As “Book of Pawns” begins, Sir Guy of Gisborne is accompanying Lady Ysabel back to her home in Moncrieff after her mother’s death. This would be a long and adventurous journey throwing Gisborne and Ysabel closely together, forcing a difficult, unwanted relationship between the two of them. Gisborne was a complex, difficult man, not always to be trusted but that didn’t stop the strong physical attraction of passion and lust between the two of them. Wow, this book captured me in the beginning and I was engulfed in its pages until the very end. A true thrilling page turner with characters that will surely keep you on your toes. I enjoyed the visit to the Twelfth century England and the wonderful details and vivid descriptions of the area as well as the life and times of that era. The more I read, the more I really liked Ysabel. Upon returning home, she had to face the reality of her mother’s death and the ruins of her father, which she had only just learned about. And as if that is not enough, Yeabel’s personal life was anything but happy, a devastating marriage to a horrible man, all of the difficult and heart-wrenching things she had to endure, not at all what she hoped life would be for her.
Prue Batten’s “Gisborne: Book of Pawns” is for sure Guy of Gisborne without Robin Hood, without the Sheriff of Nottingham and without Maid Marian. A twisted and enticing tale that you will not want to end, this story will stay with you for a while after you read the last page. I encourage you to pick up a copy of this enticing book to read and enjoy for yourself. This is a book you will be happy you read!
