You become enthralled to the young Hittite charioteer who is set out to solve a mystery. I love the time travel as the world is painted around me in this read, where the mystery will take me but there’s more that will keep you turning pages in this one.

The Lightning Horse (Empire at Twilight Book 1) by N.L. Holmes is wonderfully written Historical Fiction that is fast paced and packed with action. I absolutely love all historical genre’s. This author does an amazing job of keeping your attention from the beginning to the end. The attention to detail she has put into this story is simply amazing. There are some twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. This story takes us on a journey to Hittite Empire. If you’re a historical fan then I highly recommend this book. Even if your not a historical genre fan id still highly recommend reading this book . I can promise its worth the read . I can’t wait to read more from this Author.

I enjoyed this historical fiction crime story by N.L. Holmes and as it’s book one in a new series, I look forward to future novels. The story centres around a young Hittite charioteer who discovers that what he believed had been a chariot accident that killed his father and also maimed his grandfather was in fact an act of sabotage aimed at the king. Setting out on an adventure to find his fathers killer, the young man learns that good and evil are often not what they seem. The novel is based in the Hittite empire, present day Turkey, in around 1250 BCe, and the author really bought this era and place to life with their detailed descriptions of time and place. The characters are well defined and interesting and I particularly liked the main character and felt invested in his search for his fathers killer. It is this underlying mystery that runs throughout the whole story, which had enough drama and twists and turns in it to keep me hooked and guessing. There were a lot of characters to keep up with and also place names to remember but the glossary at the back was helpful with this as was the map at the start. I could tell whilst reading the novel that the author had obviously done a lot of research as this comes through in her writing and I liked the fact that there was a historical notes section at the end which confirmed this and tells the reader what is fact and fiction.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Lightning Horse by N.L. Holmes is the first book in the Empire at Twilight series. This is historical fiction with a bit of thriller and mystery thrown in. The author used her experience in archaeology to bring a well-written piece to work. There is a very helpful map at the front and a list of historical notes to refer to as needed. This is about a young Hittite charioteer who learns so much concerning the personalities of man and the pain of loss at a young age. How does he move forward with his life? I will not give more away concerning the plot because I will not be able to stop. There is so much involved and I enjoyed the characters as well as the setting. I look forward to where this series will go in the future and reading more from this author.

This history buff is thrilled to have found Holmes and her treasures. This is my second book by this author and will definitely not be the last I pick up. I thoroughly enjoyed how she entwines drama and adventure into different historical eras and brings them to life. The characters were extremely well written. I felt like I was transported to walk alongside these characters and loved the journey I found. A great piece of historical fiction.

The Lightning Horse (Empire at Twilight Book 1) by N.L. Holmes, is one of my favorite kinds of stories. I love a mystery. But her mysteries aren’t just any mystery. Her mysteries are set in history. Ancient history. More precisely the Hittite period. Not only does she write great stories, the language is beautiful, the world is very descriptive, the imagery is evocative, and her characters are so alive. N. L. Holmes is an author I will not tire of recommending.

The Lightning Horse (Empire at Twilight #1) by N.L. Holmes

This is the second book I’ve read by Holmes and I’ve got to say this is another great read. Holmes has managed to capture my attention with this book and I can’t wait to read the next book of hers.

Tiwatipara, the charioteer, learns from a young age that life isn’t fair. He lost his mother due to child-birth and he lost his father due to an accident with the chariot.

Things are getting worse three years after the accident. Tiwatipara is not himself anymore. He’s ridden with guilt, blaming himself. Things do turn around for him. The quote I chose for Tiwatipara is: “Well, I’m quitting, too. He can’t treat us like that and expect us to do him favors.”

I highly recommend this as Crime book. It’s got twists and turns throughout.

The Lightning Horse (Empire at Twilight Book 1 ) By N.L. Holmes
4 Stars!!!!

This is the first book by this author I have read and I was not let down. I really like books that are based on historical events and peoples. I like how the author was able to bring the characters to life. There was drama mixed in with bits of intrigue and draws the reader in. I was unable to put this book down.

I really like how there are a lot of twist and turns. I also like how this being the first book really sets up the series to come. I found that the author has a unique style and is able to wind the story around the characters and the sort of dangled ending to this first book really leaves the reader wanting more . I will definitely read more from this author as well as this series. I am quite eager to see how it will progress.
