Quotes

'The action is swashbuckling, the characters believable and you will very quickly find yourself so immersed that you will be back in 1794, in the midst of the panic, the danger and the action, in the blink of an eye. Not only is there action but we have thrilling adventure and must be prepared for opulence and squalor too, this is a no-holes-barred read, gritty and exciting'
