Summary

A huge, exciting historical adventure epic in the bestselling tradition of Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden and Robyn Young

Hawk Quest Summary

Hawk Quest by Robert Lyndon

1072 AD.

The Normans have captured England. The Turks have captured a Norman knight.
And in order to free him, a Frank warrior named Vallon must capture four rare hawks.

In the company of a Sicilian scholar and an English falconer, Vallon sets off a heart-stopping odyssey to the far ends of the earth - from Greenland to Russia to Constantinople, across raging Arctic seas and blood-drenched battlefields. Braving Viking warlords, vengeful Normans, and the unforgiving elements, Vallon and his comrades must track down their quarry one by one in a relentless race against time.

Ten years in the making, Hawk Quest is high adventure in the grand tradition of Bernard Cornwell and Robyn Young, an epic story packed with visceral combat, marvellous period detail, and gripping suspense.

The scale is huge.
The journey is incredible.
The history is real.
This is - Hawk Quest

Hawk Quest Reviews

An entertaining debut and one that more than holds its own against Cornwell et al * TLS *
Quite simply, Hawk Quest is the best book I've read this year. I loved this book. I wish I'd written it * Ben Kane *
Lyndon's story carries readers from one vivid scene to the next with great style * Sunday Times *
An 11th-century epic with action to equal the best of Bernard Cornwell. THIS is writing * Anthony Riches *
This magnificent novel has all the breathtaking cruelties and valour a lover of historical adventure and romance can wish for * Historical Novels Review *
A swooping adventure story of epic proportions * Choice *
Only once in a generation does a first novel emerge which has such power and depth and scope. With Hawk Quest, Robert Lyndon has shown himself a master storyteller of the highest quality. An absorbing, viscerally moving epic that takes the standard historical fare of love, treachery, passion, and redemption and lifts them into a new stratosphere. I got lost in this for days on end, and never wanted to emerge. Outstanding! * M.C. Scott *
