Author Wilbur Smith created a tremendous series and with this being #19 I am pretty proud of myself for keeping up with it. The return of dynamic characters Leon Courtney, Centaine De Thury, and Sasha Courtney....sure to be another action packed story. It's not for everyone. I don't consider any of the books a light read. Still if you can handle the depth and strong hostile war like atmosphere it's worth a chance. So far so good.
