I loved this book. As the third book of a great trilogy it was all I hoped for;except another continuation. Enough history to interest me but very fluid and easy to read. Martin did an excellent job in maintaining his characters who I fell in love with in Push Not The River. I would recommend to anyone with an interest in European history, but they must read them all to get the full effect.
This book covers a time and place in history that I'm not altogether familiar with: the Polish revolt of the 1830's. It starts with the small beginnings of revolution with a few cadets (it's always them) and goes through the (view spoiler) end of the revolt. Like many novels about eastern Europe, it centers around the lives of members of an extended family.

What I didn't like about it: there were moments that just felt clumsily done. Sometimes it would be an event, so

The Warsaw Conspiracy is an uplifting tale of a very moral and patriotic early 19th century Polish family living under the subjugation of Russian domination. Martin keeps the dramatic tension high throughout the novel with a budding love story set against the ever present fear of imprisonment or worse as an uprising against the oppressive Russian invaders threatens and then comes to fruition. With strong, well-painted characters that you care about, the author makes you turn each page with curio ...more

The time is 1830-31 when there is even greater upheaval in Poland. Russia has taken over large portions of the country causing deprivation, starvation, and the ultimate sacrifice for many of its citizens as they struggle for mere survival. Still Anna struggles to maintain her family as the story emphasis shifts to her grown children. Each one must face his/her own challenges. This panoramic story of one family's strength, devotion, and sacrifice draws to a close in book 3. These books remain clo ...more
This book shared a part of European history that I wasn't familiar with. While I enjoyed the book, it wasn't quite as rich in character development as the previous two in the series. The characters were wooden and forced and the plot held few surprises. Looking forward to a fresh start in Martin's next book.
Historic fiction that teaches Polish history

The trilogy is suspenseful and educational with colorful characters. A better way to study history than any Western Civilization text book. This story gives the reader an intense look into the people and the heart of Poland.

The Warsaw Conspiracy" is the third book of a trilogy that also includes "Push Not The River" and "Against a Crimson Sky". I highly recommend all three!

I became much more invested in this story than I'd initially thought I would. I haven't read either the firs tor second novels in this series, but won a copy of The Warsaw Conspiracy as part of a Goodreads giveaway. The story is completely addicting, even with history having already spoiled the outcome for everyone. And the characters were well-enough developed that after a few chapters I really didn't mind having not read the first two books (although I would still like to, especially the first ...more
Great ending to the Trilogy!
Po sutym, smakowitym i wyszukanym posiłku, na stole pojawił się mało udany deserek. Taka właśnie jest ta książka. Bohaterowie okrzepli, postarzeli się, dojrzali. Przez zamglone firanki przesącza się nieco atmosfery poprzednich dwóch tomów. Jednak to już nie ta sama historia. Niestety...

Enjoyable read to complete the trilogy of Poland's struggle to maintain it's freedom as an independent nation. Poland is of interest to me personally because my ancestors were Kashubes who emigrated from the Hel Peninsula region of the country.
I liked how the author developed Iza into as strong a character as her aunt is in the previous books. I'm always drawn to historical fiction, particularly when based on real-life instances and individuals' lives... one learns much about life by reading hi
It was wonderful to read the final installment of this epic saga....full of historical details, the sacrifices made by this family....the struggle of the Poles against Russia....would love to see this made into a t.v movie series...loved how Anna and Zofia's families become intertwined...looking forward to read the authors next book...

This was the ending? It still left you with many questions and felt really rushed. It was based on the cadet revolution and really most of the characters, I had grew to love, were just glossed over. He should have just stopped at the first book that he had a guide to go by. I did like Zofia's ending.

I was happy to read the last book in this series -- a nice way to tie up the based-on-fact historical fiction of a family who could have been like my paternal ancestors. A glimpse into what my family's past may have been like.

I admit I struggled at first but after I got into it, I really did enjoy the romance and suspense! So interesting to learn of the struggles of other countries. ~ And easier to read it in a historical fiction form : )

I found the history of Poland fascinating and loved this final book in James Conroyd Martins series about Poland. As with his other books, it was very well written and engaging.
A great story and after a third through it, I had a hard time putting it down. I look forward to reading more from Martin.
I loved the first two books. This one was a bit harder to read.
