First in a fast-paced Templar Knight adventure series from New York Times-bestselling author Boyd Morrison and expert art historian Beth Morrison.
Ex-communicated knight Gerard Fox is a battle-hardened warrior whose ancestral home was unjustly taken from him. Now, he roams across the known world of Europe looking for work as a man-at-arms. Equipped with only his Damascus-steel sword and war bow, Fox takes out tyrannical and dishonorable men in a land still blighted by the Black Death.
In his ongoing crusade to deliver justice, Fox comes to the aid of Lady Isabel, who is fleeing from her brutal betrothed. But she hasn’t told him the whole story. Isabel is guarding a priceless holy relic. One many men would kill for.
Fox and Isabel soon find they are being chased across the continent and try to evade those who seek the relic. But as more assassins close in, Fox realizes they will stop at nothing to possess the sacred treasure that Isabel has sworn to protect…
Medieval fiction? Count me in! The Lawless Land by Boyd & Beth Morrison is a thrilling historical fiction that was clearly well researched. This feels authentic and real, and that is one of the things I think is very important in historical fiction.
Love the characters. The good guys are definitely good, with flaws and back stories that make them feel real. The bad guys are vile and convincing. I was very invested in the characters and what would happen to them.
Thrilling and action packed, this kept me thoroughly entertained as I read. I love the fight scenes. It was so easy to see the scenes in my head, making me feel as though I was actually there.
Overall, The Lawless Land was an excellent read. I enjoyed the adventure and the action. I loved the medieval time period and the authentic writing. Check it out!
