Review

Gripping... [a] moving narrative of friendships broken by war and betrayal (Sunday Times)

What an amazing roller-coaster of a ride... this book is fantastic... So startlingly good, so utterly readable (Manda Scott)

'An action-packed narrative' (Daily Mail)

Without shying away from the realities of the war in this rarely mentioned corner of the conflict, the story deftly weaves the past together with the effects it has on future generations... The story of the friendship at the heart of this novel stays with you after reading. ***** (5 stars) (The People's Friend)

'A rip-roaring page-turner... Sturdy elegance and incisive wit' (Historical Novel Review)

Scarrow neatly weaves together competing human passions for treasure, love, honour and freedom in a moving tribute to the Greek resistance during the Second World War (Clare Mulley)

Simon Scarrow writes vividly of the drama and intensity of 20th century warfare (Choice)

A deep and intense novel that examines the effects of World War II on Lefkas and the rest of Greece (Sydney Morning Herald)

...a compelling and exciting read. This is a real treat for fans of Scarrow, a fast-paced page turner. Recommended (Historical Novels Review)

Pacy...and thrilling (The Book Bag)

This is an excellent novel with powerful storytelling and well-crafted characters whose proud stories and courage will melt your heart. I really enjoyed this evocative and emotional novel and found the detail compelling and interesting (Joan Hill for Lovereading.co.uk)

Can friendship survive the horrors of war? A brilliant read spanning the war years and the present (Karen McIntosh for Lovereading.co.uk)

Brilliant, exciting, moving story of Greek resistance during WWII. I loved this book (Ann Peet for Lovereading.co.uk)

'An evocative story of a Greek island in the Second World War interlaced with a modern day tale' (Nicola Lowes for Lovereading.co.uk)

A very good read (Dana Captainino for Lovereading.co.uk)

This book is totally gripping right from the start and I loved all of it (Judith Waring for Lovereading.co.uk)

Such a powerful, interesting read. Very well researched. Will definitely be looking out for more of Simon Scarrow's books (Hannah Ward for Lovereading.co.uk)

'As an avid reader of his Roman novels about Macro and Cato, I was keen to see how he would portray a different period of history. I was not disappointed' (Sarah Jones for Lovereading.co.uk)

'A "can't put down" book of the best kind! I found myself whispering warnings and encouragement to the characters as though they were my friends' (Anne Rhodes for Lovereading.co.uk)

'I found myself immersed in this adventure. A great holiday read' (Goodreads member)

'I absolutely loved this book from the first to the past page, and that is down to the writers style, the story is well crafted and flows at a pace to keep the pages turning... beautifully crafted into a mesmerising story' (Goodreads member)

I had to make a decision at 78% ...! Carry on reading or ditch the book. So I skimmed it, took about 10 minutes and found out the ending. I loathe doing this, but I just couldn't face the last part. The reason mainly because I found it very brutal and a bit boyish. I didn't necessarily connect with the characters either. That said I have given it a 3 star rating, the storyline is very good. This is purely personal, if it had that softer girlish edge to it I would have loved it.

This story is good but not in the same league as the roman era books. It was for me a bit too obvious and not enough twist and turns as I'm used to.

A well written story of how a country can fight against repression by an enemy, how a childhood friendships can be broken by the actions of people later in their life, it is a book that tugs at the heart strings.

An excellent story in the same vein (or covering the same kind of background as) Captain Correlli... the Italians are not quite so lovable, the Germans much nastier, and their is an Indiana Jones kind of twist... very good..

In the past I have read only his historical books, this was good and reflects well what must have been very difficult times.
