The Secret History of the Pink Carnation is written in an engaging manner. When the story segued into the historical component, I noticed that the characters seemed to react in modern manner, which kept distracting me. As the story progressed, I realized that I didn't actually like any of the characters. I didn't dislike the characters; I just wasn't interested in them and I lost interest in the story as well. Near the end, it's apparent that this book is the start of a series and that the modern characters' interactions will continue throughout those books.

Alisa Kester I had much the same reaction, and wasn't interested in reading the other books. It was disappointing, as seemed like such a fun series (I love the Scarlet Pimpernel.)

Tressa I am sad to admit that I have not watched or read anything regarding The Scarlet Pimpernel. The French Revolution is not one of my favorite time periods. But! I will now seek out movies and/or books regarding The Scarlet Pimpernel based on your recommendation. :)

Alisa Kester Get the A&E films with Richard E. Grant as the Pimpernel. He's exquisite in the role! :)
