The beginning had me hooked even though it took a bit for the drama and espionage to begin Tilney was such an idiot Gah SorryI ll stop bringing it up.
There were some lulls, but oddly not all of them bugged me Some of them were needed to understand what was going on in the world and to get to know the character Some other lulls were a meh and What an adventure I had tears in my eyes as we reached the climax and conclusion and the Scarlet Pimpernel took his final bow as such Some of what made this so dramatic is that this man, who is advancing in age and despite his regular attention to his fencing abilities, etc.
, is suffering from the affects of rheumatism I was holding my breath as he initially refuses any help and goes off the face the enemy in France basically alone But plans changed and it all came together in an excellent variation Jack s writing is superb his knowledge of fencing, his use of French phrases and history all kept this story so real to someone who has none of those skills but who appreciates having them written is a way that brought them to life.

What a rousing adventure of revenge, romance and redemptionall great elements of an exciting journey In the opening of book 2 of Mr Caldwell s Jane Austen s Fighting Men , we have the handsome rake and soldier, Captain Frederick Tilney of Northanger Abbey, defending his actions for being a most determined flirt with a duel As he parts ways with his opponent, he tells him You are a fool, Sir Robert, but a brave fool Live and learn from this Trust no woman Famous last words from a man who has yet to be fully struck by love The bolt of lightening strikes as he is re introduced to Miss Viol I enjoyed reading The Last Adventures of the Scarlet Pimpernel It s a companion to The Three Colonels, but it can also stand alone which is good because I haven t read the first yet note to self must read In The Last Adventures of the Scarlet Pimpernel, we find Captain Tilney of Northanger Abbey in love with Violet Blakeney the daughter of Sir Percy, AKA the Scarlet Pimpernel a fact that Captain Tilney is not aware of Sir Percy is very protective of Violet He doesn t think Tilney is worthy of her, and with Tilney s past behaviors, Sir Percy has every right to feel that way But love has a way of changing a man Now Captain Tilney must work hard to prove his worth Unfortunately, nothing seems to go well for poor Tilney Will he eve Jack Caldwell says that it takes a real man to write historical romance And after reading several of his books, I have to agree.
Although I have not yet read the first book in his Jane Austen s Fighting Men series, this second book The Last Adventure of the Scarlet Pimpernel, was amazing I ve been a devoted fan of the Scarlet Pimpernel since watching the made for TV movie from the early 80s in my high school English class Starring Anthony Andrews as Sir Percy, Jane Seymour as Marguerite, and Ian McKellen as Chauvelin, I was immediately swept up by the adventure and romance In fact, I felt that this film was the exception to the book is better than the movie adage I read several of Baroness Orczy s Scarlet Pimpernel novels while in college and graduate school, and I found them scattered, unfocused, and at times actually boring.
So when a lovely copy of The Last Adventure of the S Jack Caldwell s latest novel, The Last Adventure of the Scarlet Pimpernel, is inspired by both The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emma Orczy and Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen It also is a companion novel to Caldwell s The Three Colonels Jane Austen s Fighting Men, but it is a standalone novel In fact, I ve never read The Scarlet Pimpernel just searched for a detailed summary online and I had no trouble following the story.
The novel opens with a bang Captain Frederick Tilney, the heir of Northanger Abbey, is challenged to a duel over Isabella Thorpe, and then his close friend, Colonel Sir John Buford, cut ties with him until he sees the error of his ways, takes responsibility for his shortcomings, and essentially grows up Frederick is not a scoundrel like Wickham, but he needs to sever ties with some unsavory people of his acquaintance.
When he is reacquainted with Violet Blakeney, A delightful story from the author of Pemberley Ranch and The Three Colonels Full review to come on The Calico Critic.
Captain Frederick Tilney, a rake and heir to Northanger Abbey has no wish to change But when he meets Violet Blakeney, daughter of the Scarlet Pimpernel, and when his close friend Colonel Sir John Buford, tells him to take responsibility for his poor reputation, he wonders can he change.
When the Blakeney family is put in danger by a scheming French government official can Tilney redeem himself A very enjoyable romp, a mixture of action and romance with some interesting chracters.
Ooooh what an adventure that was I could hardly put this down It was a nice continuation of The Scarlet Pimpernel series, but the author blended in Jan Austen s worlds So fun This story follows Captain Tilney and Miss Violet who happens to be the now old spy from the Pimpernel books They find love, but he is an immature boy who Violets papa does not approve of after a stupid night Sure I felt bad for Tilney, but I get Dad s side Id have high standards if I had been a badass spy during the Reign of Terror For sure.
