Howell Davidson has never been given anything, and now he’s in a taking mood. What he wants to take is revenge. He’s been fitted up for a murder he didn’t commit by a “Gentleman” he’s only just met, and he can’t rest until he’s evened the score. Howell’s immediate problem, though, is surviving the rebellion in Bohemia that is plunging Europe into a generation of warfare that will come to be known as the Thirty Years War.
In this first episode of Howell Davidson’s 17th Century adventures, he carries a musket for the most celebrated mercenary of his time, storming ancient fortresses, and fending off savage cavalry attacks. Between battles, he woos the confidant of a Countess and tries to come to grips with the object of his vendetta. His efforts require a generous portion of courage, a liberal application of guile, and more help from his new friend, Giovanni, than he would care to admit. In the end, Howell sees justice done in a manner he could never have imagined.

This is a great read. The writing style is easy to read, yet you learn a little about the 30 years' war, and you start to like the characters and look forward to the next adventures.
If you like historical novels, you will definitely enjoy this book.
