    I am looking for books set in the middle ages.

    I'll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there's evidence of any thinking going on inside it. (Terry Prattchet)

    You can try Peter Tremayne's novels about sister Fidelma. They are set at seventh-century Ireland and are historicaly accurate (well, most of the time).

    Something by Stephen R. Lawhead could be a possibility.He has several popular series of historical novels set in the Middle Ages.Try googling him for more information.

    Great books Septimus, and everyone should certainly read them,but I think your English betrays you.They are Middle Earth not Middle Ages.
    If I'm wrong let me know because your English is certainly better than my Spanish.

    I'd suggest the OP take a glance at The Pillars of The Earth, by Ken Follett, and it's sequel, World Without End (which I am currently reading).

    Both books (the first toward the early Dark Ages, and the latter toward the 14th and so on centuries) take place in the Middle Ages.

    A VERY impressive duo, IMO. Ken Follett's masterpieces.

    I have read both of these books. They are both excellent. Pillars of The Earth is by far the best book I have ever read.
