I'm so into reading historic novels nowadays.
I have like "reading sprees", once I couldn't stop reading Agatha Christie's detective stories, then it was horror like Lovecraft, then Tolkien, and now it's this!
I've read Alexandros and it was quite good, and then I bumped into a Gary Jennings book called Aztec and became a total fan almost instantly. I just had to read the second and third books, but they weren't that good.
I've read The Journeyer too, and now Raptor. I have to admit, some parts are kind of violent but I believe it could have been true. He makes it so real and the books are very exciting, you won't get bored reading them.
