I had to read this book for school and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!! It was AMAZING!!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book. It is a very good book. It takes place in the time of Reign of Terror, that occurred in France. I loved the plot because it had so many twists and turns, that left you wanting more, and wondering. I many a time had a smile on my face because of the cunning of the elusive Scarlet Pimpernel. It was a great book, and I thought that the characters were depicted very realistically, because it showed their mistakes along with their accomplishments. It also showed their weaknesses. All in all this was a FABULOUS book, and I recommend it to everyone who enjoys historical fiction that involves true love, and much action.


In 1792, during the French Revolution's Reign of Terror, an English aristocrat known to be an ineffectual fop is actually a master of disguises who, with a small band of dedicated friends, undertakes dangerous missions to save members of the French nobility from the guillotine. (this is a very brief summary, I did not want to give anything away.)
