An epic historical saga steeped in myth and legend, "Heretic brings history to life with the wonderful characters and heart-stopping battle scenes that have made Bernard Cornwell a "New York Times bestselling novelist.

Thomas of Hookton is a young man but already a seasoned veteran of King Edward's army. His fearlessness and uncanny prowess with the longbow make him a natural leader in what will be remembered as the Hundred Years' War. But the dangers on the battlefield are small compared to those of his true quest -- a hunt for a mysterious relic rumored to be the Holy Grail. Accompanied by a small but able band of soldiers, Thomas travels to his ancestral home, only to find it ensnared in a murderous struggle for possession of the Grail. But it is the arrival of a mortal foe -- and the rumored discovery of the Grail itself -- that forces Thomas to make a choice of historic consequence.

From the Publisher:
Having spent three years fighting in the Hundred Years War, young archer Thomas of Hookton continues his search for the Holy Grail but instead discovers that his homeland has been torn by deadly rivalries, religious conflicts, and the black plague. (Historical Fiction)

Annotation:
The third volume of Bernard Cornwell's Grail Quest series begins in 1347, when an archer named Thomas, who has long sought the legendary Holy Grail, travels with a group of soldiers to his father's ancestral land to take possession of a castle there--hoping in the process to capture his cousin Guy, who caused Thomas's father's death. The ensuing battles and intrigues pit Thomas against not only the vile Guy but the power of the Church--in particular, a crooked bishop who is also seeking the Grail.
