There didn't seem to be a thread for this yet.

This has been one of my favourite series since 6th grade. The Ape Who Guards the Balance and The Falcon at the Portal are two books I like most. And it's full of great characters (some of whom are cats).
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!
- "Into Battle"

I've read a couple and they're great, the Vicky Bliss books are fun too.

I don't know if you saw the "Crocodile on the Sandbank" thread, but I posted that, sadly, Elizabeth Peters passed away last week, at the grand age of 85. There's a lovely article about her 85th birthday party on her website.
