REBELS & DESPERADOS (REBEL EMPIRE Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
5 Star Review - Excellent Trilogy plus one. All four are outstanding reads!
By Larry Thompson
"Excellent alternate history saga woven through with historical characters and plausible scenarios. Stuart can certainly write well as he weaves a common theme through this historical trilogy (with a marvelous fourth book loaded with short stories and scenarios he couldn't work into his main three books) following a half century of service, intrigue, betrayals, obsessions, strategies, wins and losses. He primarily follows one family through it all; it is fascinating and unlike anything I've ever read. It certainly turns history upside down. Stuart develops characters exceedingly well and makes you love, hate, admire or fear them. It was what I call a really fun read (admittedly, it helps to have a basic knowledge or our history so that one can see the "divergences", understand and delight it them)."
Reviews like this one are what keep me writing. - J. R. Stuart
