As brave as any Knight Templar, Ysabel risks travel across the waters to one of the strongholds of the Knights of St John. Nonetheless, danger lurks in Cyprus and nothing is quite as it seems, for court intrigue has followed Richard the Lionheart from home shores. Ysabel discovers her beloved is a man of shady existence, and that her presence alone may undermine his role as a 13th century spy. For although he has indeed gained respect in quarters of likeminded souls, there are still enemies within the king’s camp who remain hell-bent on his demise. Rash as ever, Ysabel’s love for Gisborne leads to one foolhardy act, which in turn affords the advantage to his enemy and all looks set to bring him to his knees in utter defeat. But Gisborne is what he is, brave, devious and if only Ysabel can see him for who he really is life could be so much easier. Gisborne book 2 is yet another lovely romantic rendition of misread trust, love, and of Ysabel learning to read the heart of the man she loves.
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.
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).Read more ›

Enjoyed the book but not as much as book 1 in the series. The heroine's continued mistrust of Gisborne is extremely difficult to believe and becomes frustratingly annoying. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Oakhammer
