The Hellfire Rebellion

by Simon Hawke

Book 10 in the Time Wars series. This is even more of a history lesson than The Nautilus Sanction. Mr. Hawke uses the Headless Horseman, but nothing else from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The rest of the background is culled from historical events around 1765 Boston. That's not really a bad thing, because even though I still enjoy Mr. Hawke's characters, I'm getting tired of the recurring bad guys. There's also way too much explanation of back story. It wasn't so bad when I was picking up these books piecemeal from the used bookstores, but having just read the events being retold, it's boring as all get out. I would have much preferred that space to be used for new narrative. Oh, well. He has two more chances to get it right. The Hellfire Rebellion, however, is just waiting room material.
