Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
There is nothing predictable about these books and this one does not disappoint. Even though there is a sad realization that comes with starting the first of this set of books, I quickly realized the Company of Archers is in very capable hands. The adventures center around the Holy Land and the March of the Saracens away from Jerusalem. Although they never make an appearance, just the idea of them coming to Acre is enough to put many coins in the hands of the Compsny.
I've lost count on how many books in this series I've read. It's still a good tale. Plot is getting a little repetitive but old characters are phased out and new ones introduced to keep the overall storyline moving. A minor complaint is that throughout the series the author could have used a good proofreader to clean it up a bit where words are obviously missing.
