Description

New York Times best-selling author Bernard Cornwell, hailed by Booklists "the master of martial fiction," penned the acclaimed Saxon Tales. With 1356, Cornwell brings Thomas of Hookton (from the Grail Quest series) into an exciting new adventure. It's September 19, 1356, and the English and French armies are waging the historic Battle of Poitiers. With the English clearly outnumbered, it will take a masterful strategy to earn what may be the most decisive and unlikely victory of the Hundred Years' War.

Professional reviews

"In this stand-alone novel set during the Hundred Years' War, Thomas of Hookton, hero of Cornwell's Grail Quest trilogy, returns with his band of mercenaries in pursuit of la malis--the sword of Saint Peter--a holy relic said to bestow great power. Naturally, others are also in pursuit and are determined to win the sword at any cost. Jack Hawkins delivers a stunning performance of this dramatic novel of political intrigue and military battle. Throughout, he effortlessly distinguishes characters from all over Western Europe through various accents. Hawkins's thoughtful reading reveals the emotions of the characters, enhancing their portrayals. His performance is full of energy during Cornwell's signature battle scenes, offering the listener a visceral experience of war. A.S. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
