Have just started this book by Robert Lyndon.
It's set in 1072, and tells the story of a quest by various characters across Europe, to secure 4 valuable hunting falcons to pay the ransom of a captured knight.
It is sort of similar to TLOTR in style but has great detail in showing the way of life in Medieval England.
There's fighting, blood and gore, sea adventure. I'm up to page 100 and they haven't scratched the surface yet of the epic quest.
Read the blurb on the back and you will be hooked. This would make a top mini series.
Highly recommended by me, which is always good value as I don't waste time on shite books
PS- blame this fucker for stalling the finish of my new comedy... Lol
