The Kingdoms of Savannah Review

The Kingdoms of Savannah Review

Title: The Kingdoms of Savannah
Author: George Dawes Green
Style: Historical Fiction, Mystery
Rating: 4/5

Thank you Celadon Books for the advanced copy of this book in exchange for my review.  The Kingdoms of Savannah come out July 19th!

The Kingdoms of Savannah is rich in Georgia history and adds a bit of mystery as well.  It tells the tale of Morgana Musgrove as she recruits her children to solve a murder and disappearance while also telling the untold tale of Savannah's past. The story of Charles Augustus Lafayette Lamar as well as the soldiers of the king and the hidden kingdom. These were things left out of my history books growing up and I found it fascinating, sad, brave and incredible.  The story started out a bit slow for me but I am stubborn and almost never DNF (do not finish) a book especially when it's gifted to me to review. Once I was about 1/3 of the way through I was more invested and I was glad I did not give up on it. I definitely recommend reading this one if you are a fan of history and mystery.
