5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly executed, hugely enjoyable, vivid and exciting., 4 Aug 2008
This review is from: Sovay (Hardcover)
It's lovely to read about a girl who doesn't just wait for the men to do the action but gets out there, pistol at the ready. But this swashbuckling novel - I think that's the right word for it - as well as being a thrilling, satisfying read, also opens the door onto a little-known part of British history - this might have been the 'land of the free' but habeas corpus was suspended, the prisons filled up with people arrested purely on suspicion who stayed there for years, all because of a government in panic about the Revolution happening across the Channel in France. Uncomfortable modern-day parallels spring to mind at once. In this dangerous atmosphere Sovay and her friends have a job to remain alive and at liberty. The novel takes you into the last days of revolutionary Paris - wonderfully atmospheric - and Sovay plays opposite a bunch of hugely attractive heroes. Compulsive.
