Based in the middle of the fourteenth century, An Archer’s Crusade is a novel of honour, rivalry and treachery. The plot begins in the aftermath of the battle of Eveshan which has seen the rise of a new owner of the manor- Gerald War Bow. However, Gerald’s mind is crippled with uncertainty: he may have won the battle, but has he won the war? In the mist of his uncertainty, he is required by Lord Edward to hunt and extinguish the last sympathisers of Simon de Montfort. As a champion of battle, Gerald is tasked with the protection of Lord Edward while crossing the territory of his enemies. The pressure builds on Gerald’s shoulders as the narrative progresses to ensure the safe and victorious return of his lord.
