I enjoyed this historical fiction filled with adventure and intrigue set in 17th century France and England. At first, it seemed slow to me, but once Rochefort and Dariole meet Saburo and head to England, the pace definitely picked up.
I really loved this book. It was a compelling read, and a page turner. I loaned it to a friend, and she just could not get through it, due to "homoerotic themes".
Not suitable for teenagers. Ms. Gentle is now writing erotica under a pseudonym. You have been warned!
