Book Description

In this final book of The Gisborne Saga, Gisborne, spymaster and valued knight of Richard Lionheart, is forced into a fierce duel in which his wife and son are thrust round the board in a brutal game of revenge.
Is it the Knights Templar who seek to avenge their own? Or is it Eleanor of Aquitaine who claims Gisborne is a traitor to England?
Or is it someone from Gisborne’s own cadre?
Trust is the only commodity of any value at a time when life could end with the flight of an arrow, but can Gisborne be trusted enough and will his wife and son survive his obsession?

Rated five stars by READERS' FAVORITE USA reviewer Kathryn Bennett

'This is a historical novel with teeth and will make you feel as if you can see the events of the story playing out before your eyes instead of just on the page...This final installment can stand on its own and does not leave you clutching for information. It is clear that author Prue Batten has done her research and put it firmly into the story. The book itself has a natural flow that keeps you wanting and reading more... Any lover of the historical fiction genre is going to enjoy this book depicting a time that is not written about nearly as much as it should be. I would recommend this one as a fantastic summer (or any time) read to the history lover.'

    More About the Author

    I was born in Australia and studied history and politics at the University of Tasmania. I've worked as a hotel cleaner, a cosmetician in a major department store, a bookseller but most properly as a journalist/researcher for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation where I met my husband, also a journalist.

    We now farm in Tasmania, growing the superfine wool for which Australia is famous. I spent almost ten years as a coordinator for the cancer therapy program Look Good Feel Better and time as a walker for Riding for the Disabled and for the local Dogs' Home. I have two adult children, two dogs, too much garden and maybe too little time to write.

    I write both historical fiction for which Gisborne: Book of Pawns received an Honourable Mention in the 2012 Golden Claddagh Writing Contest, and historical fantasy for which A Thousand Glass Flowers received a silver medallion in the 2012 Readers' Favorite Book Awards.

    I'm what the pundits call a 'niche' writer which means that both the fantasies and the historical fiction don't conform to pre-conceived concepts of their genres.

    What better way to entice readers than to offer you a chance to read novels that are unique!

    Ever since I finished book two of this exquisite series, I had been waiting none too patiently for the third knowing that a wonderful treat was in store for me and the author did not disappoint. As with the first two volumes the story is replete with tension filled plots and marvelously depicted characters. The main female protagonist, Ysabel, while she has matured maintains that spark of spontaneity and stubborn willfulness that makes her such an intriguing character. The main male protagonist, Gisborne, remains much the same as he keeps things close to the vest even though his heart is tormented with the kidnapping of their son and the growing hatred and need for revenge is kindled within. That is one of the author's strengths, the ability to draw you into a character so completely that you feel what they feel; the anguish, the fears, and yes the joys. Indeed the rich variety of characters makes this book(and the other two) such a joy to read. Descriptive scenes and scenery, a tale filled with the gamut of human emotions; well I can only say that it is a pleasure to have read all three and I am sure you will feel the same. 5 stars and more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another step up 30 Jun. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Those of you who follow my blog and reviews, or even just listen to me blather on Facebook or Twitter will already know of Prue Batten and how I regularly vaunt her writing. If you are new to these or need a reminder, I would say to you simply that of all the writers I know (and not just the independent ones) Prue's writing style is the most mesmeric, flawless, silken and almost poetic. She could write up the minutes of a meeting of a county council's session and make it sound like a ballad. So you already have an inkling of where I'm going with this review.

    Prue became noted early on as a writer of fantasy - a rather unusual and intriguing fantasy world of her own creation that revolved around the mythical Faerie. These books were rather darker than many would assume when they hear the word Faerie, for Prue has given us more of a view into the kind of Fey that still dominate the folklore of the Celtic world. The sort of Faeries that steal children, play with mortals' minds and trick and deceive. Such were the chronicles of Eirie. Needless to say, I love them and would recommend them to a fantasy reader who's looking for something a little different, with depth and insight.

    Then, in a move that came as a surprise to me, a few years ago, Prue turned her hand to the genre of Historical Fiction. Thus was born Gisborne: Book of Pawns. In very brief summary, this was the tale of a young noblewoman from Aquitaine in the 12th century, a ward of Richard Coeur de Lion, who falls in with Guy of Gisborne (yes, him. You've heard of him.) Essentially, a medieval tale with a strong lean towards the Romantic genre, this was a tale of betrayals and survival and with Prue's mastery of the written word was an instant hit with me, despite not shooting for my area of interest.

Never expected that ending but it was a great twist. Brilliant again Prue, I will await the next one with bated breath. Thank You

    I have read all three of the Gisborne trilogy. I did enjoy them otherwise I wouldn't have read them all. However, I must admit that the last two words of the final story stunned me. I won.t say more as I don't want to spoil the pleasure of other readers. I had thought the books were based on fact.

    This book was my favourite out of the three I couldn't believe it had come to an end. Love, violence,intrigue it had the lot and I couldn't believe Ysabel had finally grown up! Wonderful story which left me panting for more, on to Tobias now. Brilliant stuff!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A good ending to the trilogy 25 Aug. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I have thoroughly enjoyed the three books about Ysabel and her husband Guy of Gisbourne. Lots of twists and turns, some nice characterisation, a good plot. What's not to like?
    Looking forward to more books.

    A rollicking, good light-weight read, though I still find the heroine tiresome at times! Hope others will follow ....
