A great romp, fun adventure, funny and interesting writing, historically accurate, but not for kids. Sex, sex sex, penis, boobs, pedophilia, blood, rape, murder, war, sex, angst, and did I mention sex?

I read the first few pages of this book and was tempted to put it down. The main character was annoying, the dialog seemed stupid and very strange and it was all just depressing me. But I stayed with it, and I'm glad I did.

This is the story of Alix. Her father is a baron along the Scottish border, but when he and her mother are killed in a vicious attack by Scots, her life turns upside down. Her father, in a deathbed conversation, begs Alix to somehow get the land returned to her. He suggests she appeal to the King, Henry. He also suggests that she dress as a boy on the roads, to avoid being raped. She does this, and pretends to be an eight year old boy, instead of the twelve year old girl she is, and heads out for London.

Once on the road Alix quickly hooks up with Enoch, a young Scot heading to the university in Paris. She becomes his traveling companion, and he helps her when it becomes clear she's being pursued by men intent on killing her. Of course, Enoch has no idea Alix is a girl.

Once in London the two learn that the king is dead, and his son, Richard the lion heart, is king in his place. But the new King Richard is intent on going on crusade to the holy land, and Alix must speak to him get her land back. Soon she and Enoch are in Paris, and once having made a bond of brotherhood, they head off to the Crusades.

Alix quickly becomes a favorite page of the kings, and she pays no head to the gossip about him and young men and instead believes that he can see she's a girl, and maybe loves her...

This story is endearing, exciting and historical accurate. On reflection, the seemingly annoying vocabulary of the characters is just right for the time period, as is Alix's most unladylike behavior. I could see the ending coming a mile away, but I still enjoyed it. It's too well written not to love.

There is a second (and now a newly published third) follow up novel(Yes, I've read them.) Read them if you want to know the authors version of Alix's future. I think personally, that not only are those books not as good(by far), but they don't really reflect what would have happened. When you send a story out into the world by publishing a book, the story belonges to everyone-not just the author. So I will always imagine a far different future for Alix, and stop the story with the end of Sheild of Three lions. It's a fantastic book-as a stand alone novel.

The Shield of Three Lions is an historical novel set in Medieval times involving a young girl's journey to the court of King Richard of England. For safety reasons she travels as a boy. Along the way she is unwittingly involved with a Scot named Angus Boggs. Pamela Kaufman is an expert story teller who weaves great humor throughout the journey. With flawless expertise we travel along with "Alix" as she grows from a young girl into a woman. The ending is unexpected and with grab your heart with tears. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves this genre and wants to laugh, cry and be totally absorbed. I couldn't put it down. I bought this for my daughter and just might buy myself a new copy as mine is worn from many readings.

I really enjoyed this book
However it was challenging at times with the vocabulary being difficult to understand.
I'm sure it was historically accurate however and I enjoyed that.
Very Old Chap
Could not put it down. Am now finishing the third book in the series. This story of midevil England as told by a young maiden is Historical fiction at its best. The crusades, king Richard, Queen Elenore, Prince John even Robin Hood thrown in and seen as they really were, historicly accurate.

I have read this book several times over the years. I have a hard back book but wanted this on my Kindle. I'll probable read it again in a few years. One of my all time favorites.
Incredibly readable book about the Crusades and the involvement of Richard I of England. This and the companion book, Banners of Gold, make for interesting fiction of this period in history.
