Just finshed the 'Kingdom' Absolultely wonderful and can't wait for # 3. When can we expect it?
Hello Mr. Hight, I have read your book name Eagle. To be frank, this is the book that satisfied me for the first time. The story line and characters is great. Now, I'm about to purchase your latest book name Kingdom. Couldn't wait to read it! Regards.
Hi Jack, I have just finished Seige and wanted to say what a fantastic book it was. Thank you!
Jack, Just wanted to write and congratulate you a masterpiece of a book. I felt deeply honoured to read your story having gone through a difficult change in my life and reading 'Kingdom' enabled me to forget about reality for a moment and get absorbed in such a fine read. You're an exceptionally talented writer and I personally congratulate you on the ability you have to construct an amazing book. I really look forward to the final chapter of the Saladin trilogy. All the Best. James
Hi, just wanted to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading both "SIEGE and "EAGLE" and am looking forward immensely to the release of "KINGDOM". Your ability to convey the intensity of the situations that Yusuf and John find themselves in is excellent. It is a fascinating period of history and one that I am sure, we could learn valuable lessons from, in todays uncertain climate.
I m enjoying reading EAGLE very much and am especially amused with what your characters have to say in Arabic as many of their words sound like my language Maltese. Looking forward for the next book.
Just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed reading SIEGE & EAGLE and looking forward to KINGDON. Have been interested in Saladin since watching Ridley Scott's KINGDON OF HEAVEN. I like the balanced view both you guys have of this fascinating period of history. Keep up the good work.
Hi Jack, Thank you for your "Eagle" - great book which taught me a lot about Islam and history of Middle East. Couldn't put that book down, so had to read it ina day! As a Finn, I really must recommend you a book called "Sinuhe the Egyptian" written by Mika Waltari.
Thanks for bringing the crusades to life and giving a balanced view of the intrigues that made up this important part of our past.I have just come across you books and they have helped me get through a boring time being laid up with a bad back ,they have kept me going and educated me at the same time. Thanks Eric
Thanks to everybody who wrote over the past couple of months. Sorry for the delayed response. I've been busy finishing up KINGDOM (due out in July!) and getting a start on HOLY WAR, the final book in the Saladin Trilogy. It's always a delight to hear back from readers who enjoy my work, and I'm incredibly pleased that EAGLE has helped reshape some of your thoughts on the Crusades and Islam. For me, too, writing the Saladin Trilogy has been a wonderful process of discovery. Thanks to Matteo and Hindu for your suggestions on my next series. I'm in the process of drawing up ideas now, so stay tuned for what's next.
Hi Jack Hight I have read Siege and Part 1 to Eagle and thoroughly enjoyed both books: you certainly bring history to life and there are characters in the stories whom I both love and admire, and who I hate and despise! My favourite was Siege as it was the first book I read from you and I loved how Constantinople really was under threat of total destruction to the Ottomans and it was up to the individuals on both sides to determine the coming events. In Siege my favourite character was John as displays courage and a loyalty I have never seen in any book. Whatever you are doing, keep doing it! You are my favourite author and I am desperate to read your next installment! Maybe after you have finished the Eagle Trilogy, maybe you should do an entire different angle: perhaps the Romans invading Gaul, or the Saxons against the Celts or maybe the Spanish Conquistadors battling in the New World. The thing I love about your books most is how you develop your characters that I can really relate to. As I live in the Middle East, in an Islamic world, I could relate to how John and Yusuf (Or should i say Saladin) felt when they were trying to get to Tell Bashir, or when they were battling out in the desert. You also give the two perspectives in all your stories and I really like that. A HUGE Thank you from You Number 1 Fan, Just continue what your doing!

Hi Jack, A few months ago, after reading some books by Angus Donald I asked him if he could recommend any books about the Crusades from the Muslim point of view. I read Siege last month and enjoyed it. I have just finished reading Eagle and thought it was absolutely brilliant!!! Once I was half way through I was struggling to put it down and couldn't wait to get stuck back into it! It has really made me consider some of the views that I have. It has also really broadened my knowledge not just of the Crusades but also of the history of Islam and Christianity. Thank you for writing it and I can't wait for your next book - which is on pre-order!! Regards, Daniel
Jack Thank you so much for Eagle. As a Christian it has made me question not only my actions but also those of past saints. It is not an easy time but a necessary quest I believe. I look forward to your future missives.
hi Jack, just to say I really enjoyed eagle, I couldn't put the book down. and I am eagerly waiting for the publication of kingdom. while I am waiting I have started to read seige which i too am enjoying. regards, ann
Dear Jack Haight! I am writing to you from Moscow in Russia last Unas out your wonderful novel, The Siege. I wish you further success and I hope we have in Russia will leave your other novels.
Jack... I must say, that you are my favourite author in the world. I love they way you write, seriously. And then I love, that you write about the crusades! thank you so much!
Is it possible that your books might be available through Amazon in the U.S. as well as through the U.K. Amazon? It would be more convenient for Kindle users. Thanks
Jack, am so happy to hear the we only have to wait a few more months for kingdom. I enjoyed eagle and siege so much, that I lent it out (something I don't normally do) to a friend of mine that was ill with cancer. Sadly we lost her last month, but your novels made her pain so much more bearable! She did not stop talking about you novels. Thought I would mention it, as your work had an incredible effect on her during her last year. Best wishes from south Wales.
Mr. Hight, my boss has been trying to access your books via kindle, to no avail. As an avid reader of this genre of literature, he would greatly appreciate the ability to access the e-books. Thanks!
