I quite enjoyed this book. There is a lot of history to get through, but overall I thought it was very entertaining and pretty well written (and I consider myself a rather harsh critic, especially in this genre. ). Nice job, I recommend this book as a fun read.
I just got through reading this book! It was VERY good! I couldn't put it down and it only took me 4 days to read it. I don't normally read anything but romance novels, but it was awesome! I hope the author has plans to write more books
