"Rousing . . . a complex plot, written with wit, suspense,
intrigue, and action. Along with a flawed but likable character,
[Hunter] reveals the bloody history of the French Revolution, and
establishes solid ground for the upcoming sequels." --Publishers

"Seth Hunter has a more natural storyteller's eye than Patrick O'Brian . . . well wrought and deftly told." --Daily Telegraph
