More About the Author

Prue was born in Australia and studied history and politics at the University of Tasmania. She has worked as a hotel cleaner, a cosmetician in a major department store, and a bookseller. But most properly she has been a journalist/researcher for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation where she met her husband, also a journalist and subsequently a media executive, now a communications consultant and farmer.

She now farms in Tasmania with her husband, in a cropping and grazing operation. She spent almost ten years as a state coordinator for the cancer therapy program Look Good Feel Better and time as walker for Riding for the Disabled and for the local Dogs' Home. She has two adult children, two dogs, and claims she has too much garden and too little time to write.

Prue writes historical fantasy for which A Thousand Glass Flowers (Book Three of the quartet, The Chronicles of Eirie) received a silver medallion in the 2012 Readers' Favorite Book Awards in the USA. She also writes historical fiction, for which Gisborne: Book of Pawns received an Honourable Mention in the 2012 Golden Claddagh Writing Contest (USA), a 2013 Rone Award (USA) and a 2014 Indie Book Readers' Appreciation Group's gold medallion (USA). The Huffington Post has done a story on her work and she has been interviewed a number of times by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

She has concluded The Gisborne Trilogy and has just finished writing Tobias, the first in an historical fiction trilogy called The Triptych Chronicle and which escalated to Top 100 with Amazon.co.uk (Biographical Fiction) within a day of being released. She has also completed two short story anthologies which are to be published in 2015. Each of her e-novels have ranked unbroken in Amazon.co.uk's Top 100 since publication and continue to rank, for which she thanks all her readers!

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.

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.

Oh Prue you have done it again. What a beautiful story. I especially loved William he was a darling, Ysabel was a strong,brave and loyal women, and Guy well need I say more your Guy has to be my favourite. 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.

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.
