Review by

This is the second in the Grail Quest series. I read the first some time ago but had trouble finding this book. Even though there was a gap between the books they flowed together nicely. This is a enjoyable read about knights, archers and men at arms battling to the death and seeking fortune during the 100 Years War between England and France that focuses on an archer who is on a quest to find the grail that is part of his family's history.
