You need three things to become a brave and noble knight: A warhorse. A fair maiden. A just cause. Will has a horse-a small chestnut stallion with a white blaze in his brow. Ellie is a fair maiden, but she's supposed to marry Will's older brother, Gavin. And as for the cause, King Richard is calling for a Crusade. The Knights of England must go to the Holy Land to fight. Will and Gavin will go. Blood will be shed. Lives will be taken. But through it all, two things will be constant-Ellie, and a blood-red horse called Hosanna. . . .

About K. M. Grant

See more books from this Author
K. M. Grant was the third of seven children, and she grew up in the wild countryside of Scotland. When she was younger, she learned that her ancestor, Frances Townley, was executed in 1746 for his faith and his severed head was shipped around the country as an example to others. Her family kept a lock of his hair framed in the sitting room to remember him by. That family lore fueled Grant's imagination, and later, a wild red horse named Muffet inspired her to write about Hosanna. She lives in Glascow, Scotland, with her husband and children where she works as a journalist and a broadcaster. Blood Red Horse was K. M. Grant's first novel. The thrilling conclusion to the de Granville trilogy, Blaze of Silver, will be published next spring.
