Having found his place as a squire to a Norman knight, Roland Inness sets off with his master, Sir Roger de Laval, and fellow squire on a perilous mission to the Holy Land. King Richard has sworn to take Jerusalem from Saladin and orders Sir Roger to assess the military situation. Joining them is the Templar Knight Tuck as they contend with Moors, Berbers and a Sicilian usurper before reaching the battlefields in the east. There, Roland sees the ugly face of war and tests his mettle.
In England, the land is awash in political intrigue, led by Prince John and Sir William de Ferrers, Roland's mortal enemy. Countering them is Queen Eleanor who picks Sir Roger's daughter Millicent for her own mission—one that puts her at the center of a plot to turn England against King Richard. Warbow, the action-filled follow-on to Longbow, is the second book in The Saga of Roland Inness series.

More gripping adventure
I haven't read the print version, and being blind, I never will.
The death of a likable character
Neither, but I was emotionally engaged.
This is as packed full of action and adventure as was the first book. The multiple plot lines were well handled without being too complicated, and added an extra spice of intrigue. The attention to historical detail was superb, and the blend with mythology was just right.
