5.0 out of 5 stars An auspicious debut, 5 Aug 2013
This ticked all the boxes for a summer read: evocative writing; a historical setting full of tension, incident and character; carefully drawn protagonists with credible motivations - all deeply impressive in any novel, let alone a debut. It also passed one of the great tests of any historical fiction in that it sent me straight to the best non-fiction on the Ottoman, Byzantine and Venetian empires to learn more about the period. Very much to be recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Short of expectations, 10 Mar 2011
This is disappointing on a number of levels. Firstly, the untold delay in shipping - ordered in November, received in March. On inspecting it, it's clear that the description on Amazon is inaccurate in referring to a pen and cable holder, which it does not include. The case itself does not fit the iPad as snugly as it might, the spine does not feel strong enough, and the bottom of the case catches on the bottom of the notebook. All in all this fell short of expectations.
