Rosemary Sutcliff’s children’s and historical fiction classic The Eagle of the Ninth on Kindle for 99p!

Amazon are selling Rosemary Sutcliff‘s classic historical novel, The Eagle of the Ninth, for the Kindle in the UK for 99p! In the US it is $1.54! This classic of children’s literature is still relevant and readable today, and is a bargain for all you new Kindle owners who can be tempted by historical fiction (or who saw the movie The Eagle earlier this year). On the Amazon site author Ben Kane gave a brief review.

… The Eagle of the Ninth was one of the first historical fiction books I can remember reading as a child, and it instilled in me a great love of all things Roman. When wanting to change career from that of a veterinarian to a writer, Eagle of the Ninth helped inspire me to write Roman fiction. Quite simply, this, in my opinion, is one of the best historical fiction books ever written. Suitable for all ages from 8 or so upwards, it is a stirring read about the pursuit of honour in the face of great danger. Thoroughly recommended.
