5.0 out of 5 stars Young Bloods - Best Historical novel of the year!, 12 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Young Bloods (Wellington and Napoleon 1): Revolution 1 (Hardcover)
Just finished this. To be honest I love his Roman series and was not quite sure what to make of this foray into the Bernard Cornwell territory of the Duke of Wellignton and Napoleon. However, Scarrow has proved to be as gifted at depicting the manners and setting of the era every bit as believably as he has created the barrack room life of the Roman legions. Young Bloods is the first in a series of four books apparently, so we followers of Conn Iggulden might find this a suitable follow up to the Emperor quartet (except this time there really is an Emperor!).
Young Bloods begins in 1769 when both these sons of destiny were born. It follows their childhood into the first throws of the revolution and by the end of it they are fully fledged soldiers. The book is pacy, the action is breath-taking and there's a real sense of being there as history is being made. I can't wait for the next book.
