"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."
"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
