    I may well have enjoyed this book had I realised it was book two of a series with the Novel The Dust That Falls from Dreams being the first in the Series by Louis de Bernieres I picked this one up in hard copy and it didn t state that it was part of a series on the jacket or in the premise which seemed a shame I found the book very difficult to get into and could not keep track of the characters until half ways through the novel I was con
