Review:

"McCabe paints a vivid portrait of Medieval France whose vestiges can still be found in the streets of modern Paris." ~ Cara Black, award winning author of the Aimée Leduc mystery series and Murder at the Lanterne Rouge

"Classic in its theme of young, idealistic lovers from opposing camps, it sheds a bright light on the culture, history and legends of a time and place too little explored by most western readers." ~ Persia Woolley, author of the internationally acclaimed Guinevere Trilogy

"Rich in detail of the period, fans of the genre will truly appreciate McCabe's intelligence in detailing for her readers the events behind and leading up to the poignant love story between this lesser known couple from legend."  ~ bestselling author, Patricia V. Davis

"A grand and engaging re-telling of the original 'star crossed lovers' epic with everything Orlando - chivalry, romance, fights to the death, hippogriffs, madness, and beauty! As engaging a story as I have read this year, I couldn't put it down and I urge you to pick it up today." ~ John Granger, author of Unlocking Harry Potter

"In Quest of the Warrior Maiden, author Linda McCabe reveals an undeniable talent for creating a truly memorable and epic fantasy saga incorporating memorable characters, cliff hanger suspense, magic and Arthurian romance of the first order. Quest of the Warrior Maiden is enthusiastically recommended reading and a first rate selection for community library Science Fiction/Fantasy collections." - Julie Summers, Reviewer - Midwest Book Review
