The Outstanding Chivalry Series Continues

Hawkwood’s Sword is book 8 of Cameron’s Chivalry series, and it’s the best yet. In fact, each book in this series is superb. Cameron is a sensational writer and master storyteller.
I can’t wait for Cameron and Audible to release book 9 — Hawkwood’s Sword ends with one heck of a cliffhanger to say the least.
Bravo to Peter Noble for his powerful, masterful 5-star narration.
Highly recommend indeed.

This has become my favorite series.

This book(book 5) in the Chivalry series is probably my favorite entry so far. Heavy on the adventure and self discovery, but I'm going to talk about the series as a whole. I'll freely admit, it's not the best series of all time. Not as action packed, not as profound as some other books, but this one resonates with me like no other. Starting at book 1, you have a kid with talent, with little to no guidance in a hostile world and he learns the hard way. Add in plate armor and historical events and you have the basic premise. A very flawed hero with a true north moral compass, he learns hard lessons and always ends up finding ways to cope and persevere. Whether it be throwing himself into his work, having people rely on him or simply being propped up by his friends. There are so many subtle lessons here, told in a compelling way. I can see this series not being for everybody, tons of French names, Turkish names, names English speakers will have a hard time with, but I implore you to plow through. These books have helped me through hard times and if you can get through the tidal wave of information being thrown at you, they're more than worth it.

Love this Book series

A excellent addition To a already great book series


This book spends more than 3 years of the main characters life almost all of the book is spent in between 1368 and 1372 you don’t get a whole lot in 1381 A little bit at the beginning and a little bit at the end but not much so the story doesn’t progress in the in the present and I’ll takes place in the past

Although I do believe more is going on in the present then you’re led to believe at this time

So if you’re paying attention We’ve got nine years left of story until we catch up to the present day so that’s probably at least three more books before we catch up to the present I would guess

Lovely continuation of Gold’s biography, average delivery.

This has all the same excellent qualities of the previous novels, with the same flat delivery.
