In the bustling medieval port of Venice, Casca saves a boy's life, and becomes embroiled in an ancient blood feud. It seems that the eager young man, Marco is desperately in love with a girl he cannot have . . . a Donatello. The powerful Donatello family would sooner kill the lowborn Marco than allow him into the family. But, that is something Casca will not allow to happen, even when he finds himself caught in the middle of a bloody, merciless war.

Casca the Defiant

Written by Shawn Scanlon on September 2nd, 2007

  • Book Rating: 1/5

When it came out, SSgt Sadler's Casca series was fairly good escape fiction. However, after the first few books he started using ghost writers - bad ones. The ghost writer who wrote this one should go back to selling insurance for his brother in law. Poorly researched, and written in an overly florid, verbose style it is entirely predictable and boring. I stopped after struggling through two disks. You want good historical fiction on Marco Polo, try The Journeyer by I forget his name, Jennings I think.
