    7. More than I expected and didn't fail to deliver. I enjoyed the storyline and character development. There was just enough of intrigue to keep you turning the pages. The feel of the book in an odd comparison reminded me somewhat of a hybrid of The Three Musketeers and Sherlock Holmes. Overall the story was pretty entertaining and I would recommend the book to a friend. I just bought the second one today to continue the series.

    8. Good action spy novel at times a little too much discription and telling the reader instead of relying on inferencing.

    9. Received through a Giveaway.There is a lot going on in this book as it is obviously being used to set up a much longer series. In this book alone, we have Robinson Crusoe and Friday arriving in London, setting up their relationship, two secret societies with potential or confirmed ties to different characters past, a number of supernatural flourishes, and three different attacks on various groups' homes or bases. All while being interspersed with passages relating Crusoe's and Friday's experien [...]

    10. I received this ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.I have never read Robin Crusoe, but this book still intrigued me. I loved the premise of people getting rescued from a deserted island and then joining a covert spy mission. The problem with the story was that it was a bit boring. It started with Friday and Crusoe landing in London on the ship they had been working on. Crusoe does flash back to his times on the island with Friday. The flashbacks show his meeting with her and the [...]

Shortly after they arrive in London, the writer Daniel Defoe offers to buy the rights to their amazing story. In normal circumstances, this close-knit pair of friends would be reluctant to open up to a stranger—however, circumstan [...]

    12. Clever spin-off from the Robinson Crusoe novel, but overall just ok. I liked the flashbacks of Robinson and Friday on the island better than their present "present-day" adventures. I don't think I'll continue the series.
