The author writes, "Three aristos who were being sent to Paris for trial were absolutely spirited away from under the very nose of the highly efficient police administration of the province. Spirited away There was no other word for it And the whole thing was obviously the work of those abominable English, who were emissaries of the devil, for no flesh and blood human crea...more

Although Mam'zelle Guillotine was a good adventure story, it wasn't quite up to the standard of the other Scarlet Pimpernel books. The conclusion to the book was weak and there were many repeated details, which became a little boring. Still, the scenes with Percy were marvellous, and Lady Blakeney featured much more prominently than normal. 3 1/2 stars.

yes, i know that orczy is anti-revolution, but it irks me that gabrielle mysteriously (and perhaps tragically) disappears while her aristocratic ex-lover, who had her imprisoned in the bastille for 16 years, gets to live happily ever after with his family in england. and seriously, who wouldn't be out for blood if an ex-lover was responsible for an indefinite imprisonment simply to get them out of the way?

Another excellent and rollicking adventure from the Scarlet Pimpernel. He isn't actually around for most of the book, but Marguerite now accompanies him. This is proably one of my favorites so far, Sir Percy is excellent, his love for Marguerite not quite as overshadowed by his love of honor as precviously, and the Gang of the Scarlet Pimpernel as endearing as ever.
A lovely read and highly reccomended for any fan of that great, elusive adventurer...

I liked this one as much as the first book. So far my favorites are this book, The first book (The Scarlet Pimpernel) and El Dorado. On to the next one!
Mentioned in my old diary. Enjoyable historical romp!
Great book, though I am a bit mad at Sir Percy!
