Ciji Wave always writes superb fiction, expertly weaved into history but I feel that she's really outdone herself this time.

Great story

This novel has a great plot. The author has an ability to make you believe something only to find out later that you were wrong. There are a few things that bothered me. The author has a writing style the us sometimes confusing and I had to re-read passages at time to figure out what she was saying. Also, I thought that she was too wordy at times which was distracting. However, the plot and story overcomes all my negatives. A must read.

She was so well depicted that I could see her blending in with the locals. No one suspecting her mission. The ...more
