While reading this book, I kept thinking of something Sir Walter Scott wrote: “Oh, what tangled web we weave…when first we practice to deceive” because Ms. Newcomb does this brilliantly. She weaves plot after plot with turns and twists. She weaves plots of marriage, secret weapon building, secret food storage, spies, espionage, traitors and loyal leaders and followers but, who can Henry de Grey trust.
Henry wants to trust his father however, Lord Edward de Grey allows the travelers with wagons of goods to spend the night at Greyton. And, Edward wants to see his son married to Elle Weston. Never mind that Henry loves another and Elle does not love Henry.
So, where are the other characters we were introduced to in Men of the Cross: Stephan, Robin, Little John, Allen and Marian. Oh, they are there among those plots, twists and turns. Other characters include Henry’s sister, Bea; Stephan l’Aigle’s brother, Gilbert; Tuck; Much Miller; Sarah; Robin’s father, William Carpenter; Robin and Marian’s son, Robert; Robin’s friend Milo; Elle’s brother, Edric Weston; Will Marshal; Will Scaflock and others.
After reading Ms. Newcomb's First Volume of Battle Scars, I stated that Men of the Cross had blockbuster potential. Now that I have finished the Second Volume, For King and Country, I believe that more so than ever. A two or three hour movie would not do Battle Scars justice, especially since Volume Three is in the works. The movie would have to be in parts, similar to the Hunger Games, or done as a mini-series for television. Hey, either way works for me. I just hope that movie producers, directors, assistants, etc., reads these books and say..."WOW" and march forth.
In the meantime, go purchase these books and decide for yourself.
