More About the Author

Bernard Cornwell was born in London, raised in Essex, and now lives mainly in the USA with his wife. In addition to the hugely successful Sharpe novels, Bernard Cornwell is the author of the Starbuck Chronicles, the Warlord trilogy, the Grail Quest series and the Alfred series.

Product Description

A highly entertaining, wonderfully colourful story, now revealed to be written by one of our favourite historical novelists. The gilded family had been the envy and the pride of England for centuries. Never had the Lazenders seemed more powerful or more wealthy. And never had the unseen means of their destruction seemed so close! Yet the heir to the estate was absent. Toby Lazender worked for the British in Revolutionary France -- where he hunted down the men who had murdered the innocent girl he loved. It was his sister, Campion, who oversaw the family's affairs at the 'little kingdom' of Lazen Castle. But Lazen is, unknowingly, a house under siege. The Fallen Angels -- among the most powerful and dangerous men in Europe -- are plotting to bring revolution to England. To succeed, they need money, and the Lazender fortune can provide it. The key to the fortune is control of Campion's future. A web of deceit closes around Lazen, drawing Campion ever closer to a subtle trap that has been laid just for her. Her only hope for survival lies with the Gypsy -- her brother's broodingly aloof horse-master -- a man whose loyalties are at best uncertain. The Fallen Angels is a powerful blend of passion, adventure and intrigue, played out in the shadow of the guillotine and the sunlit splendour of an English estate. It is a worthy successor to A Crowning Mercy, the first chronicle of the Lazender family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 27 Nov 2004
By catherine VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
How fantastic to find both Fallen Angels & A Crowning Mercy
being re-released.
Both are fantastic novels. Well written, literate, absorbing,
utterly unputdownable.
It's been great to revisit the Lazender family after some 20
years, & replace my very shoddy originals.
No spoilers here. Just buy the books,they're wonderful !

5.0 out of 5 stars superb 28 Mar 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is the first of bernard cornwell's novels that i have had the pleasure of reading. This is the best book i have read for some time now. The story is well written, and the plot superb. Like campion, you are never quite sure who to trust in this book, but the ending does not leave you disapointed.
Highly recommended!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging read, duplicitous characters 24 Sep 2005
Format:Paperback
I bought this book because of the French Revolution background, but the story is so much more than that (in fact, Paris during the revolution barely features, but I was hooked anyway!): romance, a strong heroine, characters who earn the reader's trust and don't deserve it (and vice versa). The involvement of an Illuminati sect, the 'Fallen Angels' is well written, and adds to the darkness and danger of 1790s Paris, but seems rather superfluous to the conclusion. It was fun guessing the identity of Lucifer, the shadowy head of the Fallen Angels, and waiting to have my suspicions confirmed: the author neatly reminds the reader of certain character traits,to aid a mental game of 'Snap!' with the many 'dual personalities' in the book. The historical detail was slightly anachronistic, mainly concerning dance and dress (more Victorian than late Georgian or early Regency), but the descriptions of place and the chivalrous behaviour of the characters was certainly evocative of the time. This is my first taste of Bernard Cornwell - or Susannah Kells, in this case - and I shall certainly try and read the other two stories in this sequence!

5.0 out of 5 stars why the author change? 7 Feb 2005
Format:Hardcover
I have loved these books ever since I first read them many years ago. Both books I have were written solely by Susannah Kells. I am glad they are being re-printed, but why the author change? It's confusing and seems a bit unecessary to me. Anyway, for those of you that haven't read them, they are well worth reading, particularly if you are a soppy romantic like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fallen Angels 4 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
What a fantastic read!! A definate must. The only bad thing about this book is that it is the second in the series (the 1st being A Crowning Mercy) and you'll definately want to read more about the characters after the book ends.
Bernard Cornwell is a fabulous writer and this book certainly lives up to his well earned reputation.
Enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pull the other one Bernard! 17 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback
I sincerely hope this was not written by Bernard Cornwall - he may well have done the research, as the bits about the French Revolution are strong. I cannot believe he has the entered the Mills and Boon market himself. Loads of girly drivel among quite a enjoyable storyline. Anyone thinking it would be anything like Sharpe or Gallows Thief would be disppointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars More plot twists than I can remember! 6 July 2007
Format:Paperback
Not the usual fare for Bernard Cornwell but a great read none the less. Set in the French Revolution the story takes us on breakneck ride through a plot in which we lose track of who's the good guys and who's the bad guys. Slightly Mills and Boone, especiallyt at the end, but the descriptions of real events seen through the fictitious storyline are superb as ever and lots of little snippets that make you think about history outside of the story (like the scene at the guillotine where Louis 14th is being executed).
I listened to the audio recording read by Anna Bentink and have read the book, both are equally superb, but I prefered to read this one myself due to the readers voice which I don't think quite fitted the story. Either way though if you like historical novels with plot twist after plot twist, you'll love this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed 11 Aug 2013
By Catie B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This wasn't what I expect from BC. More of a Mills and Boon romance entwined with Cornwell's gift for action and a vague French Revolution setting. I was hooked enough to read to the end but some of it made me squirm!
