Hawk Quest

Hawk Quest

The year is 1072.

The Normans have captured England. The Turks have captured a Norman knight. And in order to free him, a soldier named Vallon must capture four rare hawks.

On a heart-stopping journey to the far ends of the earth, braving Arctic seas, Viking warlords, and the blood-drenched battlefields, Vallon and his comrades must track down their quarry one by one in a relentless race against time.

The scale is huge. The journey is incredible. The history is real. This is Hawk Quest.

Praise

"Quite simply, Hawk Quest is the best book I've read this year. I loved this book. I wish I'd written it."—Ben Kane
"An 11th-century epic with action to equal the best of Bernard Cornwell. THIS is writing."—Anthony Riches
"Only once in a generation does a first novel emerge which has such power and depth and scope. With Hawk Quest, Robert Lyndon has shown himself a master storyteller of the highest quality. An absorbing, viscerally moving epic that takes the standard historical fare of love, treachery, passion, and redemption and lifts them into a new stratosphere. I got lost in this for days on end, and never wanted to emerge. Outstanding!"—M.C. Scott
"[Hawk Quest] is replete with historically accurate details of medieval warfare... Lyndon is a debut author worth watching."—Library Journal (starred review)
"[An] utterly engrossing historical adventure... For readers who relish high-concept adventure well grounded in historical detail, this remarkably well-orchestrated epic delivers the goods."

Booklist
"The characterizations are phenomenal in Hawk Quest. ... Hawk Quest [is] a thought-provoking and well-written novel. Unquestionably, Hawk Quest is an outstanding debut novel for both Robert Lyndon and Redhook Books."—Daily Nonpareil
