Listener Opinions

    " I kinda liked it but the ending could have been better because it was all happy and stuff. All the books I read have happy endings and that's what ruins them! The authors can't always give inpressions to kids that life will always have a happy ending. If one book didn't have a happy anding, I think if the autor was good and it was well written with a likable topic and not cheesy and addicting to read, it would become a classic and New York Times bestseller. Overall this book was good it just could have been more addicting to read and a better ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ella | 2/7/2014

    " This was really good, it had death, crusades, action, betrayal, love and romance.!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsten | 2/3/2014

    " Blood Red Horse is the first book in the De Granville trilogy. YA - Historical Fiction at its best. You don't need to love horses to love this book, but horse lovers will especially enjoy this trilogy. Crusades, knights honor, betrayal and a great lesson besides - "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 1/25/2014

    " Good YA book on the crusades. Never learned much about that in history classes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel Wagner | 1/24/2014

    " Interesting young adult fare about four kids growing up in the Crusades. I wouldn't trust the historical details but it was still entertaining. I wish the writing had been a bit more sharp. It felt like it needed a good edit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamsyn | 1/22/2014

    " This book about a Crusade under Richard the Lion-Hearted is told through the perspective of two young men, one English, one Saracen (under Saladin), united by the wonderful Blood Red Horse of the title. Though it is the first book of a trilogy, it had a very resolved, satisfying ending. The bloody battles will appeal to others more than me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Olivia | 1/12/2014

    " This book easily goes down as the worst book I have ever read and probably ever will read. I forced my way through half of it and quit because I had had homework passes and didn't have to do the accompanying assignment. I do not recommend this book to anyone who would like to keep their brain cells. I feel horrible for writing such a horrible review, but it is my honest opinion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Craig | 12/30/2013

    " I learned that if you were ever in trouble or witnessed some one dying that you loved. You CHANGE!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Visaya P | 12/29/2013

    " It was a fantastic book. It makes the reader imgine that they were back in the 1190s during the crusading years. This book will leave the reader in awe shocked and will want to read more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/24/2013

    " You would think a book about the Crusades would be boring but I liked it. Easy read. And what exactly did the Crusades accomplish? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shara | 11/10/2013

    " It has a good story, albeit too laced with the toing and froing of ancient battle tactics! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 11/6/2013

    " There's a horse, a girl and an adventure. For the ya crowd probably a couple of new words thrown in, and an underlying message we should all take to heart. If halves were allowed it would be a 3.5. It's good enough for me to hunt down the next book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moriah | 10/29/2013

    " The writing could have been better, but the author did a great job getting you attached to the characters and caught up in the plot. Overall, a clean, enjoyable, historically accurate book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dvdurante | 8/5/2013

    " This series is good if you are into history and horse. Think "Pony Pals" meets the Crusades. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudia | 4/18/2013

    " Excellent book. Perfect amount of history and horses! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gzokovitch | 12/30/2012

    " It was definetly a good book. A little old. Slow starting off. Action a bit of romance and some sad parts. Four stars! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 11/19/2012

    " I read this one a really long time ago,and I remember loving it. It made me cry, though, just to warn you, but I still definitly reccomend it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jordan | 10/6/2012

    " This book was incredibly bad because it was too slow and way too sappy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CAO | 5/15/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 12/4/2010

    " This book was not as good as the first two. But it still has it's horses and love triangle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 7/31/2010

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelley | 5/6/2010

    " The final chapter in the De Granville Trilogy. The Ransom is ready to be delivered to free King Richard. The Old Man on the Mountain is ready to take revenge on Kamil. Full of action, intrigue, friendship, love, betrayal, and forgiveness. Excellent! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maegan | 8/18/2009

    " I had such a sweet ending! Everything turned out right. What makes me most happy is that Ellie, Kamil, and Will turn out happy with the whole relationship problem: Ellie and Will with their kids, and Kamil with his wife and child. Happy Ending! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassidy | 6/16/2009

    " Like all the rest of the books, I loved it. Everything panned out almost exactly as I had hoped it would, but definitely not predictable. I loved how all the characters were brought together by Hosanna. Overall the series was exciting and just really interesting and enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsten | 5/26/2009

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marina | 5/12/2009

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 4/20/2009

    " Another end to a good series. And what a good end too. Blaze of Silver, unlike many other series-ending books I've read, has a very nice ending to it. Not quite the happily ever after picture, but very close. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 4/5/2009

    " The last book of the triology was not as good as the first two. But it was still a fun read. "
