I really enjoyed Babylonne, the story of Pagan Kidrouk's daughter. Pagan stars in his own series by Catherine Jinks, and is a resourceful and funny Moorish Christian fighting in the Crusades. Babylonne is just as resourceful and colorful in her language, making for a fun read. The interesting thing for me, though, was the Crusade she was involved in. It was waged in France, the Roman Catholics against a group of believers who argued that the Pope and the Church corrupted the Holy Word. At first I was little confused about that, but I found it fascinating. (And I loved Babylonne and kept hoping that she would find a safe home.)
