Very well written and definitely imaginative, but didn't resonate with me. I skimmed most of the ending, sadly. Just not a period of history that holds a lot of fascination for me and the fight scenes didn't hold my interest (it's NOT the writing, it's ME, swear).
I may give it another try in the future. I'm not sorry I read (most of) it, but it wasn't really my cuppa (tea).
