I read this when I was 12, but stopped half way through because t was due back at the library. A lot of it was pretty slow, but the part where the mysterious Black Knight was fencing was too good to put down. If you like Jane Eyre or Pride and Prejudice you should definently read this.

Violence: Nothing too gory. What you would expect from Medival times violence. It didn't make me want to put the book away.
