Publisher's Summary

Amid the carnage of the 100 Years War - the bloodiest conflict in medieval history - a young English archer confronts his destiny....

England, 1346: For Thomas Blackstone, the choice is easy - dance on the end of a rope for a murder he did not commit, or take up his war bow and join the king's invasion.

As he fights his way across northern France, Blackstone learns the brutal lessons of war - from the terror and confusion of his first taste of combat, to the savage realities of siege warfare.

Blackstone will brave the terrors of the High Alps in winter, face the Black Prince in tournament, confront the bloody anarchy of a popular revolt, and emerge from the Battle of Crecy as a knight.

He may yet defy death but he can't defy his destiny: Master of War.

Collected in a single volume for the first time, the first three novels in the epic Master of War series, comprising of: Master of War, Defiant unto Death, and Gate of the Dead.

Exciting, adventurous historical fiction

If you like medieval historical fiction then you’ll love these books! I am a big fan of historical fiction novels and can be a tough critic when it comes down to it but I throughly enjoyed these. I had never heard of this series or this author when I decided to give these books a try but I’m glad I did. The story is captivating, exciting, thrilling, well written and I will for sure be listening to the rest of the books in the series.

Excellent Historical Fiction

I thoroughly enjoyed all three of these books in the boxed set., and found the author’s approach to character development and story to be believable and well constructed. It describes the toughness and brutality of this period of history, yet adds moments of humor and compassion. You won’t be disappointed.
