This book, the second in a series*, had a slightly different tone than the first book, and I really enjoyed that. While the first book was a more straightforward swashbuckling tale, this book, while still featuring a decent amount of action, intrigue, mystery, and etc., seemed to have more of a message. There were some things that happened that I would have liked to hear more about, but that isn't a big deal, and who knows, maybe they will come up in later books. Once again, this was a fast read, and a great choice for readers who like historical fiction.
