Summary

The next audiobook in the best-selling series, Lord Edward’s Archer.

Captain Gerald has proven himself an unrivalled archer, but now he is married, he longs to enjoy life's simpler pursuits, raising a family and tending his land.

But life on the borderlands brings complications, and King Edward has different ideas for Gerald. Prince Llywelyn of Wales will not toe the line, and once more, Gerald is chosen as royal envoy. He must cross the treacherous Welsh Marches to make strategic allegiances and request Llywelyn bend the knee to the English crown.

When those allegiances fail to protect England from Welsh rebellion, King Edward abandons diplomacy and seizes Welsh land to erect and capture castles, imbuing the landscape with intimidation.

As Gerald assists in this military tug-of-war, his thoughts are back home with his family, where personal vendettas threaten his own fortifications. Can he help wrest power back into English hands before the Welsh mob descends on all he holds dear?

Fans of Bernard Cornwall will relish this invigorating ride, the latest in the bestselling Lord Edward's Archer series.

Was Glad when it ended

The narrator is just so bad. The character might recall the slitting of wounded Welshmen's throats, but the tone is so light, airy and Pollyanna that it just doesn't work. The guy is absolutely tone deaf and it ruins the character, Gerald Warbow.
