Summary

The Hundred Years War still rages on and the French army thirsts for Thomas Blackstone's blood. Blackstone battles to strengthen Edwards III's claim to the throne and confronts the might of the French army. 

But, when his friend turns assassin, Blackstone is faced with an impossible choice: to save the English prince or sacrifice his son. Will he abandon his sworn oath to protect the future King of England? Or will he protect his family at the cost of the nation?

Another fantastic adventure with Tommy and co.

A really memorable entry into the series. Some great throwbacks to Crecy and other key moments. You can really feel Thomas' mortality in this book and the fact he needs to keep his loin clothe on. But fantastic all the same.

Yet another David Gilman classic

The Master of War series is one of the finest in all historical fiction.
Each character is wonderfully crafted, the protagonist Thomas Blackstone is one of the best characters that I have ever encountered. The depth David Gilman gives to Blackstone and his band of fighting men, is truly amazing. As a reader you feel that you are actually acquainted with each of them.
This book is fast paced and the action is clearly described, there's no blurring of lines. Gilman is the master of telling it true, and you never lose track of the plot; no matter the complexity of the twists and turns. His villains are always given depth of character, this in turn creates a wonderfully balanced story.
Every book by David Gilman just gets better and better, he is a true craftsman, constantly striving to produce breathtaking stories.
