Pagan’s Crusade, a tale of adventure, suspense, and humor, by author Katherine Jinks, is a must-read for anyone who loves historical fiction. Easy to read, with compelling characters including a brave Templar knight, humorous pilgrims, and an less-than-honest tour guide. Set in the Kingdom of Jerusalem in the 12th century, this book follows the story of a boy named Pagan who, after joining the Templar order as a squire, finds himself in much more of an adventure than he counted on.
This book has great historical detail, and Katherine Jinks integrates it so well and naturally, that this could be a story set in the present. However, since this is the first book in the series called the Pagan Chronicles, there are many unresolved sub-plots. I would recommend this book to anyone in middle school, especially if they are into history and warfare.
