The legends of Charlemagne come to life in a saga filled with chivalry, secret romances, betrayal, revenge and magic. Bradamante, the niece of Charlemagne, and Ruggiero, a Saracen knight descended from Hector of Troy, are renowned warriors who meet and fall in love on a battlefield before being separated. The heroine, Bradamante, receives the call to adventure from an enchantress shows her Ruggiero's two possible fates. One is where he is baptized a Christian, marries her, and fathers a child with her, but is murdered before their child is born. His other possible fate has him causing the defeat of Charlemagne and the fall of Christendom. If she follows her heart, her beloved will die tragically, but if she denies her heart so that Ruggiero lives, her family will die. Dueling magical forces compete with each other to determine which of Ruggiero's fate will come to pass. Quest of the Warrior Maiden is adapted from the classic epic poems Orlando innamorato and Orlando furioso and examines the conflicts between love, war and faith.

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
