Item description for Insatiate Archer by Hunter Taylor...
In the mists of time, when the line between superstition and reality has not been drawn, war rages between the new religion and the old. And the ferocious battle for hearts and souls is fought in flames and innocent blood. Gentle but deadly Susanna with her startling, differently coloured eyes is a witch, a High Priestess of the druidic groves, struggling to embrace the best of Christianity. But the monstrous Yellow Curate will stop at no evil to rid the world of her and her ancient beliefs. Hunter Taylor seamlessly joins 14th Century fact, myth and magic to take her reader on a breathtaking odyssey through a land in the birth pangs of change, where Susanna is never more than a footstep ahead of the sadistic cleric obsessed with her destruction. And behind every tree, every crumbling stone wall, every wooded hill, the Insatiate Archer lies in wait, caring little whose heart his next arrow will pierce. Hunter Taylor's immaculate research and magical writing style create a dazzling reality we may only before have experienced in our dreams . and our nightmares. Insatiate Archer is a novel of harsh truths in the most cruel of times, sometimes hard to bear as you tear through its pages. It is not a book for the faint-hearted.

Reviews - What do customers think about Insatiate Archer?
Nicely done! Oct 8, 2007
The prologue of "Insatiate Archer" captured my undivided attention, and the remainder of the book kept me spellbound, literally up to the last word. I don't usually read a great amount of the sort of subject matter this book discusses, (I term it medieval fiction, for lack of my ability to arrive at a better term), but the author presented the material in a manner such as I could not escape her. Consequently, I'll be anxiously awaiting her next book, regardless of the subject, simply to experience more of her outstanding literary ability!
An action-packed novel Aug 7, 2007
The debut novel of retired soldier Hunter Taylor, Insatiate Archer is an action-packed novel set in the harsh era of the 14th century. Heroine Susanna is a high priestess of the sacred druidic groves, who seeks to accept the best of Christianity. Yet the murderous Yellow Curate will stop at nothing to exterminate her beliefs from the face of the earth. Susanna can barely stay scarcely one step ahead of her relentless pursuers, in this dramatic tale interspersed with touches of magical fantasy - a land where the ruthless Insatiate Archer could be lurking behind any obstacle, arrows notched and ready to pierce fresh hearts.
Do NOT judge this book by its cover!!! Jul 9, 2007
I'm a big fan of the Weiss-Hickman sci-fi/fantasy books, and the story sounded vaguely similar, so I gave it a try. The first impression, the cover, does not begin to communicate the excitement, the passion or the surprises related on the pages within. Just read the prologue and see if it doesn't get your heart racing. It's a truly excellent story, very well told. If you enjoy the ups and downs of a thrilling fantasy, I strongly recommend this one, and look forward to the next book from Hunter Taylor.
I was trapped in the book! May 27, 2007
Hunter Taylor is an amazing wordsmith. I was completely caught up in the characters' trial and tribulations. I went through a wide range of emotions, and had to wrench myself out of the book to do other things. I found the intersection of faiths fascinating, and the recurring theme of what really matters touched me. I truly hope there is another book forthcoming from this delightful author; the epilogue left me wanting more. Do yourself a favor - read this one.
