As historical fiction goes, one of my favorite genres, The Archer's Diary is one of the more unique additions to the genre. What if Robin Hood was a real person? What if there is evidence that this is true? All the characters need to do is find the rest of the evidence. Easy peasy right? Not so fast.
Logan Daggett inherits an unusual collection of artifacts from his mother after her untimely, and questionable, death in an auto accident in Wales. The artifacts point to a shocking fact - that logan

So many wonderful things about this book. But first I would like to thank Author Liam Cadoc for allowing me the privilege to do an ACR Review. This is a twist on the story of Robin Hood and his lineage.
There is so much work that has went into this novel. The history enough is overwhelming. I cannot imagine the number of hours spent researching the insurmountable material for this project. I loved how Liam Cadoc created every atmosphere as if you had walked right into the book.

10/21/19, Mudgee (town) Central West of New South Wales, Australia. Donald Daggett (father, winery CEO), (mother) & Elizabeth Daggett’s (wife) car careened across High St. & plowed into a stone pillar bridge. It then flipped into the swirling Windrush River below. Water rushed in through the broken windows.
A dark figure appeared out of nowhere.
Fast forward, Gavin Allawa Nmatjera (Aborigine mate) came to Logan Daggett (Aussie, son) rescue.
Gavin was helping Logan (21, Sydney U) celebrate his birt

If you love having some history thrown in with your fiction, this is the book for you! We follow the adventures of a brother, sister, and best mate as they uncover the secrets hidden behind family heirlooms left to them after the tragic death of the siblings' parents. Dangers in many forms tail the trio as they travel to England to discover the true identity of their ancestors. This lengthy, but exciting tale is a real page-turner. The villain's cronies use a bit more foul language than I would ...more

Liam Cadoc unearths history in an exciting world-spanning adventure with The Archer’s Diary! In a tragic twist of events, son of a wealthy corporate CEO Logan Daggett comes into possession of some ancient artifacts. He sets out on a world-spanning adventure to uncover the truth about both what happened to his family and what the artifacts say about history. Cadoc really had me turning pages, both with the mystery and the awesome connections between past and present! This one pleasantly reminded ...more
I wasn't exactly sure what to expect with this book. I enjoy historical fiction in the vein of James Rollins and Dan Brown and I've always loved the Robin Hood mythos, so I gave it a try. The book started off fairly quickly, but slowed down for a number of chapters. Think Tom Clancy, but with historical figures rather than military weaponry and machinery. Some of the dialogue is a bit flowery, because I don't feel that people really speak the way they did in the book. I do have to say, however, ...more

A great tale with unexpected twists and turns, triumphs and tragedies and all placed in a setting of wonder and history. In a day and age where, in both reality and fiction, Good does not always prevail over evil, it was refreshing and encouraging to see the Good Guys win!

Love a good twist on an old line and Robinhood is one of my favorites. All in all not bad for a first novel. Good enough to have me interested in the next. Lots of detail, sometimes a bit too much but that is easily forgiven. I expect character development will truly blossom in following novels. Worth a read.

From the beginning of the book we are presented with many mysteries. Who tampered with Logan’s parents car and why? Who was the figure in black that went to the car, why didn’t they try to help the people inside and what was taken from the car? Why didn’t Logan’s mother tell him about his sister? What is the story behind Logan’s inheritance and what does it mean? These are only a few of the questions presented to the reader in this easy going tale. The book is long in pages and I felt that there ...more

I received a copy of this through voracious readers only for an honest review.

This was a long book, but there was so much historical detail and background history you could tell a lot of research had been done when writing this book.

Although the book was detailed, it did not slow up the pace of the story. This really turns the legend of Robin Hood on it's head.

There were a few continuity errors in the first half that irked me (was the jag an XKR or an XF? Was one of the henchmen from Liverpool o

WOW!!! This was one phenomenal read! It’s one heck of an adventure story/murder mystery/thriller! It well written and well paced, and if that isn’t enough, I was drawn in from the first page. It is a bit long but don’t be deterred. It’s packed with action. I can’t wait for the next book to come out.

I got this book for Kindle at no charge from the author, Liam Cadoc, in exchange for an honest review.

This was a well written book. I came into it with high expectations that, I am sorry to say, were not met. This is not the fault of the author, but my misunderstanding of the genre of the book. I did not particularly enjoy the book, as it was not to my personal taste, but it was well written and for someone who is more interested in this style, I am sure that the author’s exceptional amount of hard work will pay off greatly to make an amazing story. I believe that this, as a historical fiction w ...more

I can’t imagine anyone resisting the spell of this writer’s vivid tale. One of the strongest storylines read in a long time and finished it on the third day after reluctantly closing down the night before; (really wanted to sit into the night and read straight through).

Two Aussies, Logan and Gavin, (the latter an aboriginal considered a brother and Logan’s closest friend), receive news from the U.K. that Logan’s parents died in a fatal car accident. Papers and other items left to Logan divulge

I received this book through Voracious Readers. The cover could be considered quite misleading as it allows one to infer this is a mediaeval story. It is to some extent but is seen through the eyes of a young Australian whose parents have been killed in a car crash in the UK, leaving him with a sister he didn't know existed and a mystery. The concept is interesting and I enjoyed the historical information, bu the lead character was just too fantastic. He blundered through the book escaping by th ...more

I loved this book! Full of action combined with enough history to be interesting, this story drew me in and I stayed up waaaaaaaaaaaay too late reading it most nights. It was a bit longer than I expected, and at some parts I was thinking "oh my goodness, this book isn't over yet??" but since it was a little bit longer than I expected, there was more book to enjoy!
I absolutely adored the mysteries of this book! Trying to figure out who was after what and why and how they intended to get it and wh

I received a copy of this through Voracious Readers Only.

This was a good book. The plot was great, and I enjoyed reading it. The characters were largely likeable, and often there were humourous bits. I don’t know enough about the general historical points and geography to speak to the accuracy, but the details in the book made it seem quite plausible and well-researched. There were several different elements that were woven solidly and kept the reader on their toes.
