Review

I like this book so much I must tell you some of my thoughts. First, this (in my opinion) is your best novel. The subject matter fascinated me. All along the way I kept thinking - "Wow, we really could use these reforms. This man is right on target. Yes! Let's get started right away." Then Paul Harvey's comment of "Absolute power corrupts absolutely" came to mind and I asked myself if we could stop anyone once they really got going? I do not know the answer to the above question. Next, how many comments are your personal opinions? Can I guess? Page 14 "The candidates spent time in torturous explanations which explained nothing." You do not like government people any better than I do. Re education: you also do not like the no-child-left-behind rule. Re our prison system: Why have death rows if no one dies? Re zero tolerance policy on anything: It does not work because it eliminates common sense and then we really have problems. Third, some questions. 1. Is this the same Rachel and Graham of "A Deal of a Lifetime?" 2. I translated the inscription on the coat of arms as In Gods Service- am I correct? Fourth. The inscription on the coat of arms really got to me. Other than having Priests pray at meals and the Pope preside at weddings and coronations, God was completely absent from all actions. Sunday's Gospel (Oct 23,2005) was the first commandment is to love God. The next commandment is to love your neighbor. I had your book three fourths read by then and I could not help but compare that Gospel with your book. The Clark motto was a farce! I love the irony. That was great on your part. Fifth. Catlin's first act as commander-in-chief after the death of Henry surprised me (maybe I'm too naive). I expected her to have a softer attitude. Absolute power - it was the perfect ending.

A most interesting read. Alternative history (or future) makes one pause and think... maybe a monarchy ain't all that bad! Keeps you interesting through most of the book.

Format: Paperback
This book is a good beach book, or a comfortable curl up kinda book. The author starts writing a sort of military/alternative history action thriller, and does a nice, almost seamless segue into an almost-romance novel. His military action scenes, while not Tom Clancy, are satisfying enough, and the love and affection between the lead characters are believeable. If I had to critique, I'd have to say that the last quarter of the book is way too summarized; I would have liked to see a lot more "story".
