Young Nate Starbuck, the son of a famous Boston abolitionist preacher, flees the North after helping a femme fatale steal money she claimed was hers. When Richmond landowner Washington Faulconer snatches him from the grip of a Yankee-hating mob, Nate is both grateful to and awed by his idealistic rescuer. He agrees to join the newly formed Faulconer’s Legion—even though it means fighting against his native North.

But Nate’s dilemma is only one of many within the Legion. Faulconer’s own son cannot bring himself to fight, while his daughter’s cheating fiancé plots for control of the family fortune. As they come together to march into battle, the men of Faulconer’s Legion are prepared to start a war, but they aren’t ready for how they—and the nation—will be forever changed by the oaths they have sworn for their beloved South.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ben Rogowski | 2/18/2014

    " Had to take the book back to the library but read about 225pgs. Not too bad of a book overall, nothing terribly exciting happened. A lot of character descriptions and details but action is not on the front burner for this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Anthony | 2/14/2014

    " BC is awesome, as always. I will be reading the whole series immediately. Nathaniel Starbuck stumbles into the Civil War amidst an interesting, well-told, even haunting story. I really wish there were more writers out there doing this kind of thing. "

    " A strange plot, too many characters, too much action and over-busy. Horrid for me :( "
