This book is outstanding.... Though a "plot twist" is not that surprising, we have a bit of annoying head-hopping (going from one character's mind to another with no notification from the author), and a few pages illustrate nothing, the book is still written with eloquence. The poetic voice of the writer and lovable characters make up for it. From the characters' relationships to the hunt for the "Scarlet Pimpernel," the plot is a delicate web; if you understand and appreciate the art of literature, you will see it, too. I'm not giving away the ending; however, it is ultimately satisfying!
