TBR Planning for November

Sunday, November 1, 2015
I have a lot of really awesome historical fiction headed my way in November. I signed onto two tours and received a third from the author PLUS found more on Netgalley. It's almost a theme but these are also some of my favorite authors.

 A Year of Ravens by various

Britannia: land of mist and magic clinging to the western edge of the Roman Empire. A red-haired queen named Boudica led her people in a desperate rebellion against the might of Rome, an epic struggle destined to consume heroes and cowards, young and old, Roman and Celt . . . and these are their stories.

A calculating queen sees the sparks of revolt in a king’s death.

A neglected slave girl seizes her own courage as Boudica calls for war.

An idealistic tribune finds manhood in a brutal baptism of blood and slaughter.

A conflicted warrior hovers between loyalty to tribe and loyalty to Rome.

A death-haunted Druid challenges the gods themselves to ensure victory for his people.

An old champion struggles for everlasting glory in the final battle against the legions.

A fiery princess fights to salvage the pieces of her mother’s dream as the ravens circle.

A novel in seven parts, overlapping stories of warriors and peacemakers, queens and slaves, Romans and Celts who cross paths during Boudica’s epic rebellion. But who will survive to see the dawn of a new Britannia, and who will fall to feed the ravens?

I've read several of these authors before with A Day of Fire (which was about Pompeii) that I am cautiously optimistic how they'll handle one of my favorite historical figures.

The Conqueror's Wife by Stephanie Thornton
One of my favorite authors takes on Alexander, Hephaestion, Roxana, Thessalonike, and Drypetis. Another one of my favorite times and people, if anyone can pull all of this off it would be Thornton.

Medicis Daughter by Sophie Perinot
Marguerite of Valois was a fascinating woman and Perinot is just the author to bring her story to life again.
