    Not what I expected, BETTER, much much better.

    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.

    ok

    very short books. 50 pgs or less. they jump around from character to character. Could have been one book, combining the 10.
