    Tired retelling of an old tale

    Pamela Kaufman has attempted to write an alternate version of Joan of Arc. But I found this story far less than inspiring. Packed with corruption, greed, rape and other ever so savory concepts of human morality, an otherwise innocent teenage girl pretends to be a boy to join the crusades.

    I found it overall a fairly unpleasant book. I would not recommend it.

    A reviewer

    As a lover of history, this book immediately caught my attention, but it was the details and characters who kept my interest. I read the book in ONE day - it was too good to put down. Anyone who loves adventure, romance, unforgettable characters, and history MUST read this book!

    more from this reviewer

    This is where it all started for me and my love of historical fiction.

    Great book. Lots of fun, I learned quite a bit about the middle ages, Richard the Lion King, the Crusades and royal politics and land ownership. I came to appreciate the role of women at the time and how one had to use all their strength and intelligence to survive.

    Great story, captures the imagination

    Loved the characters and the plot. Sometimes felt that I needed to suspend belief in the plausibility of some plot elements. Liked the conclusion, but the ending seemed a little drawn out and overly dramatic.

    An addictive read

    Everything about this book was great until the end....that's where it got confusing. For me anyway. You may enjoy the suspense though. If your looking for more try the next book, but as for the third if your looking for romance you won't find it. Purely polotics

    Laugh out loud funny

    I read this book and its sequel Banners of Gold when they were originally released in the 1980s. I enjoy Medieval fiction especially if it combines suspense along with humor--these books were no exception. I found myself laughing out loud at times. Pamela Kaufman's gift of description has the ability of putting the reader there in the story. The reader will not be disappointed.

    Wonderful Read

    I loved this book, my nextdoorneighbor was the one that said I should read it and I did and loved it. All throught the book there were twists and turns and many surprises. The only thing I didn't get (don't read if u haven't read the book) was the relationship between Alix and Richard. I don't understand if he is homeosexual or not...If someone has read the book and understands please e mail me and explain it to me. All in all a great book, really loved it.

    Great escapist reading

    I just bought these books (this one and the Banners of Gold sequel) recently and was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable they were to read. I love historical fiction that isn't just your normal, run-of-the-mill romance novel, and these books are perfect. I can't believe no one else has picked up on this and written a review! The author manages to inject humor and reality into a farfetched plot with great skill. Some of her descriptions regarding sanitary issues are at once disgusting and hilarious. I may have laughed out loud a couple of times.
