruction. Myth, mayhem and masterly storytelling meet in the astounding new epic from the bestselling author of Outlaw and Holy Warrior


The latest title from Angus Donald and following the adventures of Will alongside his liege lord Robin Hood, has been an adventure from day one. Not only has this series gone from strength to strength, the action is hard, the villains have gotten harder to challenge the characters as they grow and when added to an author who loves to not only tell a story but really brings the reader into it to keep them marching alongside the characters all round gives you a series that’s just too good to put down. Magical.
