    About the Author

    Wayne Grant

    Wayne Grant grew up in a tiny cotton town in rural Louisiana where hunting, fishing and farming were a way of life Between chopping cotton, dove hunting and Little League ball he developed a love of great adventure stories like Call It Courage and Kidnapped.Like most southern boys of that era he saw the military as an honorable and adventurous career Every living male member of his family had served in the Army covering World Wars I and II, Korea and Vietnam, so it was a natural step for him to attend and graduate from West Point He just missed Vietnam, but found that life as a Captain in an army broken by that war was not what he wanted After tours in Germany and Korea, he returned to Louisiana and civilian life where he began a 10 year career in government including four years as a senior official in the Pentagon during the Reagan administration During those years he saw the Army reborn from its post Vietnam nadir to the outstanding force it became and remains today.The Saga of Roland Inness series began as the coming of age tale of a fourteen year old boy who possessed extraordinary talent with a longbow It is a story of courage, loyalty, honor and treachery Most of all, it a story of high adventure set in a time so filled with drama it has spawned legends that fascinate people to this day It is the time of Richard the Lionheart, Robin Hood, Eleanor of Aquitaine and William Marshall, legendary figures all some real and some fictional.The Saga of Roland Inness begins with four books Longbow, Warbow, The Broken Realm and The Ransomed Crown These four books are the coming of age story I set out to tell Having told that tale, I fully intended to move on to other stories, but something unexpected happened Readers all over the world found something special in Roland Inness and his companions and wanted I d grown rather fond of my boy with the longbow as well and knew there were stories to tell So the Saga continues A Prince of Wales, the fifth in the series was published in November, 2017 A new Roland Inness adventure will be out in summer, 2018.If you would like to know about the author or get updates on new books, visit his webpage at waynegrantbooks or the Longbow Facebook page, facebook Longbowbooks.

      The final book of the Roland Inness series was mostly predictable and I would consider it just OK. I think I was a little tired of the series by this point. This series has a historical basis in terms of England, Richard the Lionhearted, and the Crusades, etc. but the author takes liberty of course with extra characters and events that did not really exist. This is a simple, idealistic story with lots of action. The target audience for this series is teenage boys and I could definitely see mysel [...]

      I loved it! I was curious, though, how in the world Sgt Billy got back into the town of Chester after he delivered Millie to London? I know it says the soldiers returned by the back roads, but . . . really?! Other than that, I thought this was a fabulous series. The characters were very true to their historical counterparts, and the history as Grant writes it is authentic and plausible. I loved the way the series wrapped up, and I am looking forward to seeing if there are more in the works!

      Absolutely love this series!This is a great series that takes you back into the times of knights, kings and earls. The story starts with a young man in trouble and finishes in this last book with him having grown into a man of integrity and honour. I totally recommend this series to all ages teen and up. Some of the violence is a little much for younger ones. I wish this series continued past this book but it was a good ending for it.

      Satisfying conclusionI wrote a review of the first book of this series and said that certain aspects of the writing style seemed a bit simple and the plot shallow. But I liked the three main characters and continued. I was pleased by the pace and plot development of the subsequent books and the blending of real points of history with a sprinkle of the Robin Hood fables layered in. Not the intensity or sweeping effect of some contemporaries, but very satisfying.

      An Epic Tale masterfully toldAs a boy I voraciously read any and all books that I could lay my hands on about Robin Hood . So, I was pleased when I discovered this series. I was even more pleased when I fell in love with the characters and became absorbed by the storyline. It was well worth my time and money.

      Mr. Grant, you write a very good story. I am eighty years old and once I start to read your wonderful books I can't put it down until the wee hours of the night. I am now in the last pages of book five. So, hope you keep up the stories reads because I truly enjoy them. You are a great author. A new fan, Adelaide

      Promises to keep and princes to thwart. Clever girls and cunning spies. Sieges and starvation. Treaties and trebuchet. Reunions and rebuilding. An exciting addition to the saga, with a satisfying ring of resolution. Grant neatly ties up (nearly) all the loose ends and story arcs and could have left things here. I understand there's a fifth book. (Once more, into the breech!)

      Great characters, high historical adventureWell written, which in this day is exceptional in itself, and a very satisfying read. I highly recommend this author and look forward to his next adventure.

      The events may be fixtional but they feel realIt was exciting to read the conclusion of Roland's saga. I haven't done much looking at that period of history, save what was forced on me at achool, but I think that will change.

      A good readWhen I first started reading the series I thought it might be a bit of a lighter read and meant for younger readers. I quickly became engrossed in the characters and the "alternative" perspective of the historical story. Recommended for anyone interested in that era.

      GreatCan hardly wait to finish the next book. Light reading but with enough real events sprinkled in which makes it interesting. Would recommend this book

      AmazingIt ends so well it could end the series or have another 50 books. It lacks no action and has amazing unexpected twists. 5 STARS.

      Robin Hood and Eleanor of Aquitaine - What's not to like?This book concludes the tale of Roland Inness - an entertaining story filled with knights, Lords, Ladies, soldiers and common folk caught up in the political turmoil of England during the reign of Richard, Lion Heart. The books are easy reading and filled with heroes battling against villains. I would rather the four books have been combined as one, but that seems not to be the way publishers work these days. Nonetheless I would recommend [...]

      SaddenedCannot believe we have reached the finale. For me this saga has been brilliant,giving me pictures in my mind every step of the way. The characters were amazing but l also had the named horses imprinted in my minds eye big sigh.

      I wish it wasn't overWhat to say? Somehow the Saga of Roland Inness grabbed me and would not let go. This series is not the best written in form, it has many mistakes and many flaws, and yet, I love it.I think I love it because the author loves it. I can feel his excitement, his heart, and his imagination shining through the story and the characters. Grant is a real person who loves Roland Inness, and by turn, made me love him.Roland is not the most witty, charming, nor handsome hero to ever gra [...]

      A brisk tidying up of all the plot threads of the past 3 books of this series. Good enough, although at times I found it a bit tedious. I continue to find the only female lead here not believable - she's really too dense and totally unready for the role given her as she freely admits and why the fate of the nation - she even rescues the Queen from certain death!!!!! is placed on her shoulders makes little sense except as an effort to turn what is a 'boy' book into a 'girl' book too. This might b [...]

      Another fantastic book! I have loved reading these books and I'm both sad for the Saga to be at an end and happy that this won't be the end of Sir Roland Inness Living in Staffordshire and growing up near to some of the places mentioned in these books has been brilliant, having already visited some of the castles and towns and cities It really helped in envisioning the places mentioned. Wayne Grant you are a fantastic author and I look forward to reading more of your work!

      Couldn't put these books downAny lover of historical fiction - any lover of a rollicking God yarn - will love this whole series. Mr. Grant is a soldier with a few good stories to tell. His hero, Roland Inness is an expert with the illegal assault weapon" of the 12th century, and he uses it with deadly effect. These novels are packed with what a man wants in a book: Causes worth fighting for, leaders worth following, love worth defending, and villains deliciously evil.

      Very realI like the style of writing. I have already recommended it to others. It has introduced me to some history that I was not aware of, like Kinder Scout. I am looking forward to more of this excellent writing.
