They are also building an interest in wanting to know more about the Coventers, Scotland, and the like.
The boys of course love the drama; the Swords, the archery, and muskets. My oldest boy is interested in getting a Crow and teaching him to talk. It will be interesting to see what kinds of adventures these books take us. ;)
The second half (approximately) of book 3 is compelling reading -- I kept turning pages to see what would happen, even though I hadn't gotten to know the characters by reading the first two and a half books. I LOVED the way the characters encouraged each other with Scripture (so if you object to Christian content, don't read this book). However, if I had known how much blood and gore was described, I don't think I would have handed these books to my 10-year old.
The first bit I read described how one of the Covenanters leaders was beheaded on the battlefield and his head was displayed on a pike. Another dead Covenanter's head is used as the ball for a football game. In one sequence, one character wonders to himself if he should tell his sons about the torture and horrible deaths suffered by some of their martyrs. He decides it would be to dreadful to tell them...but the author has told the reader everything in the process...
I'm not going to say the books are bad...perhaps they could inspire your children to be bold in their faith as these characters were. Certainly they might be challenged to have God's Word on their tongues and interwoven into their conversation.
I just think, if you're reading reviews to find out what these books are like, you might appreciate knowing that there are some pretty graphic descriptions of torture and battlefield deaths.
Great story. Great book to read before reading 'Against the Tide, The story of Margaret Wilson'.
