The story centers around the adventures of a young man, Dick, who finds the knight that has raised him was actually the murderer of his father and only kept him alive to sell his inheritance.
The story then turns into one deadly encounter after another as Dick tries to stay alive while fighting against his old master. His timely escape from one deadly episode after another is in the style of modern political action heroes such as Mark Cole ant Mitch Rapp.
While the setting of the story is dated and told in a somewhat archaic style, if you enjoy a good adventure story full with love, betrayal and a lot of fighting go ahead and give The Black Arrow a try.
I have mixed feelings about this book. I enjoyed the approximate first half of it very much -- up until the point where Dick and Joan(na) are separated. The dynamic between the two leads is interesting to read and the dangers they face feel real. After that, I felt the book lost steam. The plot and characters held a lot of potential I feel the author didn't capitalize on. The book is titled The Black Arrow, but I daresay The Black Arrow is only involved fleetingly. Even in the battle scenes, I felt no tension, no sense of urgency. And the final confrontation was rather disappointing.
