Hi there - thanks for your kind words; it's great to know that you enjoyed The Forgotten Legion so much. For a similar vein of book, try Simon Scarrow's Eagle series about two centurions who take part in the invasion of Britain in 44 AD. I think eight have now been published, and they're excellent. Or Steven Pressfield's Gates of Fire about the amazing battle of the 300 Spartans against the Persians at Thermopylae. Best wishes Ben Kane
David, you're so right. Ben Kane's novel is terrific. Since I am a huge fan of Steven Pressfield's writing I would of course agree with Ben on Gates of Fire but also suggest any other of his (historical fiction) novels - even the latest, Killing Rommel - although that one is a WWII story. I don't know of anybody who is so close to the real thing in fiction writing. His stories will stay with you for a long time. They go deep. ANother great book is The Eagle and The Raven by Pauline Gedge. It is well researched and full of adventure with marvelous characters and a great storyline. Best wishes. André
Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, Amazon tells me that your book is unavailable on Kindle in the United States, so it appears to be region limited. Do you know if this is going to be addressed sometime in the future?
Hi Jeffrey Sorry about the delay. The reason I can see the book as available on Kindle is apparently because Amazon.com recognises that I'm logging on from the UK. It's not available in the USA because St. Martin's Press, my US publishers, didn't buy the digital rights from my UK publishers. It's all very complicated! It will be available sometime, but I don't know when. You could try buying it from Amazon.co.uk...if that works. Apologies it's not easier for you.
Hi Jeffrey - a long delay, and I should have posted here before, but all of my books, bar Hannibal, which hasn't been published yet in the States, are now available on Kindle and other e-reader formats. Thanks.
