Love Celia Rees' Witch Child and Sorceress. Pirates was also good. This one fell short of those but wasn't bad.
This book is enticing and wonderful, the plot captures your attention while the characters capture your heart. This book is a perfect find on a rainy day just sit back and enjoy. No doubt that anyone who picks this book up will not be able to put it down.
5.0 out of 5 starsKeeps you guessing from the first page!

Celia Rees did a remarkable job with this book. Sovay's character is flawless and her daring nature gets her into all sorts of juicy trouble. Stir in some French Revolution drama and BAM! You have one fabulous book. Easily one of my new favorites.

This book sat on my bookshelf for ages before I finally picked it up to read it. I had got the recommendation on a radio show and thought it was worth trying. The style was too much action, as though the author was worried about the reader's attention span if nothing happened for a few pages. I gave up after about 50 pages and moved on. This is worth reading if you like historical action books but I wouldn't recommend it generally.

Hugely enjoyable - strong female lead and lots of action, with highway robbery, the French Revolution, the Terror, and a great depiction of France and England in the 18th century. I loved the character of Sovay, and her family too. I couldn't put it down!
