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.

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!

Mr Hight. Thank you for a very exciting book, The Eagle. I am a student/fan of the Crusades (reading - Runciman, Gibbon, Setton) and I am lookign forward to your second novel in this series. Once again, thank you.

Hi Jack, Have just finished reading EAGLE. It has to be one of the best books I have read on the Crusades, and especially Saladin. I am a retired person who ought to be doing chores at home, but I found I couldn't put your book down, so am now having to catch up on them. Thank you for making reading such a pleasure, and I can't wait for the second book in the Trilogy to be released in July 2012. Once again Jack, thank you very much. Regards Graham Pegg

Hi Jack, just read "Eagle"-great read, but just two minor corrections if I may be so bold!! 1)Page 96-"scythe", is 2 handled with large blade at right angles to handle, "sickle" is what John was using(Wikapedia has good pictures) 2) Celsus AD 200- described Cataract treatment as practiced by Romans. Oculists instruments have been found in many archaeological sites in the U K. Even possible that Chinese, Indians and Greeks could also do the same. Regards, Phil Rowbotham. PS: Looking forward to the next book.

Thanks to all of you for your kind words. I'm glad you have enjoyed reading EAGLE as much as I enjoyed writing it. I feel privileged each and every day to be able to write for a living. I have an official release date for KINGDOM: 19 July 2012. It's a bit of a wait, I know, but on the bright side, the wait for HOLY WAR, the final book in the trilogy, should be much shorter. I hope to have it out in March 2013. And finally, regarding Humphrey's ARMAGEDDON… I have not read the book, but from what I can tell, it seems to be focused very tightly on the siege itself. My book, SIEGE, begins in 1448 and the first half deals with the events leading up to the siege, so that might interest you. I suspect my book also deals with the Turkish side of the conflict more than Humphrey's. Naturally, I think you should read my book as well, but maybe after a wait. Reading two books about the fall of Constantinople in one year seems a bit much.

1st of your books I have read was 'Eagle',looked at Siege but it's summary is almost identical to CC Humphries 'Armageddon'(which I have read)....your perspective would be appreciated as I look forward to 'Kingdom. Bruce Smith

I came across your book at Virgin Megastore in Beirut,Like usual i read few pages from Eagle's before then i bought it right away. I am fascinated by the history of the birthplace of civilization and i've read many historical books mainly about the Crusaders and the Romans,I live in the Byblos area of Lebanon and i pass by the crusader castles and churches every day, i can even feel their presence in the ruins your Book Eagle brought their history back alive, i loved it and read it within a week, i've checked yesterday at Barnes & Nobel for Kingdom to be told it is not out yet!!!waiting Excellent Work.

EAGLE - what a good read I could not bear to put it down. My housework suffered. It was the last thing I did and the first thing in the morning - must read more. When is KINGDOM going to be published - I really cannot wait.

Looking forward to part 2 of this trilogy. I read Eagle in less than a week, couldn't stop reading it, it kept me awake till the small hours of the morning. Wonderful book, wish it never finished...missed it. Thank-you Jack for such a wonderful book. Keep up the good work.
Robert Brian Field Robert Brian Field from Born York, Yorkshire wrote on December 27, 2011 at 3:12 pm:
My compliments on "Eagle" I thought the quality of research and the interweaving of fiction with fact was excellent. True also of "Siege". Like you I have an affinity to naval history, ie C S Forester and all who follow in his footsteps, especially since my own career started in the Merchany Navy. My greatest pleasure in retirement are reading books by authors like yourself. Regards Brian Field. (Now living in the shadow of the Humber Bridge).
