Présentation de l'éditeur

Take a sweeping journey through history and across the world with this limited-edition collection of 5 full-length historical fiction novels.

For lovers of mystery, war and adventure! 150 5-star individual reviews.

1100s - SEASON OF THE RAVEN (A Servant of the Crown Mystery) - Denise Domning

Sir Faucon de Ramis, the shire's first Crowner, must make an official declaration of the cause of a miller's death. But first he must thread the tangled relationships between the sheriff, the village of Priors Holston and the priory that once ruled it. As a simple task takes a turn to the political, what seems obvious isn't and what appears safe turns out to be more dangerous than he could imagine.

1300s - THE CROWN IN THE HEATHER (The Bruce Trilogy) - N. Gemini Sasson

Robert the Bruce faces love, betrayal and unlikely alliances in his rebellious bid for the empty throne of Scotland. But freedom, throne and wife together are not so easily won. Keeping his crown against Edward Longshanks' son and new King of England -- even with the aid of the brilliant James Douglas -- may mean giving up what Robert loves most: his beloved Elizabeth de Burgh.

1800s - A STORM HITS VALPARAISO - David Gaughran

The Spanish Empire holds South America firmly in its grasp. Only a ragtag force of adventurers, mercenaries and prostitutes would be fool enough to make a bid for freedom: two brothers torn apart by love; a slave running for his life; a disgraced British sailor seeking redemption; and José de San Martín, an Argentine general who deserts the Spanish Army to lead a bloody revolt against his former masters.

1920s - SANDS OF TIME (Out of Time Series) - Monique Martin

High-spirited Elizabeth Cross and her brilliant Professor of the Occult husband, Simon, are in 1920 Cairo on a special assignment for the Council for Temporal Studies: Find a missing pocket watch and bring it back to the present. But a shadowy foe is also on the hunt ... and after far more than a watch. The price for success this time just might be their lives.

1940s - WOLF HOOK - Michael Wallace

Sometimes in war, a good man can be on the wrong side. Jim Heydrich, the nephew of a Gestapo kingpin -- yet uncertain where his loyalties lie -- finds himself a suspect of both the Nazis and the Resistance. His harrowing experience sets the stage for this immersive mystery that follows Jim across occupied Holland and Italy ... right under the nose of the SS itself.

It’s 1194 and Sir Faucon de Ramis, the shire’s newly appointed Keeper of the Pleas, must do his duty and make an official declaration of the cause of a miller’s death.

Saddled with a clerk who names Faucon his ‘penance, the shire’s first Crowner must thread the tangled relationships between the sheriff, the village of Priors Holston and the priory that once ruled it. As a simple task takes a turn to the political, what seems obvious isn’t and what appears safe turns out to be more dangerous than he could imagine

It really hurts me to give this book only a four because it is such a delight to read. But i would be remiss if I scored it higher. I am a demanding reader. Authors expect us to pay money for their books. Therefore I think they owe us perfection. Domning comes pretty close.

It is a compelling story from the very beginning. I found myself wanting to know motives immediately. What was driving these people? Well, having met Rannulf previously I already knew that he could not bear to be separated from his beloved wife. More power to him. May more men feel that way.

All of the characters are well developed, even the most minor. There is some interesting tidbit about each one. Even ones I think I would dislike forever turn out to have redeeming features. Ones whose side I thought I would be on turn out to have dark sides. One walks off and I really hope that one comes back.

Domning does her research. I really appreciate that in a writer of historical fiction. My own academic training is in the history of the pre-Reformation period. I once read a novel set in the 1950s. I think I read this book in the late 80s. I have long since forgotten the name of the author or the novel but she had her heroine sauntering in JFK airport. While this may disclose my age to the discerning reader, this detail incensed me. For one thing, memorial names are not given to something during a person's lifetime and for another, in the 1950s that airport was known as Idlewild Airport. So in a story set in the 1950s to call the airport JK is an historical anachronism.

I mention all this because Domning is guilty of an anachronism and I don't forgive those in historical fiction. She mentions a capuchin on page 2 or 3. They did not exist in 1194. It did not exist until Matteo De Bascio invented it in the sixteenth century. [...]

Had she not made this one mistake, I would have so given this book a 5. I really wanted to. Bit all my teachers always graded me down for my mistakes.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 5 Totally Different Historical Novels 18 juin 2014
Par D. G. Houk - Publié sur

Focus of each novel was on totally different subject, so by the time one has read all 5, somewhat difficult to recall plot of the earlier ones, but hours spent reading them were well worth the time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Loved Season of the Raven! 21 avril 2014

Denise Domning is a truly gifted writer who, just as Mozart connected his notes and melodies, combines her words into an art so moving and beautiful, it's impossible to fathom how such images can be received from a printed page. Through Domning's gorgeous language and smooth as glass storytelling, I was incapable of reading anything else until I had completed this novel. And if that's not enough, Ms. Doming always researches so deeply into her subject matter that readers can't help but learn about fascinating but obscure laws and customs of the time. Read Denise Doming. Always read Denise Domning. She delivers every time.

I have yet to read the others of this boxed set but will be sure to do so!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Wolf Hook Does Not Disappoint! 30 avril 2014
Par iamjoy - Publié sur

From the opening line, this novel grabs the reader and pulls. Michael Wallace crafted a solid historical thriller with engaging characters, good pacing, and surprising twists (some of which really shouldn't have been so surprising). I wonder if Oscar Wilde fans have a richer experience reading this novel, and if there are less obvious allusions to his works. One negative about the novel is that is that sometimes it seemed the characters used contemporary language. "Give me a break" to express exasperation is a more obvious example. Other than some dialogue that anachronistic, the novel was quite believable. As with other Michael Wallace novels, he describes scenes and actions in such a way as to help the reader visualize it.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very good read - five good reads, in fact! 10 mai 2014

I love a good historical novel. I have only begun the first in this group. They are written by different authors, so I can only answer to the first book, I find it enlarging my understanding of medieval law, medicine, and social dynamics. I love to be educated as well as entertained. I highly recommend this series.
