I can't believe I delayed buying this book because the last couple of series by Jeff Wheeler didn't really excite me. HOWEVER, this book is a fantastic page-turner and written as well as his Kingfountain series, which I loved. I'm so glad I went ahead and bought this book, and I'm anxiously awaiting the second book in the First Argentine series. I'm not going to give away any spoilers, just know it's a very good read. Highly recommend it!
