Lions of the Grail by Tim Hodkinson


It is 1315 AD.

Rotting in prison, condemned as a heretic, Knight Templar Richard Savage is given a chance of reprieve if he returns to his homeland of Ireland.

There is a catch: He must work as a spy for King Edward of England.

Scotland and England are at war. The Scots intend to invade Ireland and someone in Ireland is helping them. Savage returns to a land where he cannot be sure who to trust. Robert Bruce, King of Scotland, is said to possess a mysterious treasure, and many are flocking to his cause. Efficient, brutal killers are on the loose and in the middle of it all is Alys de Logan, Savage's former love who he abandoned to join the Templars, who some say has become a witch.

Amid feasts, tournaments and war, Savage discovers he left more than just memories behind in Ireland. Can he decide whose side he in on, where Bruce's secret treasure is and above all, stay alive? Like a cross between the works of Bernard Cornwell and George RR Martin, yet with its own unique style, Lions of the Grail sets its unique characters against real historical events, but also also weaves in elements from medieval and celtic mythology and literature to this tale of adventure.
