I found Copperhead an entertaining and relatively fast read. The story is engaging, the descriptions of battles heart pounding, and the character development superb.

On a more technical level, the writing in this book is a tad more difficult to read than Rebel and Agincourt. I'm not sure if this is because of less than stellar proofreading, a change in the authors style, or a problem with narration. I often found myself re-reading passages and getting confused about who was doing what as the author switched between Northern and Southern narratives without a clear section break.

Otherwise, this is a great book, and I recommend the Starbuck series to anyone who enjoys historical fiction.
