The Mark of a Man - Maggie Lee First and foremost, my general stance has been I don't read historical stories, just have never liked them. Wanting to add some variety and expand my reading, I decided with the new year I would try to read a least one book a month outside my normal reading. Through gentle prodding and encouragement I was assured that this would be the right book to begin with.

I have to say that this was the perfect book for me to start with. The story was so well written and I was so drawn to the characters, the adventure and the anticipation of what was going to happen that the time period in which it was set didn't even really register with me. That being said, the ending has me screaming that it just stopped. Lucky for me the next book is out and I can continue the adventure of Kit and Alec.
