Quest of the Warrior Maiden (英语) 平装 – 2012年9月1日
The legends of Charlemagne come to life in a saga of chivalry, secret romances, betrayal, revenge and magic. Based on the epic poem "Orlando furioso" and "Orlando innamorato," QUEST OF THE WARRIOR MAIDEN is a retelling of the classic tale of impossible love between Bradamante and Ruggiero, two famed warriors on opposite sides of a holy war.

Brandamente reminds me a bit of Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones. Fearless, with high morals, and superior fighting skills, Brandamante is a fine heroine. Still, she doesn't have everything she needs because her heart is after Ruggiero.
You don't have to know the historical background of the story to understand and enjoy it, but if you do like history then the way the author included bits of history will please you. Still, it is NOT history "heavy".
When I was a child I loved fairy tales, and if you do too, I recommend this read.
