Really great and page turning! I thoroughly enjoyed the mixing of all kinds of mythology and history. It really peaked my interest in other types of world mythology other than the popular Greek/Roman. The author has an endless supply of characters, pulling them from real life, fiction, and some in-between so that you never really knew what kind of character to expect next. A great and age appropriate read for kids (and adults) who like history, fantasy, and adventure.
Scott's "New York Times" bestseller--the first in his riveting fantasy series--is now in paperback.
