"A Passel of Hate" is Editor's Choice in Historical Novel Review

The review of "A Passel of Hate" from the Historical Novel Review reads in part:"Epley does a thrillingly effective job fleshing out his many characters (there are no one-dimensional heroes—or villains—here), and he lavishes attention on the kinds of real-world details too many historical novelists gloss over—readers will learn as much about trail rations and camp organization as about higher political ideology, and Epley’s undemonstratively evocative prose and tightly controlled narrative keep…See More

South Carolina reenactors like A Passel of Hate

"A Passel of Hate" captured the true essence of the war in the backcountry during the Revolutionary War.  The main character, Jacob Godley, was treat.  "A Passel of Hate" ranks right up there with any of Allen Eckert's or Kenneth Roberts historical novels.  Every arm-chair historian should have "A Passel of Hate" in their library. ---John Moss    Captain, South Carolina Independent RangersSee More
