The first reviews are in!

It takes weeks to get even a paid review. But my first two are finally in and they’re good. Interestingly, they don’t actually fully agree. One dinged me on the dialect and footnotes, the other really liked it. Until I can actually contractually release the reviews, here are some snippets from each.

“… depicts historical events in thorough, fascinating terms … comprehensive image of a distinctive period … credible and informative work … vast and diverse cast … people’s personalities and relationships drive the novel forward … absorbing historical novel … zesty and occasionally touching[readers will] very much want to stay with the series as it goes forward … ending with a gripping setup for a sequel … “

Seriously, I’m gratified. I want to create believable, relatable characters that engage readers with the real people of a time and place. Book One sets the stage for the real growth and development of these people in Book Two, and both reviewers were positive about the characters, writing, and series concept. Happy!
