Last of the Duncans

Leaving behind the Highlands for the New World at the tender age of ten, Connor Duncan learned quickly that only the fit and the fortunate survive.

This book came highly recommended from As an ardent fan of the movie 'Last of the Mohicans' I have been wanting to read it for a while. I was not disappointed. It makes a great read but it somehow follows the template laid down by the movie rather too strictly. The author has blended history very well in this book and to her credit it works well on the plot. But I wish the conflict had not followed the movie's script too closely and had added more dimensions. That would have made ...more
Me ha gustado, la abundancia de diálogos, que siempre ayudan a que la lectura se vuelva más amena y agradable. Los secundarios son fantásticos, desde el padre de Carrie, al imbecil, perdón, hermano John, a Andrew, Patsy o mi favorito, sin duda alguna, Efrem, un indio cheroqui, conquistador y que se cree un Dios de la fertilidad, que para mí, es él que aporta el puntillo cómico a la novela.

This book reminds me a little of "Last of the Mohicans". This is about a man that lived with and adopted Indian ways. He is a scout and gets involved with a mility man's daughter.

La novela está bastante bien aunque no puedo negar que he leído libros bastante mejores de batallas entre Escocia e Inglaterra.
I would have given this four stars but it's a touch too derivative (Last of the Mohicans) to get full marks.
Un libro que me ha gustado bastante, ha sido muy interesante leerlo después de una saturación de Regencia.

I've always been a writer. Ever since I could remember my biggest desire was to put words to paper. Finally my dreams of publication came true in 2002 with the release of Chase The Wind, the first book in my historical family saga. But I've also looked to the stars since I was a small girl. Which led to my writing of Futuristic Action Romance under the pen name Colby Hodge. And since I've got a k
