My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Apologies it's not fantasy but it has close similarities, being set in medieval times. Very interesting book but faded in the middle. Set mainly in France after Poitiers 1356. The main character William Gold wants nothing more than to become a knight and his route to that goal is set with difficulties. The tale tells of mercenary bands of soldiers making a living after Poitiers and much of it relies on looting and rape. Overall I enjoyed it. I did get a little bored in parts as it did seem to go on but the perspective was interesting and the battle scenes lively.
