Product description

Review

"As usual, this is historical fiction on a grand scale, a period-piece thriller that will enrapture fans of the long-running series. Sharpe stays true to his down-and-dirty roots, and Cornwell steps back into Sharpe's world as though he never left it. A boisterous return of a favorite character." -- Booklist

"This is first-rate historical fiction that any fan of the genre will enjoy." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Last seen in 2007's Sharpe's Fury, the indestructible Richard Sharpe has one more battle to fight in bestseller Cornwell's rousing 24th novel featuring the English rifleman. . . . The action builds to a high-stakes sword fight between Sharpe and a French officer that's resolved in an unexpected and satisfying way. Series fans will be pleased to see Sharpe retire from the army on a high note." -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for the Sharpe Series: "Prepare to have your buckles swashed." -- People

Richard Sharpe has the most astounding knack for finding himself where the action is . . . and adding considerably to it. -- Wall Street Journal

"Excellently entertaining. If you love historical drama, then look no further."
--
Boston Globe

"If only all history lessons could be as vibrant." -- San Francisco Chronicle

Cornwell's cinematically detailed battle pieces [are] literal tours de force. -- Washington Post

An irresistible combination of rousing military history, penetrating character analysis, and suspenseful martial intrigue . . . stirring British military history at its finest." -- Booklist

"Great fun." -- Kirkus
