9781611090369: The Silver Falcon

Eleven-year-old William yearns for the life of a falconer—training the magnificent birds of prey for the favored sport of medieval England’s nobility. But in the boy’s clubfoot his mother sees a sign from the gods: like the legendary Hephaestus of ancient mythology, William is bound to wield a blacksmith’s hammer. So his future lies in the smoky foundries of a swordmaker rather than the rolling fields of a falcon master.

Then fate plays its hand: William rescues the wounded bird of King Henry himself, gains favor with the grateful monarch, and at last sees his deepest desire within reach. But with his new life as apprentice falconer at a nobleman’s castle begins a tumultuous coming-of-age. The years to come will bring triumph and tragedy, friendship and treachery, truest love and most brutal loss. Yet through it all, he will never stop battling—for justice, joy, and the chance to soar skyward in spirit beside his beloved falcons.

About the Author:

Born in 1964, Katia Fox grew up in Germany and southern France, and started her career as an interpreter and translator. After the birth of her third child, she turned her attention to the English Middle Ages and started to research blacksmithing. That research inspired The Copper Sign, the first installment in her captivating trilogy set in medieval England. She lives with two of her three children, splitting her time between Provence and a small town near Frankfurt. She also visits England as often as possible to continue her research. The Silver Falcon is her second novel.

Aubrey Botsford has previously translated novels by Yasmina Khadra and Enrico Remmert. He lives in London.

Book Description Amazon Publishing, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Despite his mother s insistence, young William knows he is destined not to toil with a swordsmith s hammer in his hand, but rather to stride the open country with a falcon on his fist. And when he rescues a magnificent bird of prey belonging to King Henry himself, the boy finds in His Majesty s favor a golden opportunity. Neither the stigma of a clubfoot nor the powerful influence of prophecy will keep him from fleeing the smoky smithy to run the open fields.in the shadow of the sky s winged masters. But his journey will be a tumultuous one, marked in equal measure by triumph and torment. He will meet a lifelong friend and make a deadly enemy, be hunted through the wilderness and go hungry on city streets. And as he travels from the huts of the lowly to the castles of the highborn, growing from callow youth to experience-scarred manhood, he will fight -- with honor for what is right and with fury against wrongs no man should suffer.
