I'm in nineteenth century China, and the Edo Period of Japan.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

It's 1666, in the small village of Eyam, England and lots of people have the plague.

I enjoyed Book of Wonders, Susan.

I'm in 1810 where I'm a humble companion to Princess Sofia, one of mad King George's daughters. There has just been an attempt on Sofy's brother, the Duke of Cumberland's life.

I finished Book of Wonders last night. The book you are reading sounds interesting, but it's not available in the US except for for re-sells.

It's a book I picked up in the library. It's a recent release in the UK so it could possibly be published in the US a little later. It's the first book I've read by this author and it won't be the last. It's well researched and the narrator has a sense of humour!

I hope so, Vanessa. I've read quite a bit of NF about George III's daughters but no HF.

Are any of Laurie Graham's other books published in the US? Perhaps you could contact her via her website to see if there are any plans to publish it internationally.
