This is a fascinating read! It's a love story between a spy and his young protege, during WW2. The main character, Kydon Schmidt, is a handsome and charming fellow, so it's not shocking that his protege/helper would fall in love with him! (Think Indiana Jones, but with a romantic bent.) If this guy were real, I would probably swoon my way into his arms, too! The supporting characters are fleshed out, although you definitely get the idea that there's more to them than meets the eye. What's actually surprising is that the story is fantastic, and thrilling. OK... it's not that surprising that it's fantastic and thrilling. I love Nazi spy thrillers, and Mr. Legleitner certainly knows what he is doing! Unfortunately, there are only 2 volumes (at least in e-book format, there's at least one more in paperback format), and I really think that there's enough story contained in these characters, especially Kydon Schmidt, for another ten volumes! I would have settled for a minimum of five volumes without complaining too much. Definitely worth double the price, easily. It's just a shame that the author passed away a number of years ago. When I first read this book (in paperback format), I couldn't put it down, and now the e-book version will have a permanent place on my nook's "shelf." I cannot recommend this e-book enough, especially at it's current LOW price! Maybe we can get them to release the 3rd volume in e-book format?
