    "This book will keep you "treasure hunting" for hours on end, which as a parent is something I know you can appreciate if you have curious kids that are hard to control. It's just the right length and everyone in my family loves it. I was a little hesitant to pick it up after a friend said she was disappointed but I'm very pleased."

    "This book has so many historical inacuracies I had to put it down after a few chapters. I really like Masello as a writer and I figured this would be good too. The story wasn't so bad but I just couldn't stand the errors. Shame."
