Wow! May I say that for someone who wrote a review that had me - in itself- spellbound, about a book that you classify as "exemplary" -it must indeed be "out of this world" to read! Thank you! As a newbie, I'm not sure I could ever match your literary skills, but you've certainly set a bar to aspire to!

I gauge an author's writing skills if he could make the readers visualize the scenes as if they are real, especially if the genre is fantasy where out of this world characters and places abound. Based on the positive reviews, I think the author succeeded.

I like the review, the book doesn't fit my taste but I wouldn't mind a motion picture version of the book (series).

The featured review is amazing. Historical facts and fiction. I'm not sure if I'll read it. It sounds very interesting.

Any book about the ' holiest city ' in the world is always marked with heart rising tension especially when it deals to historical events of the city , which is the most disputed city in the planet . .

:angelic-cyan: :angelic-cyan: Reuben 92 lives up to his biblical name. Quite an exquisite review of a book written by an excellent historian. They both showcase Jerusalem's magnificent past and the strange struggle between spirituality and worldly kingdoms.

I've downloaded the Kindle sample book by Helena Schrader, Envoy of Jerusalem.

I also read, not skim through, the 'About This Book' and, of course, Helen Schrader's stellar author biography. Very impressive! She reminds me of my old-time-favorite Francine Rivers' Mark of the Lion Trilogy.

I believe Helen Schrader histotical fiction novels, and other works of hers will be in my library very soon.

Thank you so much for your great work of review on Envoy of Jerusalem.
