"Grailblazers - The Holy Grail and the Wholly Inept"

Book synopsis (The back of the book says)

Fifteen hundred years have passed and the Grail is still missing, presumed ineffable; the Knights have dumped the Quest and now deliver pizzas; the sinister financial services industry of the lost kingdom of Atlantis threatens the universe with fiscal Armageddon; while in the background lurks the dark, brooding, red-caped presence of Father Christmas.

In other words, Grailmate. Has Prince Boamund of Northgales (Snotty to friends) woken from his enchanted sleep in time to snatch back the Apron of Invincibility, overthrow the dark power of the Lord of the Reindeer and find out exactly what a Grail is? And just who did do the washing-up after the Last Supper?

Take a thrilling Grailhound bus ride into the wildly improbable with Tom Holt.

This book has also been translated to German.

What critics have said

`A rival to the comic throne.'

`Tom Holt takes hold of all heroic conventions with a skilful hand
and performs a sparkling miracle of his own

Quotes from Grailblazers

That was probably God, Boamund thought; in which case, what he'd always suspected was true.
 God did indeed come from the West Riding of Yorkshire.
Where he comes from you can take advanced falconry, or you can take spelling; not both.
