A couple of nice reviews are helping The Cross and the Dragon start off 2013 in a great way.

Lisa J. Yarde, author of historical novels set in the Middle Ages, including The Burning Candle, On Falcon’s Wings, Sultana, and Sultana’s Legacy, is also an active blogger. About The Cross and the Dragon, she writes, “She weaves a powerful tale out of a few strands of history, encapsulated in the epic poem The Song of Roland. Despite scant details mired in legend, there is great emphasis on a vivid portrayal of the medieval period. The author truly brings it to life. Alda and Hruodland’s mutual courage is equally inspiring.” Visit Historical Novel Review blog for Lisa’s full review.

Avid reader and fellow cat lover Jo at Jaffareadstoo says, “The subtle but imposing characters make the story very readable, and even if you know nothing about the middle ages, you will enjoy the experience of stepping back into a time when love and war were intermingled and to be a woman in man’s world was often a frightening and lonely place to be.”

Visit Jaffareadstoo for the full review and my interview with Jo, in which I discuss my second book, The Ashes of Heaven’s Pillar, and talk about the three people from history I would invite to dinner.
