Book Description

Once Lady Ysabel Ce Courcey had thought that if she had been a trobairitz, she might have written a song about herself – her courage in the face of adversity that would have had the men and women in any noble hall sighing as they listened.
Now, on the eve of the Third Crusade, the denouement of the ballad is beginning…
Ysabel races across the waters of the Middle Sea to seek out Sir Guy of Gisborne because she has vital information that could save a king.
But above all, she longs to tell the wronged knight she values him and will stand back to back with him in a vengeful battle that could threaten all their lives.

    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!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Tale 7 Aug. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous adventure.. 6 April 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric and intelligent 15 July 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    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).

    5.0 out of 5 stars Gisborne Book of Knights 10 Nov. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars a bit disappointed 29 Mar. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    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

    I only dropped a star because the heroine was such a frustrating ditz. The book however is a page turner.
