The Leopard Unleashed – Elizabeth Chadwick

Elizabeth Chadwick’s third historical novel, and – even with a re-edit following subsequent successes – refreshingly free from the quirks I find so annoying in later books. Purely fictional, The Leopard Unleashed follows Renard FitzGuyon from the Crusader Kingdoms of Outremer to the northern end of the Welsh Marches, where, as King Stephen and Empress Matilda battle for the throne, he must choose between duty and passion.
