Robert McCammon, for folks who like the King/Koontz genre, will love Robert's come back 4 part series. Fun enjoyable read. Set in pre-revolutionary war era, McCammon's tale let's one enjoy his story, yet dip into the mind set of living back in the day. Great Fun!
This book was absolutely spellbinding and a page-turner!! The only disappointment when I got to the end was realizing that there was part 2 and I did not have it. So I immediately ordered it and am eagerly awaiting it!
