Bernard Cornwell x 3 pb's s/w (book)


When his village is sacked by French raiders, Thomas makes a promise to God: to retrieve the relic stolen from their church. Escaping his father's ambitions, he becomes a wild youth who delights in the life of an army on the warpath. Driven by his conscience and protected by his fearsome skills, he enters a world where lovers become enemies and enemies become friends, where his only certainty is that somewhere, beyond the horizon, a terrible enemy awaits him....
