How could I forget Shadows & Strongholds - a very big favorite of mine. I loved the way we read about the two as they grew up.

I'd hate to be the walls in Misfit's house! They get heads banged against them, books thrown at them, and lord knows what else! Poor walls! LOL :D :p :D :p :D :p :D

Throwing a book that thick would certainly put a hole in a wall! :D

I'll definitely have to add another rec for The Marsh King's Daughter and The Falcons of Montabard - just for starters. Read them all! There are a handful I haven't gotten to ..... yet.

"The Greatest Knight, Daughter's of the Grail" and The Marsh King's Daughter"....Interesting and very compelling reads.....She will inspire you to learn/research more about the subject areas she writes about.....And most important she does her research......

I think I would have to say "Lords of the White Castle" is my favorite EC book so far. This being said it was my first so that could be the reason.

Something about Fulke tyring to straddle family duty and honor with keeping in good graces with his king I found quite intriguing. Fulke was such a great character I thought, courageous but just and wouldn't take any flak from anyone. I also loved the settings in it.

I havent read them all yet so my favorite could change.
