Blood Will Tell won't be published until 2017, in the meantime here are some examples of novels that I love, and authors I enjoy reading. (Just click on the book covers to be taken to the amazon.co.uk pages)
Ben Aaronovitch - PC Peter Grant series. Think CSI meets Harry Potter on the mean streets of London town. The series follows the adventures of Peter Grant, an officer in the Metropolitan Police; who, following an unexpected encounter with a ghost, is recruited into the small branch of the Met that deals with magic and the supernatural.
Jodi Taylor - Chronicles of St Mary's. Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet.
Follow the catastrophe curve from eleventh-century London to World War I, and from the Cretaceous Period to the destruction of the Great Library at Alexandria.
Robin Hobb - Farseer Trilogy, Tawny Man Trilogy, The Liveship Traders and The Rain Wild Chronicles.
If you like George R.R. Martin's A song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) you'll love the world that Hobb has created.
Diana Gabaldon - Outlander series. Yes, this is on the telly box now. Yes, it is very popular. BUT the books are amazing.
I love Jamie Fraser with a passion.
