"Strong 4.5 Stars. The only reason I can't give it 5 is just that there was so much graphic war.
I started out absolutely loving the book. The characters are fantastic, the dialog is smart, and the story comes vividly alive.
My only down side I had was that I only have an hour or so at the end of my day to read so I was reading this before going to sleep. After a few days I started to have dreams about the graphic war scenes, it was starting to get to me.
However, I still loved the story and characters and would recommend it to those who enjoy historical fiction.
This is a standalone book which is a part of Conall's story. I will be getting book 2!"
