It wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. It was a little bit dry and I couldn't read it it in one go so it's better to read on chapter and then make a pause. The idea of the alternative History is amazing but in this book it just didn't work for me like I hoped ! But it's still very interesting and I want to try sone other Periods in this series.
