If I hadn't read King's Man, this would certainly be on my list but as it is, I now have to put Warlord on there - which should be released next summer!

Warlord - Angus Donald

When Maidens Mourn - C S Harris

The Piccadilly Plot - Susanna Gregory

The Making of a Queen  - Susan Higginbotham

Garment of Shadows - Laurie R King

We've had to wait 50 years after the death of the Danish physicist Niels Bohr to learn something of what he had to say about that mysterious meeting he had with (Nazi) German physicist Werner Heisenberg during World War II---the meeting Michael Frayn dealt with in his play, Copenhagen.  In Bohr's papers, after his death, a letter was found, tucked into a book, but Bohr's instructions were it was not to be made public until 50 years later.  Next year, 2012, is the year.

Death of Kings by Cornwell

It's just not fair that the UK got it 4 months ago!

I really can't think of one I'm dying to get my hands on. No Chadwick and Penman expected and I've yet to dip into Cornwell.

You need a "good" series.  You will totally love Uthred's snarkiness.

My husband stayed up late last night to finish Death of Kings (I had ordered it from the UK for him) - he said it doesn't have as much action as some of the others, but he really enjoyed Uhtred's story.

I'm not sure there's a whole lot I'm dying to get my hands on either.  There's some stuff that sounds interesting though, but it's not like I don't already have enough to read ...
