    " Great read, very quick, and the language is very engaging. Set in the early 19th century, it offers a very interesting character sketch of Napolean while also running you through a mystery that is gripping from start to finish. Very well done (and free on the Kindle). "

    " A quick read. Napoleonic era swashbuckler/romance. "

    " This book is in reality two loosely cobbled together short stories. The adventures of Louis and Bernac and the story of life in Napolean's camp on the French Coast. It was a good read and I enjoyed it. But not one of Doyle's best. "

    " Great story of love, war, and familial betrayal. "
