The Lawless Land Summary

The Lawless Land by Boyd Morrison

First in a fast-paced historical adventure series from New York Times bestselling author Boyd Morrison and expert medievalist Beth Morrison.

Live by the sword. Die for the truth.

England, 1351. The Pestilence has ravaged the land. Villages lie abandoned but for crows and corpses. Highways are patrolled by marauders and murderers. In these dark and dangerous times, the wise keep to themselves.

But Gerard Fox cannot afford to be wise. The young knight has been robbed of his ancestral home, his family name tarnished. To regain his lands and reputation, he sets forth to petition the one man who can restore them.

Fate places Fox on the wrong road at the wrong time as he hurtles towards a chance encounter. It will entangle him with an enigmatic woman, a relic of incalculable value, and a dark family secret. It will lead him far from home and set him on a collision course with one of the most ambitious and dangerous men in Europe - a man on the cusp of seizing Christendom's highest office.

And now, Fox is the only one standing in his way...

The Lawless Land Reviews

Fantastic - suspenseful and historically fascinating... Gerard Fox could be Jack Reacher's ancestor, 700 years ago. Highly recommended!' -- Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Better Off Dead
'The authors make splendid use of such medieval-plot standbys as a castle with secret tunnels, plague-riddled vagabonds, a grand tournament, a priceless manuscript, and duplicitous churchmen as the action ranges from Canterbury to Paris and elsewhere in France and finally Italy. But the novel's real strength is its antagonists: Isabel's ruthless fiance, the Earl of Tonbridge; the power-hungry Cardinal Dominic Molyneux; and, best of all, the cardinal's sociopathic son, Basquin... Historical fiction fans will eagerly await the couple's further adventures' * Publishers Weekly, starred review *
A gallant knight, a witty heroine, a quest for the ages... The Morrisons have created a thrilling medieval adventure packed with fascinating historical detail. The Lawless Land combines the rich historical tapestry of Umberto Eco and the relentless pace and adventure of Clive Cussler into a brilliant new series. I can't wait to see where Fox goes next!' -- J.T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author of Her Dark Lies
'A compulsively readable, immersive tale of chivalric adventure and dangerous romance in a war-torn, plague-stricken Europe. Readers will relish the twists and turns of the plot, thrilling to a chase that gallops across lawless lands, winds through treacherous labyrinths, and risks all in mortal combat as the daring hero and heroine strive to save themselves and their imperiled world. A hugely entertaining historical novel!' -- Eric Jager, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Duel
'A simply riveting action/adventure novel... The stuff of which blockbuster movies are made, The Lawless Land will leave its enthusiastic readers looking eagerly toward the next installment in this entertaining saga of knight Gerard Fox' * Midwest Book Review *
'A fantastic start to a brilliant new adventure series that you won't want to miss. The brother/sister team of Boyd and Beth Morrison brings the Middle Ages to life in vivid detail with historical authenticity and a sense of fun. Packed with murder, love, betrayal, twists, epic battles, secret passages, and duels to the death, this thriller has it all!' -- Graham Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fast Ice
'A thoroughly entertaining tale that I found to be exceedingly well told. In their first collaboration, they have crafted a novel full of both authenticity and thrills, and readers are sure to clamor for more from this writing duo' -- Mark Greaney, New York Times #1 bestselling author of The Gray Man
