I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I really like the characters. I found them interesting, especially Zoe...do you hate her or love her? So hard to know. I love historical fiction and this one has been different from others I have read lately and I found it refreshing. I did find that the love story aspect was quite predictable, since you have a female who is posing as a male. It did wrap up a little quickly and in somewhat of a nice, neat package, but there was quite a bit of death, so overall the ending was doable.
