ABOUT THE BOOK

Release Date: February 2021
Genre: Action Adventure Historical Fiction, Christian Fiction
I was intrigued first by the setting, as 1300's Greece is not something that I believe I have ever read about before, and this book was an excellent introduction of the time period.
An action-packed read that follows an enslaved thief, without a name, called Mouse or Girl by her ambitious master, she is skilled in deception, thievery, and escape. Her small crew is hired to help over throw an empire, planting seeds of mistrust and destroying alliances. She is intrigued by a God who could forgive even her gravest sins, and tempted by a love just out of reach, I admired her quick thinking and loyalty, as well as how she is willing to learn and longs for a more simple honest life.
Well researched, this book vividly brings the physical and political landscape to life in a not oft written about time period. Gillen is a likable hero, dashing, and gentlemanly, willing to make sacrifices. A action-filled historical, that brings to life the conflicts of the time, with well written characters that spark curiosity, along with faith and romance!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
