Format: Paperback
The Gisborne saga is more about Ysabel de Courcey and her tumultuous relationship and adventures with Gisborne than about the man himself. I confess that in the second book of the series I found the leading lady's character intensely infuriating, reckless and immature, although I assume that was deliberate. After all, she was very young and perhaps we were all a bit like that once?! To the backdrop of Richard I's Crusade, dubious Knights Templar and medieval Europe, Ysabel, Guy, their son and entourage lurch through a dangerous world of subterfuge, secrets and spies.

Albeit this book is the second in the “Gisborne Series” - the author has followed true to form, and once again Ysabel Moncrieff sets the scenes and reveals aspects of a longing for the father of her child, a longing that knows no bounds. Again, in first-person narrative, Ysabel tells of hardship and loneliness in the wake of the denouement (book 1) which left her bereft and not knowing the fate of her beloved Gisborne. Her days in Aquetaine seem endless until the day comes when news of Gisborne’s whereabouts are revealed. Prior warned against taking rash measures in pursuit of her dreams, Ysabel listens to her heart and sets out on a quest to unravel truths from lies.

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.

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.

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.

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).
