The fourth review of the book.
A book you will want to read again!, August 15, 2010 by Florida Book Review.
I just finished reading Knights of the Saltier – Book 1 of the Order of the Saltier Trilogy for the second time, and I am still impressed at how good it is. The author took me on a journey that entertained me, surprised me, and made me want to join the Order of the Saltier, the organization that the book is about. A friend recommended the book to me, and originally I read it just to be polite. I couldn’t put it down! I finished the entire book in one sitting, and then started reading it again to see if it was really that good. It was. The author has a style of writing that is easy to read, and has a way of telling a story that made me want to read faster to see how it was going to end. He may be a new writer, but I think he is one of the best story-tellers I’ve read in a long time.
