It’s not often that I have a week where every single book is awesome. It means that I was up until at least 3 every night because I couldn’t put something down, but it was so worth it. If you are in the mood for historical fiction set in England in the Middle Ages, or a bit later, get thee to a bookstore and pick up either (or even better, both) Candace Robb’s Owen Archer series or almost anything by C.C. Humphreys. I only say almost all on the Humphreys’ books not because they are not all utterly marvelous, but because they aren’t all set in England. If you’re picky, that might matter. If you just want some great historical fiction, start any of his series.
I was sorry to see Delilah S. Dawson’s Blud series end. Her alternate steampunkish-vampirish England is a marvelous invention. But I was glad to see Tish and Criminy’s story come to a happy ending at last in the oh-so-appropriately titled Wicked Ever After.
