Vagabond by Bernard Cornwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This historical novel still burns pretty brightly, just like the Hundred Year's War it depicts.
What a nasty time. It makes me thankful that we're not quite THERE yet.
Thomas continues his adventure in gross poverty and murder in an appropriately low style, joining armies all over the place to shine as the wonderful archer that he is. We see a lot of England this time and I really appreciated the battles with the Scotts. Oh, and hearing "The English" become a substitute for all rapists, brigands, and assholes was also great. It turned the term into a general-purpose curse word. :)
Solid continuation. Just a hit of Grail stuff, good buddy-building, and endless war.
