Being a King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table fan, Ghost Knight just tickled my hunger for another knightly tale, and if you have never read the Arthurian legends, you will want to have a closer look at them after reading this. Of course, Funke is also an equal opportunist, so if you like Ghost Knight you will also like Igraine the Brave, another knightly adventure. On the whole Funke protagonists are children, exceptional children (male and female) who do exceptional things in magical surroundings. Magical because Funke has a gift for transporting the reader to another place or another time, if it's in Venice, Italy or in a fantasy world of her own imagining, she will make you believe that you were really there.
