** spoiler alert ** A book full of cliffhangers!

There were so many times as I read this book that my mouth dropped open and I said, "Wait! What just happened?!" While the main story line had somewhat of an outcome, many of the threads were left hanging, clearly leaving room for sequels.

This is a story of war, and as such it was gritty and dark. Although I'm not all that familiar with the time frame, it felt like careful research was done, and there was great attention to detail. The romance in the story was subdued, but when it broke through it was quite lovingly written. As the story went on it divided into two distinct relationships. The one between Matt and Ken was never finalized, and I'm sure their story will come through in a sequel.

The developing story between Kristopher and Michel was a joy to watch unfold. I was completely captivated by the obvious love these two shared, and breathed a sigh of relief at the end when they finally were able to consummate what each felt for the other.

Highly recommended!
