It is the year 1219. George Courtenay and the Company of Archers have just served as mercenaries and helped the Latin Empire based in Constantinople defeat the invading Greeks and Venetians. The surviving archers have been paid handsomely for their services by the Latin Empress. But the wants of man are insatiable and the compact of the Company on which all the archers made their marks requires them to revenge their casualties. That is all the justification the archers need to tell whatever lies and take whatever actions are necessary to relieve the Venetians of some of their coins - and while doing so, hopefully, see that the Venetian losses are blamed on the French.
The on-going saga of Cornwall’s The Company of Archers is set in dangerous and gritty medieval England during a time of great upheaval throughout Britain—with dissident barons periodically rising against their kings, the Saracens lashing out against the Christians in the Holy Land for breaking the truce by starting another crusade, and the Moorish pirates from the city states of the Barbary Coast fighting with each other and everyone else for control of the Mediterranean.
This is British and English historical fiction at its action-packed best. It will appeal to readers who enjoy books such as George R. R. Martin’s The Game of Thrones, George MacDonald Fraser’s Flashman, and authors such as Bernard Cornwell, Dan Brown, Jeffrey Archer, C.S. Forester, Griff Hosker, Peter Darman, and Jerry Auteri. The author’s books in the saga can be found by searching Amazon, Google, Goodreads, or Bing for "Martin Archer stories."
