Writing at its best!,
This review is from: The Bastard (Mass Market Paperback)
I read all the series in the Kent Family Chronicles ten years ago when I was a senior in high school. I could not put them down and was fascinated by what each generation of this family went through. At the time, I was studying American History and these books made everything click and placed it all in perspective. John Jakes is the one who inspired me to work towards my dream of a writing career and to pursue a degree in junior high or high school history. He is one of my very favorite authors. He makes history come alive and helps one to understand it all. The breathtaking romance and nail biting adventure and thrills are just the icing on the cake. I loved every book in the series, although the "Warriors" is my favorite and "Jeremiah", my favorite Kent family member. I look forward to rereading them all again soon.

I also read this whole series when they originally hit the market. I had recently had them on my mind and was pleasantly surprised to see the first book on this website. I found the whole series wonderful and recall sobbing through many of the tragic and heartrending stories. So glad they bringing them back.
