As I have previously mentioned, I don't do book reports (last on was in 1970) so don't expect one now. This is a very good book. I liked it enough to read it several times and purchase it twice. If you liked the previous works you will probably like this one. If this is the first book of the series you have read you owe it to yourself to go buy the previous works. It WILL be worth it.
I do want to mention however, an annoyance with this book that is minor for me though might be worse for others,(though it got more annoying as there werent just a few) there are TONS of errors in the book as far as duplicate words, words in the wrong order, wrong word all together. nothing was so bad that you couldnt figure out what was supposed to be ment but it did at times impede the flow at its worst. I have never read a book that was that badly checked for errors. I do wonder if this is just an issue with the mass market edition?
This book is a Stand Alone even if you haven't read the others. It mixes the Golden Horde of Mongoles who swept into India and Russia (got as far as writing the Pope asking if he wanted help in our world) and Vlad Dracula, the man with our established heroes.
The more historical tidbits you know the more these books appeal.
