“In his debut novel, Reidr Daniels strove to intricately weave a fascinating period of history into his amazing work of fiction in a deft coming of age tale. Extremely well researched, it is also a fast-moving story that gives a peek inside the world of empire-building that provided opportunities of heroism for those brave enough to run towards the cannon fire rather than away from it.”

—Dave Carroll, Author

It’s completely AMAZING! I was here thinking that the first one was good, but the sequel just gets better and better. There is action from the beginning to the end, not a moment of peace!
