There are few genres in fiction that lend themselves to getting lost in like historical fiction does. Putting a reader in a new era and a new setting, surrounded by characters uniquely of the period, historical sagas allow readers to enter a different world and explore its expansive corners. Add a truly talented author to that equation and you’re likely to get “lost” in an exceptional historical plot of epic proportions.
