The Unconquered


Loved it! 😍

Victoria is a normal teenager, living an every day normal life – until she isn't and she has no idea what her true heritage is.

Ya'll, this book. This is a book that you need to read! However, I am going to preface this with this: It is not going to be a book that you are going to sit down with and power through in an afternoon. There is a lot of history, a lot of backstory, and so much to wrap your head around.

This could have easily been three books, instead of just one. The book is heavy. While the author weaves a narrative, I can see why it fits so many genres. You are going to jump through several different time periods. There are names, there are battles, there is SO MUCH GOING ON. I felt as though I should have gotten a notebook and started taking notes throughout the read.

There were times that I felt lost, and had to flip back a couple of chapters to refresh my memory, and then jump back to my current page so that I could follow the story afresh. If you love military history - it's here. Do you love straight history? This book has that too. Sci-fi? Historical fiction? Mystery? Thriller? You got it - this book has everything all rolled into one.

I have to give this one four stars because while it was a heavy read, it was still enjoyable. I was pulled into the story. I wanted more. However, there were times that I felt bogged down in details, that if you are not careful, can drag you away a bit from the story line. The author has gone above and beyond in including a little bit of everything to appeal to a wider crowd, but there are moments where you feel the book might drag a little, and then BAM! All the sudden, you are back in the midst of high adventure and the need to have more.

I urge you to give this book a read. Set aside a week during the break to tackle this one, and enjoy the crazy fabulous ride.

Reading is my passion! I LOVE a great book! I have started and maintain three book clubs, one for the military. I am an Army vet, avid reader, editor, and social media professional, history prof, and am hopelessly addicted to pairing people with books.
