I just finished, what must be, one of the greatest books I've read this year. Wow, wow and wow again! The author has done an incredible job of describing the beautiful culture and history of Korea in this book. What a fantastic story!
Very excited to start this book. It's my first book by this author as well.
And so my Ghengis Khan adventure comes to an end. I have loved reading this series and have learnt so much about the Khan Dynasty. The books were brilliantly written.
This series is an absolute must read for any historical fiction lover (although these books were quite close to true-history). Absolute 5 star!
This is the 3rd book in the Khan Series. I can honestly say that I have been hooked from book one. This story has just gotten better, and I constantly had to remind myself that most of what was written, actually happened. This author has a unique gift for turning historical events into a truly magnificent adventure. I feel very honoured to have read this great story.
I'm knee-deep into the Ghengis adventure. Wow, what an amazing tale of a visionary and a brute, all in one.
The author has done a magnificent job in writing this series. The research alone that has gone into ensuring this story stays true to the original, is remarkable. Absolute 5 star writing.
Starting the second book in the Ghengis series. So far it has been awesome. Really looking forward to continuing this phenomenal adventure 👀
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The storyline is truly unique and takes you on an adventure that mixes the love of books, mixed with a hint of magic, all wrapped in a beautiful written tale that keeps you turning the page for more.
Just started this book. I initially fell in love with the cover, it is beautiful.
I'm 75 pages in, and the premise of the story is so intriguing and unique. I cannot wait to see where this book takes me.
This is the Part 2 in Minette Walters' Black Death Series. Oh, what a wonderfully, brilliant read this was. A historical fiction book, set in the 14th Century, Old England. The author has a phenomenal way with character development, and I could not read this series fast enough. She adapted the language to match the time, and, as a reader, I got lost in this wonderful tale of loss, courage and survival.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author has a magnificent way of developing the characters and the story takes you on a journey back into the 14th Century in such a well-told manner, it's as if you are part of it. I have already started Part II, The Turning of Midnight, as I just can get enough of this great Tale of The Black Death.
What a phenomenal book this was! I have read quite a few books on the topic of the Holocaust, but this is by far the absolute best book of it's kind I have ever read. What makes this book even more distinguishable is the fact that it is a True Story, every fact, every event, every chapter all really happened. It's a history book, written in a novel form, and an absolute must read. I feel honour to have read this amazing story.
I'm about halfway through this book, and so far, this must be one of the best Holocaust books I have ever read. It tells the true story of a father and son that survived the Holocaust. The entire book is extremely well researched and every word is based on actual events. An absolute must-read for any Holocaust book fan.
This book is both heart warming and heart wrenching, all at the same time. One starts one with a faint dislike for the main character, Eleanor. The story moves that feeling to a strong "falling in love", and before you know it, your heart is broken. But, like any great story, the ending leaves you wanting more...
I truly enjoyed this book!
One of the most surprisingly, brilliant and wonderful books I've read in a long time. This book is truly a "page turner" and I could not wait to get deeper into the lives of each character. A beautiful and interesting storyline, wonderfully written. This one will stay with me for quite some time.
What a wonderful surprise, this book was. I absolutely loved and enjoyed every word I read. It is a very detailed, thoughtful and smartly written book that will leave you wanting more. I'm still on a "Circe-High". Wow!
Happy birthday to me, from me 💜💜💜
Best reading company ever. My little Cersei 💜💜
I finally completed the challenge that I had set for myself! To complete all of Wilbur Smith's series's. I have read the Courtney series, the Ballentyne series, the Hector series and the Egypt series, all in a row.

A brilliant book. Very well researched. It is the type of book you will read again and again.
