Read full description of the books:
I liked this story, the adventure was huge, exciting, and a lot of cool events took place along the journey! It was a very longggggg crusade though, but I was happy to find out that when they did get to Jerusalem, the story didn't end there and kept on going, showing more of the city and such. I really liked that, because other crusader stories I've read in the past stops there, and we don't even get to see much of Jerusalem. But Gatty's Tale wasn't cut short at all, and I liked that!
Gatty herself is a really good character, I loved her. She's a great sport, funny gal, and strong heroine that made me smile!
If you like medieval fiction and Arthurian tales, you'll probably really like this book!
