Cast in Time - Count (book 3)
Reviewed it on September 29, 2023Very nice and a good read like book 1. I tried to buy book 2 but unfortunately I can find it. Didn't you publish this volume?
Reviewed it on September 25, 2023Another good book.
Awesome alternative historical timeline series
Reviewed it on September 21, 2023This series is a fun romp involving a reincarnated old man from the 21st century occupying the body of a medieval baron. Navigating politics and beliefs of the time while introducing new technologies, weaponry, tactics, philosophies and strategic planning. These books are a real fun read (I also highly recommend Ed's other books - all of them).
Very interesting use of opportunity
Reviewed it on September 21, 2023Excellent
Reviewed it on September 10, 2023Really enjoying this story keep up the good work.
Reviewed it on September 6, 2023All three series worth reading together
Production and management techniques are key
Reviewed it on September 5, 2023Loved the practical approach. He's being driven to be the king of England at the least but with a string dash of real politics. Spelling needs a lot of work. Syntaxes suffers by the absence of definite articles among other items.
Reviewed it on September 2, 2023Another great book from a great author
Another fun book.
Reviewed it on September 9, 2023I really enjoy Ed's books.Since I am an engineer it's fun to see how the protagonist solves his challenges. My ancestors were from Cornwall so it is also fun to see Cornwall ruling the area.
Great linkage with cross supports of technology
Reviewed it on September 6, 2023Some one needs to do a copy edit. A global edit for the word “new” and replace with “knew” with a human to validate would be good. Saw this several times. Possible over use of a spell-check program instead of an editor? Really like the variation of the threads in the story and it is not a copy paste repeat. Looking forward to the next book.
