Review quote

Successfully blends action, adventure and sex with historical background. Like John Jakes, O'Neal knows how to keep his story moving. ""O'Neal not only writes with great virility, but he has done his historical research well. His ability to make characters come to life is admirable and "The Fallon Blood "is a wonderful way to escape from it all." ""This pulsing new novel...conveys the flavor of history without dullness, and the Palmetto State backdrop adds enormous interest. Entertaining." ""Jordan's pulsing characters and exceptional historical and maritime research successfully evoke the excitement of the birth of a new nation without neglecting the romance, sex, and adventure of the private lives involved. While this Fallon series is a departure for Jordan in terms of setting and place, all of his fans will enjoy this exposition of valor, bravery, and love in American Revolution wars."
