Marching on Through Time
See what I did there? Here is what I read in March.
1) Tyrant by Christian Cameron (http://www.hippeis.com/tyrantseries). Set during the time of Alexander the Great. Ancient Greece has not really been touched by historical fiction authors from what I can find although there are a few books about.
2) Sharpe’s Fortress by Bernard Cornwell. The last of the novels set during Richard Sharpe’s time in India.
3) Hannibal: Enemy of Rome by Ben Kane (http://www.benkane.net/his-books/hannibal-enemy-of-rome/) Set during the Second Punic War between the Roman Republic and Carthage. Very readable.
The next few books are going to be largely set in the Roman Empire. This is a very popular time period for historical novelists, as was discussed at the Historical Novel Conference I went to in September. Here is some very interesting figures from the Society about what centuries are popular with writers: http://historicalnovelsociety.org/hf-by-century/
