Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] corker…Fast and gripping, the story is carried by Cornwell's easy hold on vivid period detail…Sharpe's final escape is literally dazzling. Readers will relish this adventure and eagerly await Sharpe at Waterloo.” Publishers Weekly
“This volume, a brilliant historic action, adventure, and love story, appeals to a wide audience, much like the other titles in this fabulous series. Frederick Davidson performs an unparalleled dramatization. A fascinating and educational work that will do credit to any library.” Library Journal
“Davidson reads in a dramatic British accent with a deadpan undertone that rivets your attention. This is a first-rate historical novel.”  Kliatt
