AWARDS
• Winner - Best Historic Fantasy by the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association (BAIPA)
• Honorable Mention for Genre-Based fiction by the Hollywood Book Festival

From the dawn of the Middle Ages comes a tale of impossible love between two sworn enemies set against the backdrop of a holy war between Islamic and Christian armies. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down 20 July 2012
By Malena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Usually when I read a book outside of my genre (mystery) I get bored after a point and wonder where the mystery is. This book had me from the start and I couldn't put it down. The characters, the adventure, the love story, it all comes together to make a great book. This is volume one of what I hope will be an epic series that Ms. McCabe continues writing for a long, long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, couldn't put it down. 3 October 2011

I came across this through an unrelated search and bought it because I like mythology but was unfamiliar with this tale. Once it was on the kindle, neither my wife nor I could put it down. I can't find any other books by this author on Amazon but we will be watching. If you like historical fiction and/or mythology, you will love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review written by my grandmother Marisa Zanibelli Centra 14 October 2013
By marco ferrara - Published on Amazon.com
What a surprise! An American writer tells the epic of Charlemagne’s chilvary us in an English language quite easily understood also by foreigners. The reader will recall the school lessons about Ariosto and Boiardo (“Orlando furious” and “Orlando in love”) and will enjoy following the adventures of so many characters: beautiful maidens (also valiant in battle) knights fighting for the Christian Charlemagne or the Muslim Akramont, and also magic legends. All this in a Europe as it should have been in the eighth-ninth century.
I enjoyed reading this novel and am looking forward to the following of the love story between Bradamante and Ruggiero in a new forthcoming novel, as promised by the writer.

Original text in Italian:
"Che sorpresa trovare descritte, da una scrittrice americana, le gesta dei paladini di Carlo Magno in una lingua inglese chiara e abbastanza comprensibile anche da chi non possiede una grande conoscenza dell’Inglese. ! Vengono richiamate alla memoria le letture dell’Ariosto e del Boiardo (“Orlando Furioso” e “Orlando Innamorato”, ) ed è divertente seguire le avventure dei tanti personaggi: belle fanciulle( anche valorose combattenti) ,cavalieri che si battono in a fianco del loro re, Carlomagno cristiano o Agramante musulmano, e non mancano interventi di maghi e maghe, in un’Europa immaginata come doveva essere nei secoli settimo-ottavo.
Mi sono divertita ed attendo la prosecuzione della storia d’amore fra Bradamarte e Ruggiero, nel prossimo libro promesso dall’autrice."
