Publisher's Summary

From Medieval England to the Crusades in the Holy Land comes a legendary woman of Magic and Might.
In the days of Richard the Lionheart, Gwendolyn was born. Conceived within the Druid mists, at King Arthur's Legendary Pool of Pendragon and as prophesied by a Druid Priestess, she grew into womanhood, and became the most powerful knight the world had ever seen.
When Miles Delong, Earl of Radstock and military adviser to King Richard first saw her, he was lost to her beauty and might. He taught her the art of war, but it was Gwendolyn who taught Sir Miles the art of love.
Together, Gwendolyn and Myles fought their enemies both at home and in the Holy Land. But it was not until Sir Miles was treacherously given over to Saladin, the King of the Moors, that Gwendolyn left England's Druid Groves and went to the Holy Land, not as Gwendolyn Delong, wife of the Earl of Radstock, but as Sir Eldwin of Radstock, where she led the fight through the bloody Crusades and into to the very court of Saladin, that the Queen of Knights became a legend.

Can't think of any off hand.

I definitely loved Miles the best.


Who was the most memorable character of Queen of Knights and why?

No one character sticks out for me. The book and characters were well written and even the bad guys were great.


Any additional comments?

Good narrator with an enjoyable performance. Kind of a bad British ascent but that didn't hurt the story at all in my opinion.

Worth the listen, inventive story!

This book is well written, a bit Chaucerian and flowery in places, but it's period correct.
I think this book should have been spread out over a few books do we could connect more with some of the characters, context and back story would have given more depth to the plot.
This book does do something rather rare, it is a new idea while using Arthurian legend and other influences of the time.
The difficulty was that since the book goes so quickly, you don't empathize with the characters and understand their deeper motivations. It ends up making the characters two dimensional, which is a shame. The writing is solid and details aren't missed, which is a real mood killer when an author forgets hair color or a character off on a mission.
This book was provided to me, free of charge, for an unbiased review.
