It's great when receive emails from our authors, still excited about having found new reviews of their work, and none moreso than our recent message from Nick Brown, author of the Luck Bringer series.
The Luck Bringer series is set in ancient Greece and draws upon the academic studies in Archaeology and Ancient history to which Nick has spent many years immersed. Having launched his book 'Luck Bringer' back in 2013 we received a message of excitement from Nick, as a resurgence in it's popularity sparked a feature article on Victoria Blake's blog - victoriablakewriter.wordpress.com.
Reading this book reminded me how much I enjoyed fiction set in the classical age and how little of it I have read since I devoured Mary Renault, Rosemary Sutcliffe and Robert Graves in my teens. At the beginning I became slightly confused by the politics but that ironed itself out soon enough.I loved the descriptions of the triremes and what it was like to be in one when it rammed another ship. The moment Mandrocles puts on his heavy helmet and his world narrows to the eye slits will stay with me for a long time. If you want to know what it was like to fight at the Battle of Marathon my guess is this is as close as you’ll get. Luck Bringer is an example of a vivid imagination fertilizing the seeds of detailed historical research. A great read. And I do love that cover.
Firmly establishing himself as a credible author, and one with a wealth of factual knowledge to bolster his novels with elements of fact, true life and real events, Nick has continued to promote his work on every level and is enjoying the rewards.
Why are reviews so important?
