I had hoped this book to be a lot better, but it wasn't. It lacked excitement, and seemed to linger on the same subject forever. It took me a little while longer to read it because it didn't interest me as much. It also took a long time to get to the battle scene, and when it finally did I didn't have a clue what was going on!! It did have a good story line and yes I would recommend it to someone who likes historical fiction. If you like books with a lot of action, this isn't the book for you. I would recommend this for ages 13 and up.
