By ReasonableGoatPerson on January 16, 2013
Format: Paperback
Apparently this is the book Christopher Nicole is most proud to have written, but really I found it quite boring and forgettable. True, this may have had more than a little to do with the fact I have no interest in the main subject matter, i.e. combat.

The story is based on the true events of an 1823 slave uprising in Guyana, with some fictional personal drama thrown in, in the form of a woman hellbent on getting control of her family's plantation back. See, daddy dies and it becomes her brother's property. Brother's wifey is not a fan of sister (or planting) so its GTFO and find yourself a husband, ho. There's also an interracial attraction going on, that despite being given a psychological explanation, was unbelievable to me.

Overall, too much strategy and fighting made this a tedious read. Good speech on the last three pages, though.
