The Copper Sign – A Medieval Story

Starting 6 Dec 2011, Katia Fox’s book The Copper Sign has become available in English.

I read the German version about a year ago and was immediately captured by Katia’s writing style. In the end, I read all three books, with the first two The Copper Sign and The Silver Falcon being my favorites.

The second book also got me interested in falconry, which prompted a visit to the same falconry, where Katia had done her research on the topic.

The Copper Sign is a historical novel, set in the 13th century in medieval England. Ellenweore, the main character, is a young girl aspiring to become a sword smith. She manages to enter an apprenticeship and dreams of forging the perfect sword for the King someday.

She has to overcome many obstacles on her journey, all the while depicted as a strong protagonist. This historical fiction, with interesting tidbits along the way, makes for a very good read. The writing is so good that I am contemplating reading the same book once more – in English, this time.

Book Reading with Author Katia Fox

Yesterday evening, I attended a book reading by the author Katia Fox at the book store Hugendübel in Bad Homburg.

We had been in contact for a while and last night I finally got to meet her (she had just moved back to her hometown, Bad Homburg) and I am very pleased to know her books will become available to English readers on the U.S. market as of next year.

Because of her second book Der silberne Falke, I somewhat became interested in falconry and visited Falkenhof Feldberg, where she had done her research. The falconry is close to home, up on the Feldberg in the Taunus mountains.

Her book reading had close to a full house with clerks having to bring extra chairs. It was a pleasure to meet Katia and learn more about her books, research, and the author herself. The setting for her books is England around the 13th century.

The following books are available on
