I love to read HF set in Ancient Egypt, but I have to confess that when it comes to time periods (ie New Kingdom, etc.) I am not that well versed, so when you say "New Kingdom or earlier. Though not the Amarna Period or Ramses the Great, please" I am not entirely sure when/ who that would refer to. ...

I started reading Women in the Wall by Julia O'Faolain this morning, after reading a few posts made by members of this forum recommending it. I've only read the first chapter but I can definitely already understand what was meant by the dark, gritty tone and feel of the book. I just hope that the fa...

Hey Carla! Yep, that was me in the emails. And yes, I did get your reply. I have been working on my reply back to you, but I have been very busy the past few days and haven't had a chance to finish it up. I will try to get it out to you tonight! Oh, and I would be more than happy to proofread any un...

Okay guys, I just finished reading Spirit of Lost Angels by Liza Perrat and all I can say is wow ... Just wow. I have read a LOT of Historical Fiction over the past 15 years or so, and as a result, it is pretty difficult to find a book that really satisfies me, let alone moves me. But this book did ...

I'm reading Spirit of Lost Angels by Liza Perrat. I downloaded the sample a while back and finally decided to read it and see if it was worth buying the whole book. So I read the sample and was at least caught up enough in the story to want to know what happened next, so I went ahead and bought it. ...

I gave up on The Cross and the Dragon last night. It was pretty awful. Very simplistic writing, poor character developments, with a main character who has already secured a marriage with the man she wants to marry but still keeps thinking to herself that she needs to get pregnant by him before they ...

I will look through my Calibre list more in depth in a while, but I did a tag search for Crete and these two books popped up: The Year-God's Daughter - Rebecca Lochlann Crete: A place of magic, of mystery, where violence and sacrifice meet courage and hope. Aridela: Wrapped in legend, beloved of the...

I finished Paths of Exile by Carla Nayland last night (well, actually about 4 o'clock this morning and I LOVED it!!!!) and just started The Cross and the Dragon by Kim Rendfeld. I have been looking for HF novels about Charlemagne or set during his reign for ages and I finally found one. And this one...

Thanks for the link! I also read the article Carla has posted on her blog about early medieval surgical knowledge. Very interesting! Can't wait for the sequel! I'm just glad that I read the book now and not back in 2008 or 2009. I'm sure I would have died of suspense, having to wait that long to kno...
