    As it turns out, vendettas were pretty badass This book s a pretty good read, and not too difficult at all If you re a sucker for the darker side of history, this is probably right up your alley.

    Generally pretty good would have given it 3.5 stars if I could A little too much on the imagery of dogs eating corpses for true bedtime reading, though.
