And to think King of Kings is only $9.99 on that other bookseller's website. Why does the ebook cost more than twice as much here, and in fact, far more expensive than the paper and hardback copies?

The first in the series starts out a little slow, but this book more than makes up for it! You can definately tell that Mr. Sidebottom is a history professor, by his writing style.

This book will lead you no where fast with its pointless plots and dull repitation. I honest to god had hope something was going to come of it but was sadly mistaken.
