Being in quarantine had one big advantage: after long, long years, I finally had time to read longer books. Like, really, really long books. If you're familiar with Ken Follett's writing, you might have an idea how long.

Blog Tour: “Song for A Lost Kingdom II – Love Never Surrenders” by Steve Moretti
Music, history and a hint of magic... what more can a novel have? That's the dream, at least for me. (Well, mystery is my other soft spot, but one can't have everything, right?) That's why I agreed to be part of the blog tour for "Song for a Lost Kingdom" about a year ago, and as I expected, I ended up loving it! (You can read my review if you click on the title!)
Today, I'm here to share the sequel with you, a book that I have waited for ever since I've finished the first one.
‘Storytellers’ by Bjorn Larssen
This is the second "I'm so sorry" post I doing this week. As the other one (here), this review was supposed to be part of a blog tour. I owe a huge apology to Rachel and the author.
Honestly, I don't really know what I expected from this book. It sounded great, it had a beautiful cover, it seemed to be about telling stories. What's not to like?
Well, it was everything it could've been and more.
‘The Saxon Plague’ by Penny Ingham
Last week my blog was one of the many stops on the 'The Saxon Wolves' tour, and as I said then, the story seemed to form a unity with the sequel (not so much because of a cliffhanger, but because it's basically one story arc), and that made me want to read it forward right away.
So... that's what I did!
Here's my review of the sequel, 'The Saxon Plague'!
Blog Tour: ‘The Saxon Wolves’ by Penny Ingham
Today I bring you a historical novel that's set in the 5th century, in the chaotic times after the Roman Empire has fallen. I discovered this book because of the blog tour, thanks to Rachel's Random Resources. Let's drink a hot coffee (or tea, if that suits your taste better), and read everything there is to know about the book, including my review! 😉
‘Blackberry and Wild Rose’ by Sonia Velton
It's been a while since the last time I read historical fiction, and I love them, so I decided 'Blackberry and Wild Rose' was going to be my next read. And I loved it! This is a wonderful and promising debut novel, and I loved the journey to another time, another place. Oh, I'd missed time-traveling by books so much! It's good to be back.
This time, in 18th century London.
‘Gods and Legions’ by Michael Curtis Ford
It's time I write about this historical fiction book that I've actually read a while ago now... Grab your smelling coffee, and run through my thoughts! This is not going to be very long, I think. It's... compact. 🙂
‘Song for a Lost Kingdom’ by Steve Moretti
Aaaand my REVIEW is coming!!! Finally. So, put your paws on your autumn-flavored warm coffee, and let's see what there is to talk about!
First of all, I am so sorry that it took so much time! I've been very busy... This one was originally supposed to be a blog tour post
‘Dying for Rome: Lucretia’s Tale’ by Elisabeth Storrs
Hey, darlings! This time I'm reviewing a short story of historical fiction. If you like your coffee with a whole mug, drinking slowly, it might be enough until you finish this whole e-book! 😉
‘The Ten Thousand’ by Michael Curtis Ford
Finally I got to write a review again, this time about a historical fiction set in ancient Greece. Let's have a coffee, and see what it was like! ☺️
