I'll leave it to others to suggest that one! My earlier ones are slightly more romantic with imaginary protagonists. The later ones are about actual historical characters and tell their life stories.
The Greatest Knight will be available in the USA around this time next year and also Lords of the White Castle. If sales are good then the rest will gradually be rolled out too.

There is some discussion at the beginning of this thread about where to start with ECs books.

I started with The Winter Mantle, Lords of White Castle (I should have read Shadows and Strongholds first), The Conquest, the Champion, The Greatest Knight, Wild Hunt then Falcons of Montrabard and the last EC book I read was Shadows and Strongholds. I just oredered Shields of Pride, under $15 at amazon, couldn't pass up.

I'm guessing you had no control over that one? What's funny is I wasn't in the book CD section, just looking at one of Hollick's books and it popped up in the you might also like.....

No control at all. I have a consultation say in my UK covers, but it's only that - consultation. Foreign rights and audio are Forrest Gump's box of chocolates - you never know what you're going to get!

Oh, gosh, it looks as if it would be better suited to a Merlin book, doesn't it?! Or a guide to fencing!! Hey, and he even looks as if he's a bit of a contortionist looking at how his cloak or whatever it is is splayed out. LOL. Perhaps it's to do with the money side of things, audiobooks being quite expensive, and trying to keep the costs down for the buyer?

Oh...I didn't read it properly one first sight. Looked at the picture and thought it was for The First Knight!

Yes I thought it would be more suited to Merlin too!
