I'm in the middle of the fifth volume at the moment, so I assume I'm up to the hilt in McElroy material. He really does know how to write a rollicking story. The boys are still very common in their outlooks and attitudes, but they have become both more hardened to the things they see around them - and a lot more competent as soldiers. The Deacon Josiah Klegg plays an increasingly important part, and is an interesting character by himself. McElroy gets a little slow moving as he's trying to jam all that stuff in, but it remains a fun and light read. I could honestly start this book over again after I finish it, and I don't do that often.
