To be the honest I wasn’t attracted to this book because of the plot I was attracted by the cover and the way the book was bound. However once I started reading I was glad I picked it up. The book is researched so well that I couldn’t find any flaws and all the historical detail was extremely accurate. In all honesty this book can be over descriptive at times, which I am not a big fan of, I prefer to use my imagination. However there are always exceptions and I felt that particular style suited this book well. I found this book highly original and would recommend it to anyone searching for a original book that is like nothing they have ever read before.
