I’m not giving this book a rating because I didn’t finish it. But, unlike most DNF’s, I’m not sure it was entirely the book’s fault. It isn’t badly written, and there are some interesting historical details. But, I was bored. I didn’t engage with the characters, and I skimmed more than half of it before I decided to just give up. The parts that I read seemed well written, and the premise I was getting was interesting enough for me to pick up the book in the first place. But, I just didn’t find it enough to keep reading. I would try another book by this author, but I won’t be giving THIS book another try.
