This book jumped back in time and takes place before the previous one in the serious. I found this to be confusing, but I got used to it after a few chapters. One thing this series does is jump between POV and even narrators which I find distracting and pulls me out of the set up in the initial book of these being long lost journals.

Anyhow, this book continues its fast paced western adventure style, set in the backdrop of the Mormon Pioneers settling Utah. This one in particular dealt with the J...more

This book centered around the Mountain Meadow Massacre which I didn't even know about till PBS did that special.

The author said he did as much research as he could and based his story around it. I thought he did a good job portraying what a hard thing it was to do for John Lee rather than the spin PBS tried to pull.

Good historical LDS read.

I didn't like this as much. It was okay. I felt like Nelson found an interesting part of history and threw his characters into it. But because of the genre, I can't trust the history that is contained within the book.

It is still a good read and written well enough to keep the story flowing and the reader interested.
Same complaint in that books 3 and 4 should be switched in order, but I think that Lee Nelson thought that 3 books were all that he could get away with, and then decided to go for another. I did learn a lot about the Mountain Meadow Massacre, which I don't remember from my previous times of reading this book.
