Very surprising, I "bought" this book since it was free and I needed something to occupy long evenings before sleep. I have become a fan of this author. After becoming used to the pronunciation of names and locations it is a very easy, entertaining read. Looking forward to the remainder of the series. I have recommended this book to my Wife and friends for them to also enjoy.
