    1. As I began this novel, I found myself very soon comparing it to the Ridley Scott film "Kingdom of Heaven". The similarities near the beginning of this book are so numerous as to be distracting. The following remark may be a mild spoiler, but as it pertains to events very early in the novel, ought not to truly damage the experience. We begin with a character who discovers that he has a hidden heritage of higher birth and station than he has led to believe as he is thrust into an adventure that co [...]


    2. I am only giving this 2 stars to acknowledge that behind some of the worst dialogue I have ever read, glaring typos, and historical mistakes is a half decent storyline that at least kept me reading (but then on holiday I will read almost anything). For a relatively short book it took an inordinately long time to get the "quest" element underway, partly because of the ill-handled multi-point narrative, in which time frames were mangled and stories were clumsily resolved. Actually, I am not even s [...]


    3. As Good As Ellis Peters or Peter Tremayne.If you like your Historical Novels to be associated and connected with actual events then you will not be disappointed. The story for a change is partly about the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, i.e. the Hospilators and about ### #( read it yourself).


    4. Love my history and especially medieval. This is my first to relate to the crusades and I loved it. Not too heavy a read and not bogged down with great lengthy battle descriptions. I really enjoyed this and look forward to reading the next in series.


    5. Slow start but a great read!The start moved slowly and I didn’t expect adventures in the holy land! The stories summed up well and left nothing to wonder except how the next adventures in the series will go.


    6. GrippingExcellent read,believable characters and a great story. It has it all, hero's villains and a good finish with all made right. Loved it.


    7. Great taleAnother great story of a great time in history. I can’t wait to read the next one! All books by this author are excellent!


    8. Interesting and a good read. I will be reading the next book in the series in the next couple of days.


    9. Light reading, but historically fairly accurate. Set in the Holy Land during the Crusades, it covers the sultan's push to drive the Europeans out.


    10. I think with medieval books, they have this foreboding that kinda puts me off. That feeling that everyone is going to die screaming or something terrible is going to happen because they're all peasants.Terrible things did happen in this book, but it wasn't bad as my mind was making them up to be. The story was okay, and one of the better swordie books out there. Not really focusing on the terribleness of the world he created was a relief, but if you like that stuff it's still slightly there but [...]


    11. I really enjoyed this book, I had previously read a K.M. Ashman book and liked his style and how he tells stories which made me want to read more of his books. As far as I am aware the historical basis of this novel is quite accurate and the characters he has placed in his story are ones you can really end up liking. The story is intriguing and, I fell, keeps you interested. I also think it is a nice easy read that you will not want to put down, I know I didn’t want to put it down.


    12. Totally Enjoyable Solid historical background with relatable characters and interesting plot. Great book for snowy days for history buffs. I'm looking forward to next book in series


    13. This is an amazing, beautifully-written book. Almost epic-level awesomeness! We are transported to the Crusades and stand side-by-side with Knights, Lords and Kings. The characters are well-written and complex. This isn't just another Grail quest. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.


    14. An engaging story that does, indeed, take the reader to the crusading age with a good sense of reality. The romantic element was a bit cliched, and it needs copy editing, but as a story, it's well worth reading.


    15. Not a bad readA lot. Of people had nwegfative comments about character development and so on. I am looking for a reasonably well written story. This was one that keeps you engaged if u likelightreadimng


    16. an excellent storey with historical context a very enjoyable read with a good storey line throughout, the authors notes at the end were a welcome addition that helped to set the historical narrative.


    17. Good book but got free on the Kindle lending library and didn't get a chance to finish it. Easy to read and looked like it was about to get interesting - I was about 15% into it.


    18. Fairly standard adventure fare, quest, relics etc. At times some good description, at times some good action. Dialogue is no this writer's strong point.Easy reading.



    19. Blood of the CrossLoved this book. It was a quick read. Don't start it if you have something to do, because you won't be able to put it down.


    20. Yet anotherThoroughly enjoyed the book it is a great onsite into the time of the crusaders, looking forward to the next book


    21. A trip back in timeExcellent novel, great character development, lots of intrigue, intensity to keep you involved, story line of period with researched actual places and events





    22. This was a pretty good book. I fond I was drawn into the story and was anticipating what was going to happen next.



    23. An easy read and entertaining enough but not classic literature. Continuing with the series to see where it goes.
