Ed, I have enjoyed all your books. I have a lot of English and Cornish ancestors so it is nice to see you writing about both areas. When writing it is hard to find every typo and grammar error so they don't bother me. Looking forward to book 5.

Good job, Mr. Nelson. You continue to impress me with the quality of your work, and I am always hooked on the next one. Having read all of your works, I enjoyed this one, particularly to the plot development of the now Earl of Cornwall. I find it humorous that you include a likable female like Cathy in each of your series, and I hope to follow this side story in the future, maybe a short story about her adventures with her siblings. Anyway, thanks again for an afternoon of good fun and entertainment please continue writing not just for us but for yourself I do hope you find as much excitement as I do when imagining your many varied worlds and characters.

Logical introductions to improvements

Smoother transition to next phases and few if any typos. Looks like attention to correct words has been paid. It makes it much easier to read and to enjoy the story line. Previous books had a few places where a wrong word choice broke the story line, with questions on what word was intended. Spell check does not always correctly insert the word that matches the plot line. Great improvement!

Story is solid, better than the last part. Could use a bit of work on the typos, proper quotes, and paragraphing, but nothing one could not fix.

Comfortable Placeholder

This book is a semi-quiet interlude, hopefully, between more active books. The character development in this book is what makes it most interesting.
