This is my favourite genre for reading. I prefer series as I can really get to know the main chacters. I have found that many of these authors have carried out extensive historial researh Have learned more about historial events through them than any other way.
I know other people on GN enjoy these, so that we could start our own thread to be able to pass on to each other suggestions to read or listen to (many are on audio books).
I will start off with the following and hope others will add to it
Lindsey Davis - Falco and Flavia Alba book set in Rome in first century BCE (not the most historially accurate, but great fun).
Steven Saylor sub Roma series - each book centred on large historial event in Rome
Ellis Peters Cadfael series England/Wales 12th century
C J Sansom Shardlake series in Tudor times
Susan Gregory Matthew Batholomew
Andrew Taylor Series set in reign of Charles 11
E. M. Powell two series set in time of Henry 11
Peter Tremayne Sister Fidelia series set in 7th Century Ireland
There are very many more ranging from those set in Egyptian times, all over the world. Be good if other people could list some they have rfead and enjoyed.
