Becky Bookworm Book Review: Grail Knight by Angus Donald

Grail Knight (The Outlaw Chronicles, #5)Grail Knight by Angus Donald

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Adventure is one word that sums up this latest tale of a certain infamous thiefs life. It is certainly the most heart wrenching of them all which was a nice surprise considering all the other experiences we have shared as a reader of  these tales. This particular set of adventures does follow neatly on from Warlord in Robin's hungry pursuit of the Holy Grail which later proves to be exactly what Alan A Dale needs to save his beloved wife from Nur's curse. Team that up with an ideal of revenge against a certain mad mastermind and you have a classic band of warriors facing always uneven odds that makes it a truly gripping adventure. Each chapter left me hooked and gasping like a freshly caught trout. The end of Part 1 was particularly shocking - a true OMG moment I have never experienced and Angus just kept the shocks coming. Even right till the final few chapters where his true writing genius is shown. Again his has surpassed himself and yet another impressive sequel that will demand another highly impressive sequel. If you havent started this series I recommend it. If you have finished Warlord then seek out Grail Knight as if its the Grail itself. You will not ever be disappointed. Cant wait for the Iron Castle to arrive and see what has become of dear Alan and the fearless Robin.
