My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is the second book of the Kent Family Chronicles, the sequel of The Bastard.
I wasn’t so enthusiastic with the plot of the second book of this series since Phillip has some childish behavior regarding missing his wife while he is fighting in the battlefields.
In spite of this, I’m still a big fan of the Marquis of Lafayette.
I must point out that the best books on the American Revolutionary War are Jeff Sharaa’s 2 book series (Rise to Rebellion and The Glorious Cause) which are much better than JJ’s series: more accurate historical facts, less romance and much better plot engaging the reader during the whole book.
