Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Readers of Blood Red Horse will find themselves eminently satisfied." -Horn Book

"[This] will appeal to boy and girl readers, adventure fans and horse enthusiasts. . . . It's a pleasure to await the third book." —Chicago Tribune

"Grant balances. . . romantic love, brotherly loyalty, and political fealty while fully capitalizing on the quintessential appeal of tales heavy on sword fights and hoofbeats."—Booklist

Children's Literature
After the Crusades, King Richard is trapped by the Germans and his younger brother John aspires to the throne dividing England. The de Granville brothers are caught in the middle. Will and Gavin have returned home from the Crusades to settle down but on Gavin's and Eleanor's wedding day, Constable de Scabious attacks the castle and kidnaps Eleanor, declaring that John is King and has given him permission to marry Eleanor. Gavin was seriously injured in the skirmish and unsure of their course of action, but Will is determined and sets off in pursuit, only to be captured and thrown in the dungeon. After many setbacks, all comes together and in true melodrama fashion the hero (in this case Will) conquers the villain and rescues the fair maiden. All do not live happily ever after, however, as King Richard needs to be ransomed and the kingdom rebuilt. This is Book Two of "The de Granville Trilogy" and Hosanna, Will's blood-red horse, weaves a common thread among many of the characters throughout both books. People from many walks of life are loyal to the horse and, therefore, to the person who owns him. 2006, Walker & Company, Ages 12 to 17.
—Janet L. Rose
VOYA
In the middle of Ellie and Gavin's wedding, their old nemesis, Constable De Scabious, arrives at Hartslove with a squad of soldiers, announcing that Richard the Lion Hearted is dead. Furthermore he claims that Prince John, the new King of England, has granted De Scabious permission to marry Ellie. De Scabious abducts Ellie and sets fire to the castle, leaving Gavin, already emotionally and physically scarred by the loss of his right arm, wounded and humiliated when he and the unarmed wedding guests are unable to prevent it. Will, frustrated by his brother's apparent ineffective response to the attack, sets out to save Ellie himself, further complicating the situation when he is also captured. Eventually Gavin must give his life to save Will and Ellie; while a Saracen ally, Kamil, aids in thwarting Prince John's plot to assassinate his brother Richard, the King. Safely home at Hartslove, Will, who has always loved Ellie, remains reluctant to declare his affection in the face of his brother's ultimate sacrifice. A worthy successor to Blood Red Horse (Walker, 2005/VOYA June 2006), the first book in the De Granville Trilogy, this sequel brings the reality of the middle ages to life with integrity and imagination. Both books explore the inevitability of change and loss and the importance of unfailing loyalty. Will's mysterious horse, Hosanna, weaves a constant thread through the pages, mirroring Will's own capture and deliverance. Like its predecessor, this fast-paced, innovative glimpse into the past will spur excellent book discussions. Include both novels on your YA shelves. VOYA CODES: 4Q 4P M J S (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; Broad general YA appeal; Middle School,defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2006, Walker, 248p., Ages 11 to 18.

School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-Green Jasper begins where Blood Red Horse (Walker, 2005) ended. With King Richard imprisoned and supposed dead, there is turmoil in England in the 12th century. Will and Gavin de Granville have returned from the crusade older, wiser, and scarred from battle, Gavin having lost an arm. His betrothed, Ellie, has waited patiently for their return and now is preparing for her marriage. The ceremony is disrupted by Constable de Scabious and his men, who have spread rumors that King Richard is dead and that his brother John has taken the throne. When Ellie is kidnapped and taken to de Scabious's castle, Will feels that his duty is to rescue her while Gavin, who has been injured again, believes that they must be more cautious. Ellie, while waiting and hoping for rescue, holds on to her green jasper necklace, a wedding gift from Gavin that represents faith. Throughout this second adventure of the de Granvilles, loyalties are divided, conflicts arise, and villagers are unsure whom they can trust. Hosanna, the blood red horse, plays an important role in tying the characters together and aiding the knights in their quest to protect the king and rescue the woman they love. Although this action-packed novel can be read alone, it is much more enjoyable if read in sequence.-Denise Moore, O'Gorman Junior High School, Sioux Falls, SD Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

K. M. Grant was the third of seven children, and she grew up in the wild countryside of Scotland. When she was younger, she learned that her ancestor, Frances Townley, was executed in 1746 for his faith and his severed head was shipped around the country as an example to others. Her family kept a lock of his hair framed in the sitting room to remember him by. That family lore fueled Grant's imagination, and later, a wild red horse named Muffet inspired her to write about Hosanna. She lives in Glascow, Scotland, with her husband and children where she works as a journalist and a broadcaster.

Blood Red Horse was K. M. Grant's first novel. The thrilling conclusion to the de Granville trilogy, Blaze of Silver, will be published next spring.

    There are two options which require no fighting: don't go, or ignore the cats who attack.

    *IRRITATED SIGH* Fine. You go ahead and attack. Don't think for even a second about what you are about to do. But no matter what, you had BETTER NOT drag me and ThunderClan into this!!! Fatespeaker is also not in the real StarClan, so I will ignore any of her prophecies and omens. Have fun racing into an unnecessary battle!
