The first in a trilogy of hilarious fantastical adventures about a mercenary knight from the bestselling duo behind The Edge Chronicles, Paul Stewart and current UK Children’s Laurate Chris Riddell.

Free Lance has no master – he journeys from village to village and castle to castle, competing in tournaments and working for his keep. When his horse throws a shoe and he must seek shelter overnight in Lord Big Nose's village, he accepts his most dangerous mission yet – retrieving an enchanted crown from the Lake of Skulls. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

"Thrilling, gruesome and comic all at once, the authors drawing scenes and characters brilliantly in very few words" – LoveReading4Kids "You tend to feel sorry for Free Lance's journey through hell and back, though there's a fair bit of laughing to do first" – Fantasy Book Review, Blog "The dream team of Stewart and Riddell are on fantastic form for this outing. The language is simple … yet loses none of Stewart’s trademark fantasy wit and grandeur" – BookTrust "Owes a lot to Beowulf and more to pulp fiction: close scrapes with monsters and villains, wisecracks, double and triple crossings and plenty of Tarantinoid violence" – Books for Keeps "Very well told … an easy pleasure" – The Bookbag
