    1. Do NOT look at the size of this book and be put off by its heft by any means. NonononoEvery page-turning minute spent reading Lucifer's Drum is well worth it, whether or not you are a Civil War aficionado.If you finely mix the writing of Ken Burns and James Michener you have Bernie MacKinnon. Historical fiction at its best, you learn while you read without even realizing it! Intrigue and reality with an awesome story-line makes for some stay up all night reading.


    2. I haven't read many true historical books in the past few years. If I'd come into contact with writing as detailed, and well-researched as Lucifer's Drum more often, I know I'd read many more historical works than I have in the past. I felt a connection with the actions of the book, as well as the people represented throughout. Bernie Mackinnon has ensured that I'll be reading more historical fiction in the future. I received a copy of this book through the Giveaway program. All opinions within [...]


    3. I loved it. The twists and turns kept me guessing, and I was disappointed when my time travel back into history was over. The story of the Civil War became more than a list of battles. I met a cadre of heroes and villians with multiple agendas and tactics. Lucifer's Drum is one of the best novels I've read in a long time.


    4. Great book! If you're a fan of historical fiction or the Civil War era, this is the book for you. Long, but good.
