Fantastic review! I am definitely going to grab a copy of this book. It sounds thought provoking and I like that different religions are being discussed.

Thank you for your honest and thorough review! I found it great when you can learn from history and at the same time enjoy a fantasy story, wich are by me always the best stories.

Thought the sample was very interesting. Although the graphic descriptions about the end of WWII was horrifying and realistic, this time period and setting have always interested me. Adding the immortal aspect gave this book an clever twist. The review was excellent. Congrats to the author on having the BOTD!

The book was very well written. Made me believe that the author had some experience as as soikder as some point of their life. They really did well in the reasured of WWII.

Great review! A Buddhist trying to take over the world is certainly a type of story I've never encountered before. How interesting.

Great review! I rarely read historical fiction, but I was intrigued by the sample, and after reading your review and finding out about the religious angles I am drawn to read he rest of this book. I like the idea of an alternate history as well. Thank you for sharing.

This sounds like an interesting concept. It seems like it talks a lot about my own questions on immortality. I am interested to see how the author weaves his views into this book.

Great review! I usually don't like reading about wars and Nazis and stuff, but this sounds really interesting! It sounds like something pretty original, linking fantasy with religion. I would totally read this.
