Review by: Dick Reynolds on Nov. 16, 2010 :
Alternate history is a genre of its own and this is one of the best I've read. The author has a way of gaining your confidence and the narrative is both involving and exciting. It is, after all, about the conquering of the Americas. Lot of blood, lot of slaughter, but conveyed in a remarkably tasteful and understated way. Though I knew it was fiction, I believed every word.

Review by: Sarah Williams on July 10, 2010 :
This is the unforgettable story of what might have been had Mongols conquered North America before it was discovered by Europeans. The narrator, The Raven, is eloquent in his descriptions of native peoples and civilizations. Read the first couple pages and you'll be drawn right into the story---and what an adventure it is.
