This book is about a young man that has to deal with the fact that the men that had raised him might not be exactly what he thought they were. They were all in involved in a plot to kill his father. The young man's name is Richard Shelton and he falls in love with a girl named Joanne Sedley. He has to leave her behind, however, when he has to run for his life from Sir Daniel, his legal guardian and master mind to the plot that killed his father. The book tells of Dick's quest in making a name for himself and rescuing Joanne from the clasp of Sir Daniel. This book is an excellent fictional story in twined in the famous fight between the Lancaster's and the York's. This book was magnificent in the way the author used language and imagery to describe events, characters,and places in a way that made it easy to picture in your mind. The plot of the story was easy to follow yet never stopping in the adventerousness and excitingness of it. The author was very talented in explaining and writeing about each character in a way that made you either understand, love, sympathise, or hate them. If you love adventure and intimate books, you will absolutely love 'The Black Arrow'.

I really like adventure books especially ones that are historical based. I really got into the story here being that it brought in a war within a war. A good story that had me going from the prolouge. The story was funny and yet somewhat dramatic i would recomend this book as a good read.
