This was my first time reading a novel written by Wynne-Jones. I like his easy-to-read writing style. "The Emperor..." is unique, thought-provoking (could this be real?) cleverly crafted to weave back and forth from present day to a war-torn time and kept my interest. Very nice flow chapter to chapter and realistic, moving character relationships through to the end. So many books have a limp, disappointing ending -- this one did not. I am an adult reader.
