Publisher's Summary

1072 AD. The Normans have captured England. The Turks have captured a Norman knight. And in order to free him, a Frank warrior named Vallon must capture four rare white hawks. In the company of a Sicilian scholar and an English falconer, Vallon sets off a heart-stopping odyssey to the far ends of the earth - from Greenland to Russia to Constantinople, across raging Arctic seas and blood-drenched battlefields.

Braving Viking warlords, vengeful Normans, and the unforgiving elements, Vallon and his comrades must track down their quarry one by one in a relentless race against time. Ric Jerrom reads Robert Lyndon’s epic historical adventure packed with visceral combat, marvellous period detail, and gripping suspense.

    "Entertaining enough, but a bit predictable."

    Hawk Quest is entertaining enough. It has some good historical and location detail. I finished it!

    However, it is very predictable and it always seemed pretty obvious what was going to happen next. Also, some of the dialogue is truely dire.

    Hawk Quest will not go down in history as classic literature, but makes a good listen and has enough interest to keep you going.

    Story
    "Superb full of action and adventure."

    I found this book by chance and have to say I loved it.
    It is full of action, drama, ferociousness, tension and passion. It is not the type I would usually go for but I am so glad I did. The narration was amazing and you could imagine each
    character from the voice of the narrator. The description of the journey across land and sea made you feel as though you were travelling with them and the telling of Wayland's search for the gyrfalcons left me at times with butterflies!
    I have already downloaded the next book and cannot wait to start to follow the journey of Vallon, Wayland and Hero.
    If you like action and adventure with lots of blood and gore then don't hesitate to listen to this
    book.
    One of my all time favourites!!

    "Fantastic book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hawk Quest to be better than the print version?

    I had not read the book but the audio was the best book I had listened to for ages.Top notch story telling.


    What other book might you compare Hawk Quest to, and why?

    Not sure.


    What about Ric Jerrom’s performance did you like?

    Very good in deed.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It would have been but I only have my iPod set to play in my work van.


    Any additional comments?

    I will look out for any further titles by this author.

    "Good book well read."

    Robert Lyndon has crafted an enthralling adventure starting in norman Britain, passing through friendly and hostile Viking territories, and culminating in the Middle East on a multi-facetted quest for freedom, riches and knowledge.



    Ric Jerrom read with consistent pronunciation and impeccable timing and pace to keep his audience engaged in the current and anticipating the next event in the unfolding story.
