    1. I got this for free and is was much better than I expected. An alternate history involving fantasy elements and a central character who is a catholic priest.

    2. This is an absolute ripping yarn, as ripping a yarn as you are likely to find, and unlike some TV series, it’s steeped in solid historical detail.

    4. I highly recommend Lars Walker's latest _Hailstone Mountain_. (especially as a 2.99 e-book). Lars is becoming one of the best Christian fantasy/historical fiction writers of this generation.In this novel, our narrator, Father Ailil and Erling Skalgsson, a very real historical character sail north along the North-Way to the Saami country north of the Arctic Circle, in the Year of Our Lord 1006, to rescue a girl stolen by the thralls of the mysterious Children of the Mountain.A much truer depictio [...]
