Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating and satisfying Could not put this book down. The POV is unique and made me think of aspects of history that I had not considered before. The feeling of being on campaign with the character Caesar has an authenticity to it that is lovely. Following the field of battle in the Revolution from the perspective of the soldier was instructive and the battle scenes were breathtaking. The female characters showed many aspects of the slave trade and the Revolution that are missing from the history books. What a great read!
