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+

"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
