A lot of the books that I absolutely love are ones that I read a while ago or series that are so long that I don’t review new updates because they wouldn’t make any sense to people who haven’t read the rest of the series.
People of the River by W. Michael Gear
For Fans Of Historical Fiction
The Gears write great historical fiction about Native Americans. They have a lot of books. Most of them are standalone. I recommend finding the one that takes part in your part of the U.S. if you are from here. I really enjoyed this one that took place around a ceremonial site that I drove past every day when I worked at a previous job. The time fram of the stories range from some prehistoric times to some that take place during the Spanish invasion. Most are pre-Columbian.
For Fans Of Historical Fiction and King Arthur
The idea behind this series is simple. What historical events could have inspired the legend of King Arthur? The series starts with two men in the Roman Legions. One is from Britain. He wants to retire and go home and invites his friend to come too. They eventually realize that Rome is going to be abandoning Britain in the next few decades. They set out to build a self sustaining community that will survive the loss of protection from Rome – Camuloud.
The series follows them and their descendants, ending with Merlin and Arthur. I love this series so much that I actually have never reread the books that include Arthur. It hurts to watch him destroy everything that his ancestors worked so hard to build. I reread the early books in the series every so often though. They are amazing.
Moonshine by Alaya Dawn Johnson
For Fans Of Paranormal and Historical Fiction
Zephyr Hollis is a young woman who is involved in all the progressive causes in 1920s New York. This New York includes vampires though. Think 1920s True Blood. There are two books about Zephyr.
For Fans Of Magic and Sarcasm
Harry Dresden is the only wizard in the Chicago phone book when this series started. This series has moved so far away from those days and just keeps getting better and better.
Luncheon of the Boating Party by Susan Vreeland
For Art Lovers
Susan Vreeland’s books take a piece of art and give the historical fiction version of the story behind it.
I haven’t heard of any of these. Thanks for sharing with Small Victories Sunday Linkup!
