I've decided that there's too much history and too little time.
Downstairs, my "TBR pile"--the literal pile of printed books that I have on my reading list looks like a sky-scraper. And I have an unending, unread collection on my Kindle, too. Then there are the several books I still need to read for my current project, which are mostly non-fiction.
My point? It's just fun to dive into historical fiction. It's my favorite escape and delightful addiction. And how wonderful to have thousands of years of history in which to peruse. Sure, I have favorites, but lately, I've broadened my horizons a lot. In fact, my current project is in a period that I frankly didn't know much about. That research has given me amazing insights into the early years of the United States.
This week, I have a tantalizing book spotlight to share--taking place in the early Viking/Saxon Age. And for those of you who love bloody sword-sagas, you're in luck, because M.J. Porter is dishing out a series you won't want to miss! Take a look and check it out!
And most importantly, READ ON!
All About The Last King
By M. J. Porter
From author MJ Porter comes a thrilling new hero. They sent three hundred warriors to kill one man. It wasn’t enough. Mercia lies broken but not beaten, her alliance with Wessex in tatters. Coelwulf, a fierce and bloody warrior, hears whispers that Mercia has been betrayed from his home in the west. He fears no man, especially not the Vikings sent to hunt him down. To discover the truth of the rumours he hears, Coelwulf must travel to the heart of Mercia, and what he finds there will determine the fate of Mercia, as well as his own.
