This is not a book. It is an excerpt from a book. A complete story has a beginning, middle and an end. This has no end. No conclusion. It just stops. Very annoying way to try to con readers to buy the rest of the story.

The story focuses on the troubles Abby runs into pretending to be a boy and it really doesn't even make sense that she's doing it. It's mostly boring and was hard to get through. Then to find out it's an incomplete story was very irritating.

This novel captures the way of life during the time it was written and also inter-weaves the history of the time, very enjoyable read that leaves you wanting to read the next book in the series.

Aside from the grammatical and wording mistakes which seems to be common anymore, it is a nice easy read with a little scottish history. A quick, easy read.

Not much history and weak plot.

I could not get beyond page 2 as the sentences were so short it made for frustrating reading. No intellectual challenges here. I suppose you get what you pay for (free).

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed the book and it's take on Scottish history. The characters were living in tumultuous times. I didn't completely understand Abby's decision to pretend to be male, but assume it would have been a safer choice during this time period. I am surprised that her father would have sent her to Scotland without much protection and can justify her choice to assume a male identity because of this. The cast of characters is interesting and Abby has to deal with lots more intrigue than just learning about her father's homeland. I felt the book abruptly ended just when events began to make some sense and wish there had been more of a transition to what will be the next volume. I look forward to finding out more of her story in the next book.
