5 Stars. Transported To Another World.
Being a lover of historical fiction I was really happy to be hooked on the novel from the beginning. Taylor is such a good storyteller. Shiri, a shepherd girl, is fifteen years old when Pharaoh’s army arrives, her father tells her to run and she does. This sets the pace for the rest of the novel; it is fast, full of action but still very emotional. The characters are believable and Shiri comes completely alive as the novel progresses and throughout the story she plays many parts. There is danger which creates suspense and tension coupled with deceit and revenge and a bit of romance all good ingredients for a great novel. A lovely sense of time and place was crafted and I really felt in the various locations. The dialogue was tight and made the book an easy read. An emotional page turner, I look forward to the next novel by D S Taylor.
