review 1: I found this book to be a very interesting read. It has many layers; one of which is autism. The author gives a good amount of time to the characteristics of this disease in one of her major characters. Other subjects I noted are: archeology in Egyptian tombs, unexpected roman...

review 1: Amazingly well-written, with an action-packed beginning that hooked me right away. I wish I had read this book before the others in the series, since my knowledge of what would eventually happen to certain characters took away some of the suspense at times. The author did a nice...

review 1: The reason we read historical fiction is not for the history. It’s for the fiction. We fall in love with a character, and whether she lives in Mongolia or Austin, ancient Rome or modern India, we want to know what it’s like to be her, to know her, and to fall in love, just as she...

review 1: This book started out so promising, and then went slowly, very slowly downhill for me. Great initial story about a girl trying to find her father in war torn Germany during WW2. Then at about page 300 they started into this ridiculous teenage love story about her and this Chinese...
