Goodreads Summary: Michael Fallon, bonded servant, with trouble in Ireland just behind him, comes to the New World with one desire—to found a dynasty that need bend the knee to none.
In Charleston, South Carolina, Fallon begins. From bondsman to rice planter, from planter to privateer; from the beautiful, disturbingly sensual Elizabeth Carver to the lovely and loving Gabrielle Fourrier; from peace to the greatest Revolution the world had ever seen—a novel beating with the passion of The Fallon Blood.
How I Got It: I bought it.
When I Got It: I had the mass market paperback but since it is Robert Jordan decided I wanted to have hardcover so I replaced my copy a few months ago.
Why I Want To Read It: I love Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series and I also love historical fiction so the meeting of RJ + historical fiction sounds like something perfect for me. And the main character comes from Ireland (my absolute favorite country).
