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).
Wonderful read, marvellous story, read it thrice already in 1 week, unable to put down. Always amazed with the stories from the Crusaders era, please don't keep us waiting for the 2nd book!
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.
just loaned eagle from my libary its one of the best history books i have ever read as a history buff it was well writen i loved it more please it will be a long wait for books two and three mfs
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!
I have just read the eagle book and really enjoyed the book. I really like the way you describe the characters and the build up to the battles in the book. I can't wait till march next year when the second installment comes out. Thank you so much for giving people this wonderful masterpiece.
Jack Just a line to say what a great book Eagle is, great read. Have not yet read Seige but I am on the lookout for a signed copy, as I collect 1st editions. Look forward to Kingdom and will be placing my order with Goldsborough Books as soon as it comes on Books for future release. Good luck with Eagle – hope it is a great success for you. you certainly deserve it. Regards John
Hi Jack, I have read both books Siege and Eagle. I thought they were both great! Can't wait to start reading Kingdom when it's out. I really like the idea of a saladin trilogy. I enjoyed the characters in eagle and really enjoy the way you portray them. Your style is definitely my type of reading…keep going and Well done! Thanks Carlo
please please can we have part 2 of the saladin trlogy the 1st book was awesome but getting ready for the next 1 many thanks
Eagle was a great book. There was also a rather nice build of character which is rather rare for this kind of novels. I can't wait till the second novel appears. And don't you dare killing poor John because I like him too much. I'll come over to where ever you life and spank you (I'm not serious of course). Well done.
Hi Jack. I have just finished reading 'Eagle'. Phew! what a read, I could not put it down. Just as good as 'Seige'. I can't wait for the sequel to find out what happens to John. Keep up the good work, Shirley.
The wait wonâ€™t be too long, Mike. The next book, KINGDOM, will be out on 29 March 2012. If you want a sneak peak, then you can check out the paperback version of EAGLE, which is due out 10 November. Chapter 1 of KINGDOM will be included at the end. And Chris, Iâ€™m glad you enjoyed the book! Hopefully Cate and I will be able to visit you and in Colorado soon. All my best to Amy and Raya.
Hey, Jack! I just finished Seige and I wanted you to know that I am proud of you for writing a book that kept me wanting to read more. This was the first non-fiction read for me in over ten years, simply because Amy ordered your book from someplace and next thing you know it is in my living room. Keep up the good work and say hi to Cate for us. Chris
No,no,no. You can't end it like that, Talk about a "ciffhanger" ending… so how long do we have to wait for the next installment? really enjoyed it.. Thank you. Mike.
Hi I have just started reading Eagle about 150 pages in and am gripped. Really looking foward to the trilogy and am enjoying the book tremendously.Dont normally read this type of fiction but you have a convert.
I finished read Siege today and i was like,man..why did longo died when he and sofia finally escaped from Mehmed. Then I realize it was adapted from true story. JACK HIGHT…You're truly a great novelist. I was carried away by your novel siege and looking forward to read you next book. EAGLE. Keep on dude..Leo from Malaysia.
Thanks to everyone for the kind words. Rest assured that your feedback is inspiring me to finish KINGDOM post haste. As for where you can buy EAGLE in the States… it has not yet been published in the USA, but you can order it online from amazon.co.uk.
