Learning History in a fun way

I really liked these short stories. They kept my attention and interest. I learned a lot about history.

The narrator, Suzie Athens, has a very enjoyable voice, and a lot of potential, I look forward to listen to more of her narrations and see how she improves!

I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!

Wonderful set of tales

This is one of the best books I've heard/read in a long time. The author meshed history with the stories which lent an air of facination, especially since I love history. While some of the stories had dark elements, they all ended well, something I appreciate. I look forward to reading more works by SR Mallery.
