#BookReview: Shadow of the Hawk (Master of War, #7) by @davidgilmanuk

Synopsis: Winter, 1364.

The King is dead.

Defeated on the field of Poitiers, Jean Le Bon, King of France, honoured his treaty with England until his death. His son and heir, Charles V, has no intention of doing the same. War is coming and the predators are circling.

Sir Thomas Blackstone, Edward III's Master of War, has been tasked with securing Brittany for England. In the throes of battle, he rescues a young boy, sole witness to the final living breaths of the Queen of Castile. The secret the boy carries is a spark deadly enough to ignite conflict on a new front – a front the English cannot afford to fight on.

So Blackstone is ordered south to Castile, across the mountains to shepherd Don Pedro, King of Castile, to safety. Accompanied only by a small detachment of his men and a band of Moorish cavalrymen loyal to the king, every step takes Blackstone further into uncertain territory, deeper into an unyielding snare.

For the Master of War, the shadow of death is always present.


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: I know I was told that this could be read as a stand alone but I couldn't do it. I sat down and speed read the first six books in this series and I am HOOKED!! I devoured this one in two days and I could not put it down.  This world that the author has created is golden and I need another one now! This was an all absorbing book that will suck you in and make you fall for it hard.  The characters were perfect and so was the story.  Seriously I have nothing bad to say about this one.  


"Page-turning and gritty." —Daily Mail

"Heart-pounding action." —Times
