Books finished recently

Eragon and Eldest by Christopher Paolini. Can't wait to see the film and read the 3rd book. Awesome read from a young author.

The Gladiators by G J Whyte-Melville. Set in AD 65-70 it follows the story of a young Briton slave and a young Jewish lass in Rome and then in Jerusalem as Titus conquered it. Some very interesting historical stuff while a gripping read at the same time.

Safely Home by Randy Alcorn. Fantastic story of the persecuted church in China. Also exposes the forced labour prison camps (Laogai) used to make Christams tree lights amongst other things. For more research on Laogai check out EPM.

Into a Dark Realm by Raymond Feist. The next book in the series - this guy writes books like you eat hot dinners!
