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

About the Author

Robert Lyndon has been a falconer since boyhood. A keen student of history, he was intrigued by accounts of hawks being used as ransoms during the Middle Ages. Some of the scenes in Hawk Quest were inspired by Lyndon's own experiences as a falconer, climber and traveller in remote places. He has written many books and articles on history and exploration. A Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, he lives in Dorset.

Reviews

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 * A swooping adventure story of epic proportions * Choice * This magnificent novel has all the breathtaking cruelties and valour a lover of historical adventure and romance can wish for * Historical Novels Review * An 11th-century epic with action to equal the best of Bernard Cornwell. THIS is writing * Anthony Riches * Lyndon's story carries readers from one vivid scene to the next with great style * Sunday Times * 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 * An entertaining debut and one that more than holds its own against Cornwell et al * TLS *
