I love Ms. Bevills Lake people novels. I've read all of them and her characters are well developed but not so bogged down in detail that reading them is a chore.
They move fast and once you start you want to keep reading to see what happens next.
They do have the old boy meets girl, they fall in love, etc, etc, but she thankfully leaves out the gratuitous sex that becomes so repetetive in some books that I end up skipping half the book! At least her boy meets girl scenarios are interesting.
So all in all, I really enjoyed all the lake people books and just wish there were more of them!
Having been to Rome several times and being a roman history buff, I found this book a "can't put it down pageturner".
some of the tactical details got a little boggy at times as well as the intricate descriptions of the rifles,etc.. I would have loved to have had a bit more of the actual details of the day to day hardships compared to 21 century life, but the insight into the roman army life was fascinating and I can't wait to start the sequel.
I really hope there is another sequel coming after the 2nd.
Another great book. This 1 has a little more relationship development in it. Sometimes you get a little lost in the how could this happen aspect of it. But all in all it's a great read when you'll start can't put down. I hope there are many more coming in this series!
I am definately not a young adult but I loved these books, although the misusage of throne and thrown and passed and past drives me insane.
but past that, these are very well written books, a definate page turner and I can't wait for the next one.
I have read almost every major fantasy author and many never heard of (I have a serious fantasy addiction, yes, even seniors and I don't mean in high school can believe in fantasy) and I can't beleive it won't be long before this young woman is discovered. I normally don't care for "dragon" fiction but her characters are beleivable, well developed and thouroughly entertaining. I couldn't put them down and I can't wait for the next one.
loved this book. very well written and edited. characters were well developed a very believable. couldn't put it down once I started itI only hope that there's a sequel to it we can find out what happens next!
