My Review:

Ponce: What Actually Happened at the Fountain of Youth is another fun and entertaining read by Jim Halverson. I have had the pleasure of reading all of his previous books and was excited to have the opportunity get my hands on this one. I was not disappointed. I love how his imagination brought this story based on historical events of the Spanish conquistadors and the Native Americans in present day Florida. It really looks like the author did a great job in his research about this time in history. I found myself to look further into it and was fascinated in how it all unfolded. I admired the bravery, courage and determination of the characters in the book. I loved getting to know all of them. I just could not put the book down until I was completely finished. I had no problem reading from start to finish in just one sitting. It was time well spent. 

Ponce: What Actually Happened at the Fountain of Youth is getting four and a half stars from me. I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy reading historical fiction. I look forward to reading more by Jim Halverson to find out where else he will take his readers to next. This one is most definitely worth a read. 

I received a paperback copy of Ponce: What Actually Happened at the Fountain of Youth from the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
