100 Must-Read Medieval Historical Fiction Novels

Can't recall how I found this link from BookRiot, but I did scan through it and found over 30 books I hadn't heard of which interested me. Some of our members are even on this list like Susan Higginbotham and C.W. Gortner and Elizabeth Chadwick. Of course there may be others of our members who made it on the list, I just don't know who you are. ;)

He missed one of my favorites - The Falcon of Palermo by Maria R. Bordihn. In looking up Maria Bordihn on Amazon, it looks like she's written another book - Die Kaiserin von Ravenna, but my German is very elementary & it looks like there is no English edition at this point, even though the publication date is 2012. I'd love to see that in English!

Thank you for the link Rowan, I only just got to it now but there are lots of interesting sounding books on there that I've never heard of! I only own 16 of the titles mentioned and haven't even read them all yet...
