What you thought of: Rebellion by James McGee

Rebellion is a great read. The period detail enhances the story rather than overwhelming it. The story is believable, it might just have happened like this given Hawkwood's past and his abilities - and the reputation of both sides for intriguing and plotting. I particularly liked the weaving in of historical events such as the Jacobites in exile in France following the rebellions of 1715 and 1745 and the references to the Auld Alliance giving credence to the plotline - people who loved France but didn't like the way that things were going under Napoleon and could see beyond the ends of their noses. All in all I would recommend this book to anyone who likes historical thrillers that tend towards the alternative history. GORDON J STEADWOOD   Read More
