9781781081617: Hunter of Sherwood: Knight of Shadows

England, 1191. Richard Lionheart has left the realm bankrupt and leaderless in his quest for glory. Only Prince John seems willing to fight back the tide of chaos threatening England - embodied by the traitorous 'Hood.' But John has a secret weapon: Guy of Gisburne, outcast, mercenary, and now knight. His first mission: to intercept the jewel-encrusted skull of John the Baptist, sent by the Templars to Philip, King of France. Gisburne's quest takes him from the Tower of London to the hectic crusader port of Marseilles - and into increasingly bloody encounters with 'The White Devil': the fanatical Templar de Mercheval. Relentlessly pursued back to England, and aided by the beautiful and secretive Melisande, Gisburne battles his way with sword, lance and bow to a bitter confrontation at the Castel de Mercheval. But beyond it - if he survives - lies an even more unpredictable adversary.

About the Author:

Toby Venables is a novelist, screenwriter and lecturer in Film Studies at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. He grew up watching old Universal horror movies when his parents thought he was asleep, reading 2000 AD and obsessing about Beowulf. There was probably a bit more to it, but he can't quite remember what it was. He has since worked as a journalist and magazine editor - launching magazines in Cambridge, Peterborough, Oxford and Bristol - and once orchestrated an elaborate Halloween hoax for which he built and photographed a werewolf. He still works as a freelance copywriter, has been the recipient of a radio advertising award, and in 2001 won the Keats-Shelley Memorial Prize (both possibly due to typing errors). His first novel (for Abaddon) was The Viking Dead - a historical-zombie-SF mashup which has been described as A fantastic mix of history, violence and horror and ludicrous fun.

Review:

'Historical Fantasy has never been such fun! This novel, [is] set during the Robin Hood era of Prince John's rule, Guy of Gisbourne is a knight enlisted to capture the skull of John the Baptist from the French King Philip. Magnificent, action-packed fantasy. This is a fast-paced book that never lets up from its opening pages. The Historical world is rich and chaos-filled, and the brutal sword-fighting and action are an integral part of the story as Guy struggles across to Marseilles and back. Exceptional story, great characters, rich and varied settings, and simply irresistible writing. What more can you ask for from a historical fantasy.' - Morpheus Tales
