Having escaped from Sir Hugh’s deadly clutches, Tristan and his friends have finally reached England with the Holy Grail. Treachery and destruction, however, have beaten them home. The Sheriff of Nottingham has taken over England and the friends have no idea who they can really trust. With the end seems farther from sight than ever. Can Tristan and his friends finish their mission and save England from Sir Hugh and his minions?
A great action-packed adventure filled with danger and friendship. The characters are true to their characters and are well-developed. The plot is well-done and holds the reader’s interest. Readers who like fantasy, adventure, action, and the middle ages will enjoy reading this book. They will, however, have to read the first two in the series to understand what's going on.
