Overview

In a 7th century Europe of myths, gods and monsters, Bradamant---the only female knight in the service of Charlemagne---vanquishes evil knights, rescues the unfortunate, fights black magic and destroys entire armies almost single-handed. She accomplishes all this in her adventurous quest for her lost lover, Roggero, an Moorish knight she once rescued at the risk of her own life. Roggero in turn must battle monsters, giants and evil sorceresses in his quest to be reunited with Lady Bradamant. An epic retelling of the classic 16th century poem, "Orlando Furioso", "Bradamant" is the story of a brave warrioress who faces her greatest challenge, which she discovers is not battling the enemy of her fatherland but the decision of what to put first: her loyalty to her emperor or her love for a enemy soldier.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Bradamant is a rarity. A female knight in service to the Emperor Charlemagne. A respected and feared warrior knight, she is also a young woman coming of age and struggling with her beliefs. She is a lover torn between the enemy knight she loves and her devotion to her king. Fearless and ruthless on the battlefield, Bradamant is vulnerable and confused in love. with Bradamant: The Iron Tempest, Ron Miller has crafted a very highly recommended, classic medieval adventure tale of chivalry, humor, magic, treachery, and romance -- all from the perspective of a woman warrior holding her own in a male-dominated age of violence, intrigue, and treachery.
Arthur C. Clarke
"Ron is unfairly talented! I expect he'll get fed up with being called the new J.B. Cabell."
George Zebrowski
"A grand story, expertly written. The comparison to Cabell is apt."
Martin Olson
"...hilarious, extraordinary writing...[that]reminds me of James Branch Cabell [and] Italo Calvino...left me gasping for more."

"Very Highly Recommended"
