Heretic by Bernard Cornwell

Heretic (The Grail Quest, Book 3) by Bernard Cornwell
The eagerly anticipated follow-up to the number one bestseller Vagabond,
this is the third instalment in Bernard Cornwell’s Grail Quest series. In
1347 the English capture Calais and the war with France is suspended by a
truce. But for Thomas of Hookton, the hero of Harlequin and Vagabond, there
is no end to the fighting. He is pursuing the grail, the most sacred of
Christendom’s relics, and is sent to his ancestral homeland, Gascony, to
engineer a confrontation with his deadliest enemy, Guy Vexille. Once in the
south country Thomas becomes a raider, leading his archers in savage forays
that will draw his enemy to his arrows. But then his fortunes change. Thomas
becomes the hunted as his campaign is destroyed by the church. With only one
companion, a girl condemned to burn as a heretic, Thomas goes to the valley
of Astarac where he believes the grail was once hidden and might still be
concealed, and there he plays a deadly game of hide and seek with an
overwhelming enemy. Then, just as Thomas succeeds in meeting his enemy face
to face, fate intervenes as the deadliest plague in the history of mankind
erupts into Europe. What had been a landscape of castles, monasteries,
vineyards and villages, becomes death’s kingdom and the need for the grail,
as a sign of God’s favour, is more urgent than ever.
