Bravo Ms. Miller! Very engaging story. Index of characters at end is a useful reference, both for this book and future reference. I read this with google earth at hand and was able to find many of the locations referenced, which for me added to the story. This combined with Ms. Miller's interview made me feel I could understand the the journey made to get to Troy, as well as the local geography the characters would be fighting on. While I recognize there could possibly be some small amount of writers initiative taken with some of the local geography, a rough map in the back would not have hurt my feelings.
