Historical Fiction

The Forerunner Series by Jay Veloso Batista | Books 1-2-3

The Forerunner series has everything and more that I like in a good book: characters you can sink your teeth into, that are fully developed and multifaceted; romance; violence, but not without purpose; excellent pacing, with lots of twists and turns in the plot; drama, drama, and more drama; power struggles and intrigue.

The Promise by Damon Galgut

A generational narrative of disillusionment and lost hope in post-Apartheid South Africa, via the viewpoint of a white family unwilling to do the right thing, dragged down by their stubbornness in giving up the old ways. Damon Galgut's story appears to follow an intriguing and mysterious country's rich and impressive literary history. In every way, The Promise lives up to its name and more.

SHE – The Forgotten Epoch by Dr Santosh Singh

Dr. Santosh Singh is a master at getting into the minds of historical figures; she takes the events and narrates them from the perspective of how the said character may have perceived them. She knows her material inside and out, and on top of that, she has an ear for dialogue pacing and an eye for detail.

The Indian Emerald by Archana Pathak

The Indian Emerald is an uplifting, atmospheric, informative tale about taking chances, moving on, and discovering one’s true self. I highly recommend it to fans of historical fiction with dual timelines.

Every Star in the Sky by Danielle Singleton

Every Star in the Sky is an intensely romantic story of the power of true love across time, across social conventions, and ultimately conquering all. The story is very simple and easy to read, but it captivates and touches the reader in a profound way. The love between Rebecca and Richard, from the time they first met to the end, is overwhelming.

The Glimpse by Lis Bensley

The Glimpse is a novel that delves into the intricacies and angst that undoubtedly burns through some relationships - maybe none more so than mother and daughter. At its core, this story explores the notion that being a mother doesn’t mean being perfect; it comes down to love, sacrifice and sheer will.

AgniBaan : Guardians of the Fire Chamber by S. Venkatesh

Built around two interwoven stories, one from the 535 CE and one present day, the book is set in Egypt, US and India. Author S Venkatesh mixes a decent understanding of folklore and history and came up with a great conspiracy in this fast paced quest for the AgniBaan.
