Description

Revolutionary France is full of blood and bite . . .

1793. Eleanor, once a lowly English maid, is now a member of the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel: renowned for their daring deeds, and for rescuing aristocrats and vampires from the guillotine. When the notorious French diplomat Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand goes missing, Eleanor and the League leap into action. But they uncover two vampire factions feuding for control over humanity’s fate. Talleyrand’s disappearance is part of a larger, more dangerous scheme – one that threatens to throw France into bloody chaos . . .

As the mutiny continues, a once-dead queen stalks the streets of Paris and the Scarlet Pimpernel is nowhere to be found. Eleanor must take control of her own fate. If she doesn’t, she may find herself the victim of the very people she came to save.

The thrilling follow-up to Scarlet, Elusive by Genevieve Cogman is a witty, inventive retelling of the Scarlet Pimpernel, perfect for fans of The Invisible Library series, Kim Newman and Gail Carriger.

'Utterly stunning. The intrigue and adventure keep you turning the page in this exciting tale of revolution, vampires and the guillotine' – T. L. Huchu, author of Library of the Dead, on Scarlet

I was riveted by this thrilling story, about Eleanor, serving the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel and gradually changing her attitude towards them, becoming less of a servant and more of an equal, though not quite there yet. This subtle change in her character is more obvious in this book, and it was good to see her changing in this way. I loved the first book, and I loved this one even more. I would give it ten or more stars if I could, but unfortunately I am limited to five. I did not think the author could surpass the first book, but she has.
Highly recommended. A realistic story of the French Revolution.

Superbly fun follow up to Scarlet, this continues to mesh the scarlet pimpernel, vampires and magic and I loved it. Great continuation of the story, development of the main characters, new threats and further world building make this a really enjoyable historical fantasy. It’s particularly good fun as real life revolutionaries are brought into play, the history / fantasy boundaries are thrillingly permeable. More please
