James Crofter’s life takes a drastic change in I, James by Mike Hartner. James is a Prince that lives a wonderful life with loving parents, until a family disagreement changes everything. After an argument James is taken from his home and placed in unchartered territory. He grows up in slavery and made to deal with a hard life. James should not be underestimated because as soon as he can James makes his escape.

James than helps others and also takes time to find love with Rosalind. This story was an adventure that readers will take through James life. Having not read any of the author’s previous work, I found myself intrigued by this historical fiction and James’ strength to overcome. This was an entertaining book to read.
