4.0 out of 5 stars A truly authentic medieval romance! 3 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With a hero who has just stepped out of the pages of Aurthurian legend The Knight has all the vulnerable qualities of Lancelot with all the steel of a true hero. Definitely for those who like the strong silent type with a hint of mystery! The dialogue is convincing. The setting against the damp mists of Glastenbury makes you step back into the pages of history. A must if you enjoy the reality of life in the middle ages where the King and the Church vie for overall power.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing 21 May 2001
By CMG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Normally I can't wait to get a book by Juliana Garnet, but this time I was extremely disappointed. I found this book very boring. It seemed to drag all the way through. Harriet Klausner reported in her review that this was an Exciting medieval romance, but I found nothing exciting in it at all. I'm wondering if Ms. Klausner has ever read The Baron, The Vow or The Scotsman by Juliana Garnet. Now they were exciting books. The hero and heroine were very well matched and the blossoming romance was quite good, but to tell you the truth I also found them a bit tepid. Also, there must be a trend running through romance publishers, as this was the 3rd of 4th book I have read about the King Arthur Legends in the last couple of months. Though the Arthur Legend is not the main point in this book, I think it could have been left out, it just seemed to pull you in a different direction away from the main quest to find the Grail. I didn't like this book very much, but I will now wait for the next Juliana Garnet book and hope that I will find it a better read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally absorbing 29 April 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Earl of Essex offers Sir Stephen Fitzhugh a deal that even the cautious knight could not refuse. Stephen gains lands and the keep Dinmow in exchange for bringing to the Earl the Holy Grail. Stephen refuses to go on a wild goose chase after the legendary chalice, but finally accepts because he knows the Earl is not one to send anyone in a futile quest. He agrees to go and the Earl says evidence points towards the Last Supper's wine cup to be at Glastonbury Abbey.

Stephen arrives at the abbey only to find the abbot dead and his papers given to his niece Aislinn. Stephen tries to get her to give him the journal, but she forces his hand and instead they become partners in seeking the Holy Grail together. While neither one plans to share the chalice with the other if found, love enters the picture changing the dynamics. However, several other people want to either end their quest or steal the chalice if they succeed, leaving Stephen and Aislinn in danger.

THE KNIGHT is an exciting medieval romance that provides the audience a deep look at the times through the eyes of the characters. The lead protagonists are a charming pair struggling with love and diametrically opposed positions on the Holy Grail. Known for her fast-paced delightful historical romances, Juliana Garnett comes up with a diamond with her latest novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL KNIGHT AND DAMOISELLE 10 Jun 2001
By "lethe2" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved this story and the way it was written. The emotional feelings were so intense at the end I was actually afraid that the evil uncle was going to prevail and we would be left with a sad ending. But, Ms. Garnett comes through as she always does. Well worth buying and reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars rather a let down 21 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was really looking forward to reading another novel by the talented author of The Vow and The Baron. Unfortunately, this one is not nearly as heart-tugging and emotional as the former. The constant faith discussions for the first half of the book between the two leads really started to wear me down (Can we talk about something else besides religion?) And if Aislinn is so pious as to worry about breaking a commandment (like lying) - isn't fornication right up there as well - perhaps even more serious? A little contradicting.
However, I did like the history info - esp the final chapter included by Garnet about her research.
Inspite of this, I look forward to Garnet's next book. I still think she has incredible talent and potential.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Renaissance Romance 1 Jun 2002
By N. Kerns - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have found it difficult to find good romances that take place during this time period, but this one engaged me and kept me interested. While not the best I ever read, it is worth a read by anyone interested in Renaissance-era romance.
While it starts a little slow with all the talk of monks and the abbey, it picks up as soon as the pair meet. The obstacle to their love - the fundamental nature of the two people - was an excellent one, because it was realistic and believable, as opposed to being kept apart by some ridiculous misunderstanding or such that is often the case with romance novels.
I have never read a book by this author before, but I am going to look for more by her.
