After reading the one star ratings for this book, I thought it necessary to put it into perspective for prospective readers.

I'm a BIG fan of romance novels. From devouring Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, I moved on to Sara Donati's Into the Wilderness series and hopped from one book to another of light historical romance novels trying to satisfy my craving for "the chase", adventure, love stories and happy endings in another era. Then I discovered Karen Marie Moning. At first I found the titles and the writing style cheesy but I gave it a shot. Wasn't long til I didn't give a snit about that I just wanted to know what was going to happen next!

I must say that the 3 books of this series ressemble the Outlander series but unlike what some other reviewers say, that is not a bad thing! I enjoyed that series immensely and was looking for another series that would entertain me in the same way with a different culture (fast-paced story, action & adventure, passion and historical fiction and heroes that always end up back on their feet in the end). It is inspired by the Last of the Mohicans story. I have never read it but I have seen the movie (with Daniel Day Lewis). I strongly recommend you watch it before starting this series. Oh, and make sure you have time to dedicate to reading this because you won't be able to put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be disappointed, March 11 2003
Last november, I trusted a friend's recommendation and starting reading the 'Outlander series' from Diana Gabaldon. I quickly became addicted to the series, especially "Drums of Autumn". I would read it whenever I had a spare moment. If you loved the first novel, "Outlander", you will love this one as well! Between the two, I don't know which one I enjoyed more. I recommend that you read the series in the order they came out before reading this one. Enjoy!
