The prowess and loyalty of the great knight William Marshal have been rewarded with the hand in marriage of Isabelle de Clare. William has weathered the difficult years of King Richard's absence on crusade and is currently serving him on campaign in Normandy. But the stability William and Isabelle have enjoyed comes crashing down as Richard dies and his brother John becomes king.

Rebellion stirs throughout the Angevin domains, and William and Isabelle distance themselves in Ireland. As the situation escalates, William steers an increasingly precarious path that will lead him, eventually, to the rule of a country in desperate straits, with Isabelle walking with him every step of the way.

    " I was really disappointed with this book. I read about 100 pages and just got bored. It is a shame as I enjoyed the two prior. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Kingslayer | 2/11/2014

    " I love anything by Elizabeth Chadwick, she has a real talent for making the english history come alive. Perhaps if my history classes had been more like a Chadwick novel I would have done better! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phillip Walker | 2/10/2014

    " I thought a little of it was not as easy a read as the 2nd in the series. (I just found out today there is another book in the series - before The Greatest Knight. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi | 1/28/2014

    " I truly enjoyed this book, but didn't want it to end! Because William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke is my ancestor I knew when he died. At the beginning of each chapter I didn't want to see the date, as they kept creeping closer to his death, which is, of course, the end of the book. This is a wonderful historical with enough history, romance, and battle to keep everyone happy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/18/2014

    " I enjoyed this descriptive story of "The Marshall" . He was a bigger than life character in real life and this book brings that to life for the reader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 1/13/2014

    " The final book about William Marshal and his years in service to the crown of England. I was so emotionally invested in the characters by the end of this novel that I sat down and cried for their loss. How embarassing - but says a lot about this powerful 2 part series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katrina | 12/25/2013

    " The story itself was good and interesting, but overall I found this book was slow and boring at times. I skimmed quite a bit in the battle descriptions and focused mainly on the dialog. "

    " A struggle to read even though the subject material is so interesting. William Marshal, his family and the times he lived in are fascinating, but the depiction of the main characters and their relationship are at times extremely annoying. Too many "knowing looks" etc. "
