Great read, couldn't put it down. Oct. 3 2011

I came across this through an unrelated search and bought it because I like mythology but was unfamiliar with this tale. Once it was on the kindle, neither my wife nor I could put it down. I can't find any other books by this author on Amazon but we will be watching. If you like historical fiction and/or mythology, you will love this book.

Quite unexpectedly, I was completely engaged in the battles, the romance, the characters, the adventures, and the lore from the start of reading the Quest of the Warrior Maiden. I don't know this genre so my complete entanglement was a surprise. But what a pleasant surprise to be surrounded by this magical world of epic characters who retain some of their human traits of hunger, thirst and passion. The tale is told eloquently in a style that fits the period but very understandable. I can not wait for the sequel then I know I will be waiting for whatever Linda writes next. I am hooked!

Couldn't put it down July 19 2012
By Malena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Usually when I read a book outside of my genre (mystery) I get bored after a point and wonder where the mystery is. This book had me from the start and I couldn't put it down. The characters, the adventure, the love story, it all comes together to make a great book. This is volume one of what I hope will be an epic series that Ms. McCabe continues writing for a long, long time.

Review written by my grandmother Marisa Zanibelli Centra Oct. 13 2013
By marco ferrara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a surprise! An American writer tells the epic of Charlemagne’s chilvary us in an English language quite easily understood also by foreigners. The reader will recall the school lessons about Ariosto and Boiardo (“Orlando furious” and “Orlando in love”) and will enjoy following the adventures of so many characters: beautiful maidens (also valiant in battle) knights fighting for the Christian Charlemagne or the Muslim Akramont, and also magic legends. All this in a Europe as it should have been in the eighth-ninth century.
I enjoyed reading this novel and am looking forward to the following of the love story between Bradamante and Ruggiero in a new forthcoming novel, as promised by the writer.

Original text in Italian:
"Che sorpresa trovare descritte, da una scrittrice americana, le gesta dei paladini di Carlo Magno in una lingua inglese chiara e abbastanza comprensibile anche da chi non possiede una grande conoscenza dell’Inglese. ! Vengono richiamate alla memoria le letture dell’Ariosto e del Boiardo (“Orlando Furioso” e “Orlando Innamorato”, ) ed è divertente seguire le avventure dei tanti personaggi: belle fanciulle( anche valorose combattenti) ,cavalieri che si battono in a fianco del loro re, Carlomagno cristiano o Agramante musulmano, e non mancano interventi di maghi e maghe, in un’Europa immaginata come doveva essere nei secoli settimo-ottavo.
Mi sono divertita ed attendo la prosecuzione della storia d’amore fra Bradamarte e Ruggiero, nel prossimo libro promesso dall’autrice."

Love and Destiny Oct. 8 2011
By Kate Farrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This tantalizing love story is based on the Italian romantic epic poems of Orlando furioso and Orlando innamorato written in the Italian Renaissance about medieval legendary events. Yet the author retells this tale to highlight the Maid, Bradamante, a Christian warrior fighting for Charlemagne, and her love for Ruggiero, a Saracen knight and her sworn enemy.

Weaving fantasy and history in a complex plot with many characters, the author uses Bradamante's love for Ruggiero as the single thread pulling the action forward. When Bradamante learns of her noble destiny, her love for Ruggiero is elevated into a quest to save her religion and country.

Fraught with obstacles, trickery, and magic, Bradamante is entangled in a web, but is she caught? At the book's fast paced ending, madness and conflicts are at every turn. A well written and exciting adventure, fueled by passion and revenge, this is the stuff of great literature. Compelling and entertaining!
