My pick for historical fiction is Jane Steel, since it takes place in the mid 1800s and has the first Anglo-Sikh war as a topic.
1. A book by a dead author - Jamaica Inn by Daphne DuMaurier
2. YA or children´s title - Ares: Bringer of Death by George O´Connor
3. A blast from the past: historical fiction - Jane Steele by Lindsay Faye
