Another cracking 5* #AmazonReview for ‘The Order of the White Boar’


15 September 2018

Matt is a youngster, small for his age, who is sent to Middleham Castle to train in the knightly arts. He’s looked down upon by the other boys who see him as merely a merchant’s son but his gift for singing makes him a favourite of Richard, the man who will be King Richard III. He makes a few friends, including Richard’s delicate son Edward, and with them forms The Order of the White Boar. He also makes some powerful enemies.

This is told from the point of view of the boy and is intended as Young Adult fiction but there’s a good story here which even an oldie like me can appreciate. There’s enough description to place the reader in the draughty halls of a Yorkshire castle, or the heart of the forest on a wild boar hunt, without it becoming tedious. I enjoy historical fiction and this one really hit the spot for me. I shall read the next in the series as soon as I have the chance.”
