Review by: Lili Crai on Sep. 29, 2014 :
I really liked this - it vividly describes times we are happy we do not have to live in, but fascinating all the same. All that humanity - resignation, love, hate, anger, helplessness, greed, belief, heroism... makes your heart squeeze... Couldn't put it down, but then I'm a sucker for this kind of historic tale where good prevails, even in the nick of time - especially so well written.

Well done - 5 star from me, and I'm starting on the next book straight away!

Review by: Peter Nicholas Farrell on Feb. 02, 2013 : (no rating)
Excellent book. Good story set in a region not normally used by authors but well described. Has a certain resonance for British people of a certain age who can remember the old William Tell TV series.

Looking forward to the rest of the series
