One word: riveting.
This book had me on the edge of my seat. Every moment was just as intriguing as the next as the plot seemed to thicken and expand the deeper you got into the story. I’m not sure if I’ve ever picked up a historical fiction novel, but I’m so glad this one crossed my path.
The attention to detail is amazing, and the scenes that involved conflict were very well done. At times, I found myself holding my breath, rooting for Fabriciano, especially as the book wrapped up and I was getting close to the end. I knew it was coming, but I wasn’t ready for it. I didn’t want to say goodbye to these characters yet, but all good things must come to an end.
The political intrigue was something I didn’t know I enjoyed so much. There are so many moving parts in this story, and the fact that it’s tied in with history has me just over the moon—especially as someone who lives in Texas. I was always that student that couldn’t remember history dates and whatnot for the life of her, but I’ve found that books like this, books that give history life, really help it stick in my mind.
All in all, this book is absolutely amazing. I recommend this to anyone who wants a rich, gripping story that you simply cannot put down. The descriptions are exceptional, and the images placed within the text add so much to the story itself. I also can’t forget to mention the realistic, three-dimensional characters you come to know and love.
I highly, highly recommend this book. You will not regret a single moment.
