much I found the book contained some technical imperfections The author was ind enough to share her process writing and vetting a book and her many years of experience with different ways of bringing a book to print She graciously promised to take my comments about the book into consideration in her future writing So take it all together the Huguenot Sword was an exciting satisfying read a tribute to faith and its struggles to grow and an opportunity for me to learn firsthand something about how an author gets a book out of her head and into print or into my Kindle in this case The storyline is good with many probably accurate historical facts and exciting tensions both on the religiouspolitical and the romantic level I d like to hear a bit about the Huguenots true convictions and spirituality There s a lot of casual bloodshed and inexplicable attacks and counter attacks The battle for La Rochelle is gruesome tragic but again probably true Unfortunately the text is simply not edited at all full of missing or leftover words incomplete sentences bad grammar spelling mistakes poor dialogue which seriously puts me off Also the book finishes with too many loose ends for my taste. E when those in power launch a bold plan to destroy the group One wrong move can be fatal But the ordeal of Paris pales in comparison to the possible annihilation of their faith and people at the battle of La Rochel.

Young heretical religion The nobility scorned them as ruffians to the oppressed Protestants they were saviors but to the Cardinal Guards they were a pestilence needing to be terminated The situation becomes desperat.
