Product Description

Review

‘Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation.’ Daily Mail

From the Back Cover

The streets of Paris run bloodred while in England, the noble Lazenders hide from history's violent storm behind the walls of their opulent little kingdom. But Toby Lazender, the family's heir, is hunting the brutal murderers of the woman he loved in revolution-torn France, leaving Lazen Castle vulnerable to secret cabal of assassins conspiring to bring the chaos across the channel. There is an obstacle, however, to the Fallen Angels' dark plan: Toby's sister, Lady Campion Lazender. Drawn by a mysterious horseman into a realm of fascination and desire, she sees treachery everywhere and her heart could be leading her to destruction . . . by the hand of the only man she dares to trust." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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!

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 !

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!!!!!

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.

No spoilers, but this was like the love child of Bernard Cornwell (historical novelist) and John le Carre (spy novelist) but with Mills and Boone ( sugary romance) on the midwifery team.
It was a page turner, a roller coaster ride and interesting slant on late 18th century social life in France and England. Some of the characters seemed a bit 2 dimensional, others were well drawn. I thought the romantic elements as bit cringy in parts. Shall read again- I think I read it too fast to appreciate some of the finer points of plot, so shall read it again. It was enjoyable enough for a second read.

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.

This is a fitting follow up to the first novel. Although initially confusing as characters bear the same names as in the first tale, this is set generations after in the time of the French revolution. The story twists and turns and has many surprises. The historical setting mixed with intrigues and dark themes make it an excellent read. One of his best.

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.
