#BookReview: The Lawless Land (Tales of the Lawless Land #1) by Boyd Morrison & Beth Morrison

Synopsis: First in a fast-paced Templar Knight adventure series from New York Times-bestselling author Boyd Morrison and expert art historian Beth Morrison.

Canterbury, 1351.

Excommunicated knight Gerard Fox is a battle-hardened warrior whose ancestral home was unjustly taken from him. Now, he roams across the known world of Europe looking for work as a man-at-arms. Equipped with only his Damascus-steel sword and war bow, Fox takes out tyrannical and dishonorable men in a land still blighted by the Black Death.

In his ongoing crusade to deliver justice, Fox comes to the aid of Lady Isabel, who is fleeing from her brutal betrothed. But she hasn't told him the whole story. Isabel is guarding a priceless holy relic. One many men would kill for.

Fox and Isabel soon find they are being chased across the continent and try to evade those who seek the relic. But as more assassins close in, Fox realizes they will stop at nothing to possess the sacred treasure that Isabel has sworn to protect...


Rating: 5 Stars
My Review: Just wow! This was a spectacular start to a new series.  I loved how this one started out and how it ended and I need book two now!  This was full of historical medieval action and fun! I devoured every secret and all of the adventures.  The characters take this story to a whole new level and I could not put it down until the very last page. 



"[An] exceptional series launch. . . .  The authors make splendid use of such medieval-plot standbys as a castle with secret tunnels, plague-riddled vagabonds, a grand tournament, a priceless manuscript, and duplicitous churchmen. . . . Historical fiction fans will eagerly await the couple’s further adventures." —
