I couldn't wait to read the second book in this three part series. It was just as good as the first one and I can't wait to read the third and final part of the trilogy. These books are so well-researched and flawless. The stories of the different families all fall in together as if these events really happened in the exact way as written. All of the history written about here is based in fact and it just makes learning the history so much more fun. I feel like I know these five families personally, and I can't wait to find out what will happen to each of them next.
