My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I can honestly say that seeing as its historical fiction, which I haven't read for a very long time, this was an enjoyable read. I got myself into the time zone and was well into it.
I hadn't read the first book in the series, and quite honestly I didn't realize this until I started to read this one. Doing some research I realised that I am missing some of the storyline which does make a difference, I can't say this could be read easily without reading the first book of this series. I'd highly recommend it.
Saying that, by the time I got half way through I was able to piece more and more together. It was an enjoyable read and I'd read another book by this author in a heart beat.
I got this as a complimentary book from Tyndale House Publishers via Net Galley.
