This book is a terrific ending to the Constantinople arc. Cannot recommend it strongly enough to all who like the company of archers series. Consulting online maps and pictures helped me appreciate some elements of the story.
I couldn't put it down, read it all the way through in one day. It's a great book with a surprise ending. I think they ought to make this into a television series. Now I am going to go back and re-read the entire series from the beginning!
Normally I don't read books in a lengthy series; however in this case I have made an exception. This series has held my attention and interest through 20 volumes. The author is a real yarn spinner and keeps each book exciting while keeping the overall theme in place. I find myself eagerly anticipating the next book which will be out late in 2019. It is rare that I will read a fiction book for a second time, but I will probably re-read this whole series. I enjoyed them that much. I highly recommend this series and to get the most from it, start with number one and read forward. I give it a 5+ rating.
A fast action packed adventure. Set in the early thirteenth century this swash buckler of a tale takes the story of the Company Of Archers to Constantinople and its defense against a vastly larger army who are trying to depose its Latin Empress. Love stories and traitorous intrigue make this a fascinating read. Sometimes poor transcription and worse spelling makes the reader have to interpret the text; but that is small price to pay for this rollicking story.
Once again another solid entry into the archer series . If youve not read this series and like historical fiction do yourself a favor and pick up this series . Its a romping stomping good time during the time of the crusades
This book proves that the Archers are beyond clever. The threads of deceit create a web that, at it's center is the culmination of the planning, plotting and adventure we expect from Martin. Loved reading this book, look forward to the next.
Another exciting Archer story with many twists and turns! I have read all the books in this series, some several times. The other books Of Martin are excellent. You can smell the smoke and feel the fear in each book.
