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 me of Assassin’s Creed or The DaVinci Code, so definitely check it out if you love those!"

5 STARS - The Archer’s Diary
"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 and his previously unknown sister are the direct descendants of a Welsh lord who may be the actual Robin Hood. Along with following the clues left behind by his mother, Logan and his friends try to make sense out of the death of his mother and father as well as being chased by some very determined people who really want to possess the artifacts. It's all jolly good fun. There is a lot of historical information scattered throughout the book that adds plenty of interest to the story.
There are plenty of twists and turns and "didn't see that comings" in the book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series."
3.5 STARS - The Archer’s Diary
"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, that the last third of the book is pretty rewarding for action/intrigue fans. Cadoc is a very talented writer. Hisaction sequences parallel many of the great authors I enjoy..All in all, it was well-written, if a bit long-winded."
4 STARS - The Archer’s Diary
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 prefer, but it still fits in well with their characters. All in all, a very enjoyable book!
