Arrows fly, swords clash, nobles and church men are gulled out of their coins, and the French and Venetians are successfully blamed for things they did not do. "The Emperor Has No Gold" is exciting novella in Martin Archer’s action-packed saga of Cornwall’s Company of Archers, a free company that began operating transports and shipping posts at the dawn of Britain’s military supremacy and the beginning of its great merchant companies. It is an enjoyable and witty read that sticks pins into the church and nobility along the way. The on-going saga of the Company of Archers is set in dangerous and gritty medieval England during a time when there was great upheaval in Britain as the barons rose against the king, the Saracens were lashing out against the Christians in the Holy Land for starting another crusade, and Islamic pirates from the Barbary Coast were fighting for control of the Mediterranean.

Martin’s "The Game of Thrones" and authors such as Bernard Cornwell, Dan Brown, Jeffrey Archer, C.S. Forester, Griff Hosker, Peter Darman, and Jerry Auteri.

    I am running out of superlatives to describe the books in this series. It is great to read books in series because they are so rich with background that the book automatically takes on many layers not apparent to someone who doesn't know the characters and places. You could start reading here and you would still enjoy the story and the battles but to start at the beginning means you enter a world the author has created and everything builds up in the right order.

It is great to read books in series because they are so rich with background that the book automatically takes on many layers not apparent to someone who doesn't know the characters and places. You could start reading here and you would still enjoy the story and the battles but to start at the beginning means you enter a world the author has created and everything builds up in the right order. If you are an old hand this book will not let you down. The new commander, well he is relatively new, is still finding his way but here you can see how quickly he has grown into his role by the way he plans, and gets, his revenge, and he even shares some with his friends who get burned by the same crowd. Needless to say that once who have crossed the Archers you won't do it again in a hurry. I enjoyed reading this book and I can't wait for the next one.

    A Good, Brief Story After reading all the archer stories, I have become used to the broken method the author uses. He has each character speaking his dialogue and then another. This is not always easy to follow. The general plot is interesting and remains as the driving factor in the series.

    Archer, as usual, has provided us with an intriguing tale based in historical fact a.k.a. history! Characters are well developed, storyline is strong and there is a plethora of action to keep our attention. A damned good read..!!
