    By far one of the best authors of historical fiction. I have read all his series and collect his hard copies. Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden, Patrick O’Brian, and Mark Twain are my top picks but I still have more books to conquer and more authors to praise.

    Happy Accident Uhtred rules. I don’t usually read series type books. I picked up the first in this series and look forward to every new book.
