Good read

This was a good choice for my holiday novel, very involving and hard to put down. It is not my favorite Sara Douglass, but a good stand alone story.

Magnificent

As always Sara's book had me captivated from start to finish. She is very much a special Author and one very capable of writing a story that draws you heavily into it making feel as if you live the story.

Magnificent as always.
