Read this as it's a little later than my period, which I deliberately try to avoid for fear of inadvertant plagiarism.
I was somewhat disappointed to find I didn't really empathise with the main character. That made the book easy to put down; consequently it took four or five days to finish.
Plus it was another officer/sergeant scenario. Yes, I know both are essential for plot reasons, but why don't writers try to add a twist to the relationship? If there was one here it went over my head.

The book was great, as usual, since I recently developed the interest for historical fiction and army-based plots.

This was okay, but a bit of a plod in places. I'm not in a hurry to read others in the series.
