Overview

MORGARTEN (Book 2 of The Forest Knights Duology)

This action-packed conclusion to The Forest Knights series picks up where ALTDORF left off.

A small force of peasants from the forest regions surrounding Lake Lucerne, rise up against their Austrian overlords in the 14th century. Outnumbered seven-to-one by the battle-hardened Habsburg army, they have little hope.

A daring moonlight raid leaves the outlaw Noll Melchthal in possession of an Austrian fortress. In the north, an outraged Leopold of Habsburg assembles the ultimate punitive force: a great army, thousands strong, boasting the best knights and soldiers the Holy Roman Empire has to offer. Noll's rebel army of boys and old men, numbering less than a thousand, have few swords, and even less armor.

But he has two things that Leopold does not: a Priestess of the Weave, and a ferryman.

The forests can protect them no longer. It is time to make a stand.

    Great read

    ***Spoiler Alert**** I enjoyed this book & its predecessor. It was a great story. I do feel like the story was a little unfinished. What happened to Noll & Mera? Did Thomas go back or did he stay in Wallis? How did the people do with there rebuild? Did Sutter make it? I have all these questions & not sure if there will be a third book. Although I understand why Thomas & Seriana could not be together, I was still sad since they loved each other so much. All that being said it was still a great read.

    Draws you in

    I realize with historical fiction regarding a singular event, there is a limit to how far such a story may continue. Morgarten is a well written novel interweaving an excellent cast of very likeable...well some not so much... characters in and around the Battle of Morgarten. I found I would be happy to read more about them, if only in a totally fictitious tale.

    Could.not.put this down

    This was an incredible story. Fiction based on history and so well written ... I had to google the characters that I could to learn more. Perhaps the story seemed a bit unfinished but we were given good hints about where and how the main characters finally settled. I would certainly read a book 3 though if ever written.

    Real characters

    The besr part of any story are the characters and these feel like they could jump off the page.

    It should be Part 2, as the 1st book had no conclusion and you are compelled to get the second book. That being said, as the other reviewers stated, we need part 3. It is a good read with good characters, so much so, I purchased another by the author. Different series. I hope this series has a conclusion. I'll continue to wait for part 3 in this one.
