Quotes & Awards

  • “The rich historical details and keen characterizations are offset by the graphic depictions of battlefield violence and social cruelty in this smooth, brisk-paced narrative that should generate wide appeal to American historical fiction fans.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The Gears display their usual narrative finesse as they combine history, archaeology, and anthropology with an irresistibly intriguing story line that brings the past vividly to life.”
