Generally I enjoyed the book. I liked the device of using a historical setting to develop the story line. I thought the description of the main character was too lightly drawn, but that did not detract from the enjoyment of the novel. Over all a good book and I'd recommend it.
Thank you for the opportunity to review this novel.

The story was really interesting with a lot of elements I like including a little bit of Sci-Fi and time travel and historical. But for the entire series, you have to get past the lack of editing.

The remainder of the book and series is about his life, love and adventures in the past.

I struggled really hard with how to rate this book. It's a solid 4 on plot and st
