Image of The Outlaw Knight

From the pages of history, and Chadwick’s skillful pen, comes the sequel to Shadows and Strongholds — allowing Fulke FitzWarin to emerge as a true outlaw knight. The 12th century comes to life as Chadwick weaves a tale of betrayal, deceit and intrigue as well as captures the pageantry of King John’s court and serves up a banquet for medieval fiction fans.

Fulke FitzWarin incurs the future king, John’s, wrath when he is a young squire. This bitter rivalry denies Fulke and his family their greatest desire. Land in the Welsh Marches and the title Lord of the White Castle hold a place in Fulke’s heart as does the young, wealthy widow Maude. But Fulke once again runs afoul of John, who also wants Maude. The twists and turns of the treacherous political climate and the tumultuous events leading up to the signing of the Magna Carta block Fulke’s path to all he desires. His rebellion risks love, life and honor. (SOURCEBOOKS, Sep., 400 pp., $15.99)
