Book One of Spiritwalker
Written by Kate Elliott
It's been awhile since I read an alternative history fiction book. I was happy to slip into the genre again. I enjoy history quite a bit, and I enjoy seeing what might have been, had certain things in history not happened exactly the way they did happen. It's fun to see what direction the author will go with major historic events. The alternative history in this book isn't one I'm super familiar with, dealing with the Romans and Phoenicians, but I still found it interesting.
Elliott had plenty of interesting characters that were easy to fall in love with. She managed to make them very human and to describe them in such a way that you were drawn into their particular stories and felt a kinship with them.
I know I didn't write as much about this book as I usually write, but I seriously feel that it's better with this one. If you enjoy alternative history and supernatural phenomenon, then just try it out for yourself. I was not disappointed and I don't think you'd be either. I don't want to ruin the book for you, so that's all I'm going to say about this one.
