I really like Shadow of the Moon, Shogun and Green Dragon, White Tiger, but for variety I'll nominate The Secret Mandarin, by Sara Sheridan, which is currently on my TBR pile. Not sure if it's available in the States yet, though.

Shogun takes place in Japan, right?
I would like to nominate an old-time favourite, Aztec, by Gary Jennings. Set in Mexico.

I am relatively new to this forum, so these may have been nominated before, but here goes.

Any of Michelle Moran's books on Egypt
Memoirs of Cleopatra by Margaret George
Child of the Morning by Pauline Gedge

Good nominations, Brenna, but you need to pick just one!

Thats funny, I was going to nominate his Journeyers, about Marco Polo! But thats probably out because a significant part takes place in Venice

All the books I can think of are travel narratives or non fiction...Anything out there that takes place in Africa, the Middle East, Australia, the poles? Canada or South America? Must be thousands.

But that's no fun!!! Because I DNF it the first time I tried to read it, I will vote for Pauline Gedge's The Child of the Morning. I hope Michelle doesn't mind.

I think all of her books have made it in because I know I nominated two :D and then someone else did the third.
