You could almost call Last Dance in Kabul by Ken Czech a historical romance. From the first two chapters and the introduction of the male protagonist and the spunky female heroine, I could feel that romance would be a big part of this story. But if you called it a historical romance, a lot of readers like me might miss reading it for fear that there might be too much romance and not enough history or story. That is not true. The attention to detail, and the attention to the realities of war, exotic lands and exotic cultures is superb. If I’m any judge of books, then Ken Czech has a potential bestseller here. The writing is great. It reminded me of a book I read some time ago by Ken Follett. If you have never heard the name Ken Czech, don’t let that deter you from buying this book. It is worth the money. It is professionally done, and this is a name that readers will come to look for in bookstores everywhere.
Honestly, I liked everything about Last Dance in Kabul. The writing is outstanding. The plot is great, and the story is superb. But a book can have all those things in place and still be unsatisfactory if the characters are not compelling. You won’t find two more compelling characters than Reeve Waterton and Sarah Kane. I loved them. I rooted for them to survive and work things out from the third chapter until the exciting conclusion. Their story was so expertly woven between survival and romance that I found it difficult to pull myself away from it. Ken Czech really knows how to blend action and romance.
