Official Summary: “The Dark Ages—a time of great turmoil and the collision of empires!
As the Frank kingdom prepares for war, Roland, young heir to the Breton March, has been relegated to guard duty until a foreign emissary entrusts him with vital word of a new threat to the kingdom. Now Roland must embark on a risky journey to save all he loves from swift destruction.
And yet while facing down merciless enemies, he must also reveal the hand of a murderer who even now stalks the halls of power and threatens to pull apart a kingdom reborn under the greatest of medieval kings, the remarkable Charlemagne.
For Roland to become the champion his kingdom needs, he must survive war, intrigue and betrayal. The Silver Horn Echoes pays homage to “La Chanson de Roland” by revisiting an age of intrigue and honor, and a fateful decision in the shadows of a lonely mountain pass—Roncevaux!” – Goodreads
Review: I don’t read a lot of historical fiction, I tend to listen to it in Audio format. It can sometimes come across a bit dry, so I prefer hearing it than reading. That being said, there wasn’t a dry moment in this story. It was action and twists throughout.
Was very pleasantly surprised by how the story turned out.
