Publisher's Summary

Thirteenth century. Wales and England. To young Gruffyd, life has been unkind. Eking out a meagre living with his father, he has learned very quickly how to look after himself in the hostile borderlands. His father, an archer, has taught him well, and at 17 Gruffyd is a keen and able bowman. Young, loyal and skilled, it’s not long before Gruffyd finds himself following in his father’s footsteps, working as an archer in the bordering castle. But tragedy strikes when his lord commits a devastating deed, and Gruffyd is forced to make a life altering decision. This is the story of a young archer’s riotous journey from avenging outlaw to merchant’s bodyguard to, finally, the captain of archers for the heir to the throne.

Well told story and superb narration but.....

But I am getting more than a little weary of the superhero qualities granted the English archer protagonists and his fellow band of brothers in so many historical fiction works these days. A little more realism would be appreciated. I enjoy superhuman feats as much as anyone but you know what they say about too much of a good thing. A little more Shakespeare and a little less Marvel or DC would make for e better reading, in "my book." Otherwise, I cannot complain because the character descriptions, fight scenes and overall plot development are outstanding, as is the flawless narration!

I enjoyed listening to Gerald Warbow's story...

I enjoy reading historical fiction that brings a period of history to life. Griff Hosker, Lord Edward’s Archer, kept my interested. I really like the telling of Gerald Warbow’s story. I did find the author lacking in descriptive details and narration, but I really enjoyed his understanding of horses (coursers, rounceys, etc), bows, strategy, castles and much more of the time. Some reviews feel his protagonist is too strong, but I find that was the time. The long bow was a game changer for Medieval warfare. Before the long bow, knights were tanks and extremely hard to stop. At the time, many knights didn’t understand and thought archers were a dishonorable way to fight. I would really have liked to see more character development. I like that all his characters have descriptive names, but there backstory is limited. I really enjoyed the narrator Marston York. I wish he could have done the sequel King in Waiting, which Owen Front was the Narrator. The other narrator changed the feel of the story. I enjoyed this book and many others by Griff Hosker.

Fast Paced

Warbow is a great character and the plot, poor outlaw archer makes good, clips along apace. The narration is excellent and draws the reader in. Throughly enjoyed it.

Good story

Remembering who is who with old English naming style takes a while to get used to but it does not distract from the story line.
