I enjoyed reading this book. It was a quick read and I liked the story line I just wish it had a little more description. I would like to know what the characters were smelling as well as seeing as well I would have enjoyed it to be longer but I am always greedy with a good story!. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a love of historical fiction. it is a light simple read but a good one.

An enjoyable epic about a small group of crusaders returning from the Holy Land, it intermingles historical fact, a little Robin Hood, and William Tell. A good read, but a little too short for my liking.

Some graphic scenes and certain sexist statements that rattled my teeth. They are however entirely appropriate for the historical context of the story. Looking forward to the next book.

Give me Knights, drench them in history and I'm a very happy camper...or reader in this case.

Really enjoyed the book. Great time period and good back story to crusades. The characters are a bit standard (ie; the conflicted hero, the capable heroine, the dark Duke, evil henchmen) but the writer managed to make them engaging. It 'read fast' for me, kept me wanting to stay with the story.
