Sorry to break the line of books that will be added on the list but I wanted to say how appreciated the list is. I am more likely to try one of these books out next time I'm looking for something new rather than pick something randomly on i.e Amazon. I have already "discovered" Mr Gortner via HFO and there are many more books to be discovered written by "our" members. :D

A couple of additions, if I may:

Historical fiction

Seventh century Britain
Carla Nayland (Carla). Paths of Exile. In seventh-century Northumbria, the exiled Eadwine of Deira has to evade his relentless enemies and take the first step towards reclaiming his kingdom.

I'm not quite sure what category the other one fits into; it's not historical fiction because it's set in an invented world, it's not really historical fantasy because there's no magic, it's not contemporary fiction because the setting has approximately medieval technology... I call it 'invented history', or maybe a category for 'Miscellaneous Fiction' would cover it and anything else that's tricky to categorise. Anyway, here are the details:

Carla Nayland (Carla). Ingeld’s Daughter. Adventure and love story, as an heiress seeks to regain her kingdom from a usurper. Set in an invented world loosely based on medieval Britain.
PATHS OF EXILE - love, war, honour and betrayal in Anglo-Saxon Northumbria
Editor's Choice, Historical Novels Review, August 2009
Now available as e-book on Amazon Kindleand in Kindle, Epub (Nook, Sony Reader), Palm and other formats on Smashwords
