Review: I know I said I wasn’t going to do anymore classics or history pieces for awhile but I had been asked to do a review on this book and I was hooked the moment I started reading. I’m not usually one for an old west type of book, but this was good. There was always action or wonderment that kept the story moving. The author does jump perspectives a bit, but it is more planned out and easier to follow from the beginning. Luckett really does paint a picture of everything happening and moves seamlessly from point A to point B.
