Not as well known as Ivanhoe yet of the same ilk. Scott's scene here being France of Louie XI Scott includes copious notes on the period .Would strongly recommend.Best of all it's free.

Good swashbuckling adventure story with perhaps a little too much setting the scene for readers not from the 19th century.

Some improbabilities but still a good yarn with bad baddies.

I have read several Scott novels and have enjoyed them all until this one. The characters are of little interest, the plot is plodding and the end predictable.

This is one of the less well-known Scott books, and it is rarely adapted for film and TV, but I found it interesting and enjoyable. It’s set in an unusual place and period – I only knew a little about the rivalry between France and Burgundy in the late 15th century, and I didn’t know that the kings of France had a Scottish guard.
