Customer Review

on 26 August 2012
Although I am a massive Heyer fan, this book takes a little while to get fully into. Beauvallet is certainly a character like no other, possibly because this book is Elizabethan, whilst her others tend to be Regency. There is a lot of adventure of the swashbuckling type in it, but the characters talk out loud to themselves, which is possibly something more in line with a play rather than a novel, so it may be that Heyer was trying to emulate Shakespeare in the writing of this book. Some of the dialogue is in keeping with the era "Oddstooth" and suchlike. Saying that, better to read a "bad" Heyer, as it still compares with the "best" of some other authors.
