'This is as enjoyable and fun a series as any I have ever read bar none. In my opinion the author is every bit as good as Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series. Every bit as good as the Sookie Stackhouse series. Every bit as good as any series of paranormal goings on I have ever read. And I promise you, as an avid reader of sci fi and fantasy for nearly 50 years, I have read my share and then some. I have rapidly become a huge fan of Ms. Domanski's writing and am excitedly looking forward to reading the next of the series. If you like good action, good character development, good plotting and the realm of paranormal abilities, this is the series for you.' - Nolan Tomlinson, reviewer.
Flags stir powerful emotions, and few objects evoke such a sense of duty and love of one's homeland. In April 1861, the first flag of a new republic flew over North Carolina. The state had just seceded from the union, and its citizens would soon have to fight for their homes, their families, and their way of life.The Flags of Civil War North Carolina is the history of this short-lived republic (which later joined the Confederacy), told through the banners that flew over its government, cavalry, and navy. From the hand-painted flag of the Guilford Greys to the flag of the Buncombe Riflemen--made from the dresses of the ladies of Asheville--this collection is an exceptional tribute to the valiant men who bore these banners and to their ill-fated crusade for independence.
