Michael Cadnum is the author of many highly praised young adult novels. He lives in California.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-9–Although this adventure story can be enjoyed on its own, it will be most appreciated by those who have read The Book of the Lion (2000) and The Leopard Sword (2002, both Viking). This concluding volume in the trilogy finds squires Edmund and Hubert back in England achieving the honor of knighthood. They find themselves in the midst of turmoil caused by Prince John's desire to overthrow his brother King Richard. Eleanor of Aquitane, the royals' mother, sends the new knights on a dangerous pilgrimage to Rome. During this journey through Europe, the dangers and unrest of the time period come alive. Some references are made to the events in the previous titles, which aid in readers' understanding and provide necessary background information. This is a quick read with nonstop action. At least a little knowledge of medieval history would add to the appeal of the book.–Denise Moore, O'Gorman Junior High School, Sioux Falls, SD
