    10.

This could be a really great Historical Fiction book The problem is that it s so long winded, drawn out and overly detailed that it was hard to get through the book It took forever You have to trudge through too many boring parts to get to any of the good stuff I think if this was cut down a little, it could be a fantastic 5 star Historical Fiction I enjoyed the spies, war and true historical factions to the story I think with work, toning it down, it could be an amazing story.

    14. Jeffrey Perren has provided an exceptional piece of entertainment and that is exactly why I read novels for entertainment He without a doubt and as evident by other reviews, compiled the right ingredients to captivate the senses Take the plunge the book is worth the investment to steal you from reality But sadly you must return to reality and to the unseen hand that guides the final curtain of man s legacy This is the second novel by Perren where I ve been pleasantly satiated Go for it.
