Publisher's Summary

Along the ancient Pilgrim Trail traveled by countless crusaders from Europe to The Holy Land, Dr. Rory Osgrove is in charge of her first archaeological dig. A Biblical Archaeologist by degree, her target is a holy relic of unimaginable power. But what she discovers instead is the tomb of a long-buried Crusader, one of the thousands who came to this desert land in search of glory and riches. Deterred from her original goal, Rory is fascinated by the English knight and the journal buried with him. Reading the pages of the ancient diary, she comes to know a man of power and honor, entrusted by Richard the Lionheart with a mission of astonishing importance. Sir Kieran Hage was no ordinary Crusader and, as Rory discovers, nor is he really dead. Eight hundred years later, Kieran's mission must be completed, but there is an ancient evil that follows him and is still determined to see him fail. Now Rory begins the adventure of a lifetime, where time has no meaning, where honor is strength, and where only true love endures.

Medieval Sleeping Beauty

I always enjoy Kathryn Le Veque's books and this 2 part "the crusader" series is no exception. This first book takes place in the year of 2012 and introduces the main character Rory, who is an archaeologist on a dig for religious artifacts. She is a strong willed character who fights for love even when centuries threaten to divide.

I liked this book a lot but I liked the second book "Kingdon Come" even better. I actually think KL should have made this series one big book instead of splitting the two. So, if you listen to this one and enjoy it make sure you listen to "Kingdom Come" too. ;-)

Contemporary + Historical = Awesome

Would you listen to The Crusader again? Why?

Yes! It's an awesome roller-coaster adventure. The plot & character development are exciting, and of course the romance is electric. Its fun to day dream & imagine what it would be like to meet a real living, breathing knight in shining armor. I like the reverse Sleeping Beauty premise in modern times.


What other book might you compare The Crusader to and why?

It kind of reminds me a little to Johanna Lindsey's "Knight in Shining Armor" as that's also a romance story about a contemporary heroine who meets an English knight. That's one of my all-time favorite romance novels, and so is this book & it's sequel "Kingdom Come." This is one of Kathryn Le Veque's best!!!


What about Brian J. Gill’s performance did you like?

I liked how he effortlessly changed between contemporary American dialects to the historical English knight's accent. He also did a great job towards the end of the book with the additional characters' & slightly changing his timbre/tone for their voices.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not a specific moment, but I love the whole book!


Any additional comments?

It's one of Kathryn Le Veque's best in my opinion & one of my favorites by her!!! It's a must read/listen and so is the sequel "Kingdom Come!"
