Firstly, I have had a lot of enjoyment perusing the novels from the lists on the site, and had a hard time choosing. So I decided that if I could get the books from my local library and select from my own bookshelves, it would solve the problem.
Here are my chosen books and I will elect for the ROYALTY
Timeline by Michael Crichton
Credo - Melvyn Bragg
The Merlin Trilogy - Mary Stewart
The Lantern Bearers - Rosemary Sutcliff
Daughter of Tintgel Series - Wise Woman Telling
White Nun's Telling
Black Smith's Telling
The Tainted Relic - Simon Beaufort, Bernard Knight etc.
I have had Credo on my bookshelf for sometime, so this has given me the impetus to read the story.
No doubt when I finish reading all of the above, I may be tempted to try some more.
