KIRKUS REVIEW

Old school -- and ever popular historical romance, against the not too hackneyed background of the Thirty Year's War. The guardsmen, George, and his beloved Angela, child of misfortune, are the fictional characters whose romance spins a bright thread through the pattern of the grimness of religious fanaticism, petty intrigues of prelates and princes, jealousy of generals, and horrors of the times. Albrecht of Wallenstein is the central figure. Highly dramatic, keyed to the interests of those intelligent readers who like meaty historical fiction.
