I enjoyed the series...you need to purchase all three books to reach the end of the story, but that was fine. I happen to like the historical novels. The author encourages her readers to read actual accounts of Pullman, which would be interesting.
Judith Miller is a FANTASTIC writer. I couldn't hardly put the book down. When I did, however, it seemed to me that when things would happen in REAL TIME for me, I would automatically think, "Did this just happen or was it something I remembered from the book?" I will absolutely consider her for any future books.
