The Legend of the Greatest Knight Lives On

William Marshal's skill with a sword and loyalty to his word have earned him the company of kings, the lands of a magnate, and the hand of Isabelle de Clare, one of England's wealthiest heiresses. But he is thrust back into the chaos of court when King Richard dies. Vindictive King John clashes with William, claims the family lands for the Crown—and takes two of the Marshal sons hostage. The conflict between obeying his king and rebelling over the royal injustices threatens the very heart of William and Isabelle's family. Fiercely intelligent and courageous, fearing for the man and marriage that light her life, Isabelle plunges with her husband down a precarious path that will lead William to more power than he ever expected.

"Everyone who has raved about Elizabeth Chadwick as an author of historical novels is right." —Devourer of Books on The Greatest Knight

"Elizabeth Chadwick is a gifted novelist and a dedicated researcher; it doesn't get any better than that." —Sharon Kay Penman

I liked this one a lot -- King John is horrifically real and the poignant end to William and Isabelle's relationship is beautifully written. Checked out the story of William and Isabelle's daughter Mahelt.

Am really addicted to this series.
