Margaret George recommends
Solomon's Crown (2023)
Natasha Siegel
"Romeo and Juliet meets Oscar Wilde in twelfth-century Europe. Solomon's Crown is a work of supreme imagination, wit, and forbidden love that feels timeless, and Natasha Siegel's lyrical language sings. This is truly a unique work and one to be savored."
The Shadow of Perseus (2023)
Claire Heywood
"Re-energizes the Perseus myth . . . By re-interpreting the familiar characters in human terms, Claire Heywood gives new life and a startling new perspective to an old tale. Original and engrossing."
The Witch and the Tsar (2022)
Olesya Salnikova Gilmore
"A rich and vivid tapestry of old Russia in an age when Tsar Ivan the Terrible grappled not only with political foes but with the legendary witch Baba Yaga and her command of magic and pagan gods. An evocative journey into old Russian myth and history, and a poignant exploration of what it means to be both human and immortal."
The Witch's Heart (2021)
Genevieve Gornichec
"A deep journey into the mists of the ancient Norse world of gods, monsters and humans, who shape shift from one to another. But the heart of the story is a witch s passage over many lifetimes and the ultimate sacrifice she makes for those she loves. A timeless tale of great power and artistry."
The Library of Legends (2020)
Janie Chang
"The Library of Legends is a luminous and enthralling story set during a pivotal period in the making of modern China and highlights the Chinese determination to preserve their culture by saving precious historical treasures at great sacrifice. The exploits of historical characters and ancient mythological beings are interwoven in a blend of wonder, courage, and suspense."
The Land Beyond the Sea (2019)
Sharon Kay Penman
"Penman brings the teeming—and scheming—world of the brief, blazing Crusader kingdom to vibrant life, with a cast of characters that includes the royal houses of Europe, the Knights Templar and the Knights Hospitaller, the lords of the Church, Crusader nobility, and the surrounding Saracens. With her shining gift of storytelling, she makes this tapestry a colorful one, one that weaves all the richness of its setting and striving personalities into a stunning and meaningful whole. Elegant, detailed, and panoramic—like the world it describes."
