This is the first book of the series that I have read. It was fairly easy to pick up, and the bulk of the blanks were easy to fill in (like what happened in Book 1).

A good book. I would certainly have not finished it otherwise as I find it difficult to read books that do not hold my interest.
He has been reading and writing about history for longer than he cares to recall...
