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 FieldRobert Brian Field from Born York, Yorkshire wrote on December 27, 2011 on 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).

Thanks to everybody for all the positive feedback. You'll be happy to know that I've sent KINGDOM off to my editor, and have received the artwork for the jacket. KINGDOM was great fun to write, and contains a few twists that even surprised me. When I know the official release date, I'll post it on my site.

Really good read and the historical note at the end was helpful to distinguish fact from conjecture. I was reading this book till the early hours every morning and can't wait for Kingdom.

I picked the book up on the off chance, and what a great decision. I found myself reading this until the early hours every night, the book is seriously compulsive! Can't wait for the next installment.

Hi Jack: I checked out Siege from the HP library and enjoyed it immensely. It turns out the copy was donated by your grandfather. Both my children are at MIS and will go to HPHS in the next few years. I look forward to reading your other and future work.

Absolutely fantastic! Eagle is simply stunning. Historically impressive, the story is one set to grace any book shelf. A great read and I can't wait for the next episode!
