After reading Moon Medicine, i had to read this book. This book was just as good as the first. The Civil War battles make this book very interesting. Honoré has multiple brushes with death and makes every second of this book exciting. I truly loved this book, though it had some parts that really tug at your heart. I highly recommend this book.
