I cannot get enough of “back in the day” books. Catherine Jinks book Babylonne was set in the 13th Century, I love shit like that. Jinks has researched the Middle Ages extensively, so she is the perfect escort back to the 13th century, in all its glory and horrors. Some real fucked up stuff goes on.
Jinks has an adventurous and spirited writing style that shines brightly right into her feisty and determined heroine. She writes with such animation and energy that her audience will experience Babylonne's tragic and heartfelt adventures almost as if looking through the teens own eyes. Readers may be familiar with this author from her numerous other novels, and they won't be disappointed in her newest exciting journey.
