This review is from: Balthasar's Odyssey (Paperback)
This is not my usual read at all, being fantasy and historical, but I did absolutely love it. It is a rich and colourful book. The style is fabulous and so easy to read, the plot flows effortlessly. The portrayal of the Mediterranean is excellent and the characters are delightful, even if a few are quite unsavoury. Within a very clever and slightly comical plot many modern day issues are touch upon, but in the same breath the historical accounts are well researched and accurate.
I just can't praise this read enough and look forward to reading more of this author's books.
