I am an author and historian and live in Maryland with my husband, two dogs, and three cats. I have worked in archaeology and many of my ideas come from my travels to the Southwest, the Outer Banks of North Carolina and my travels in Europe.

Well-written. Well-edited. Page-turner. But the plot is... a little disappointing.
The professional editing service really paid off. I noticed none but one, very minor typo (missing period, chapter 36). No inconsistency in its plot. The grammar looked perfect (I wouldn't actually notice if something was wrong, my grammar is horrible, as seen in this review). The book oozed perfection, just like the pre-ebooks era. Either that, or because this was written and edited in the British side of the English.
The plot was captivating at start, in as much as I actually postponed many other things to finish this book in one day. Unfortunately, doing that added to my disappointment. Throughout the book, I was promised a great deal of dangers, enemies who would stop at nothing for their goals, etc, etc, but what I actually got was... disappointing. Only two enemies encounters, one was not even violent. The protagonist seemed to exaggerate the danger, and the amount of civilians they dragged in further support my suspicion.
