The Archer´s Castle is the second book in an exciting action-packed saga of 11 books set in medieval England during the days of King Richard and King John, prior to the Magna Carta. It is the tale of an English serf who rises to become the captain of a company of archers and leads its survivors as they fight their way back to dangerous and brutal feudal England after King Richard suddenly abandons his crusade - and what happens to him and his archers when they return. Most of the archers do not return as a result of intense fighting, but some of the former serfs and free men do return - as battle hardened veterans determined to improve their lot in cruel and brutal feudal England. This exciting novel combines action-packed historical fiction with a family saga set in an era of non-stop war and action. The Archer´s Castle is the second novel in the saga. William, his brother Thomas, and William´s son George finally reach feudal England with the surviving archers and become embroiled in a war with the Earl of Cornwall that will change England forever. 1.

A land-surveyor, known only as K., arrives at a small village permanently covered in snow and dominated by a castle to which access seems permanently denied. K.´s attempts to discover why he has been called constantly run up against the peasant villagers, who are in thrall to the absurd bureaucracy that keeps the castle shut, and the rigid hierarchy of power among the self-serving bureaucrats themselves. But in this strange wilderness, there is passion, tenderness and considerable humour. Darkly bizarre, this complex book was the last novel by one of the 20th century´s greatest and most influential writers.
