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!

When I read Prue's first book in this "Saga" Book of Pawns I absolutely loved it so this one had a way to go, and it did not disappoint. Feisty lady, noble knight, cute little boy, a touching love story, Holy War in the background and betrayal it has everything. Brilliant, couldn't put it down. Way to go Prue. Looking forward to the next one.

Too much romance and not a story to encourage you to go on reading. Quite repetitive in parts going over points that have already been mentioned. If I met the lead male character I would run a mile. His idea of a woman is tie her to the kitchen sink and keep her in the dark. Sorry not for me.

I bought this second book in the series straight after I'd read the first - I wasn't disappointed. The action moves on and further afield with each location visited being evocatively described.
I must admit that the character of Ysabel does get on my nerves sometimes, with her internal voice musing things over for pages and pages and then making a seemingly incomprehensible decision. However this decision marks the start of a fabulous & dangerous adventure for Ysabel and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about it.
I will definitely read any subsequent books in this series; and the superb story telling has made me rediscover my liking for the historical fiction genre.

Unless you feel like checking out my review of the first Gisborne novel, I will summarize book one as: a work of Medieval Romance mixed with hints of suspense that I found enchanting in its depth and feeling.

Gisborne was not my usual blood and guts, historical military or thriller fare, but being a lover of Prue's earlier Faerie fantasy works, I read it with some relish, only to find that while having nothing that would normally commend itself to my taste, I couldn't leave the book untouched for very long. It drew me in and along with the tale with the usual eloquent grace I have come to expect from Prue.

The second book of the saga - Gisborne: Book of Knights - has just been released on in E-format, and I finished it on Friday, having ploughed through it with gusto.

Book two has taken an interesting turn, as I suspected it might. The first quarter of the tale weaves along in much the same vein as the first, telling a tale of misplaced trust and hope, of damaged love and loss and the straining of hearts. To some extent I was a little wearied since the principle character (and narrator) seemed not to have grown up any in the interim and, if anything, had become a little more selfish and childish in her ways and actions, regressing a little.

Then, only a quarter of the way through the book, everything changes.

For Book of Knights is not a story only of the star-crossed and ever-troubled lovers, but also draws in threads of court intrigue, assassins, Templar Knights, deadly sea journeys, chases, escapes, duels and war. In essence, it has taken what I liked about the first book, but added a massive facet to it that will please a lot of people (myself particularly included).

This is the second title in The Gisborne Saga by Prue Batten and as effusive as I was in my praise of book 1, I did feel some trepidation as I started reading book 2...hoping that the author would be able to continue the excellence. I am happy to report that she has.... Ysabel Moncrief/De Courcey/Gisborne is one of the most fascinating characters I have read in fiction. Impetuous, intelligent, and constantly at war with her conscience, Ysabel strides through this tale of turmoil, doubt and fear as she seeks answers and safety for her and her son. The story has a bit of everything but most of all it has drama,from the plight of Sir Guy Gisborne, a plot to kill King Richard and the ever growing tension and hatred between Guy and his cousin, the Templar, Sir Robert Halsham. As with most good tales this one has it's share of plot twists and surprises not the least of which happens at the end...I will say no more about that. Another reason for 5 stars are the author's incredibly rich characters...they imbue the story with their loyalty, their realness, their believable existence.
In a word, run don't walk to your internet bookshop of choice and read this marvelous series of tales. Book three Book of Kings is in the works...I am looking forward to that.

I enjoyed this book, although preferred the first book. I felt that the story was not as strong this time around. Obviously so that there would be a follow up to this one

Having been critical of the first in the series, I came back for more. Both Guy and his infuriating lady improve in this one. A good bed-time adventure.
