This is an amazing book. Not a dull moment in it. I had a hard time putting it down. I have purchased the next two books in the series. I have also recommended it my friends and family.

This book is well worth a read. It is not perfect but it is an extremely gripping story and full of action. It is not the kind of book I normally read, yet I found myself reading in the small hours to find out what happened next. One of the fastest-moving reads I've experienced - a rapidly plot-twisting roller-coaster. The characters endear themselves and you feel for them. The frequent POV changes were unsettling at first, but the reason for that is hinted in the title of the book. Its not the story of a single person but of his bloodline through several generations so we switch from male to female and back quite regularly though mainly focusing on one from each generation. I felt that the book was well-researched and displaying a period in the history of Australia accurately and with a gritty realism that brought it alive for me. There were a few errors but not so many they became obtrusive or annoying. Well worth a read. I'm intending to give the next one a go as well.
