As I was setting up this post, I noticed in the author blurb that he is working on the sequel to The Prince of Prigs. I must say a hearty, "HUZZAH" to that, as I thoroughly enjoyed this book! And the way in which the end of Prince was set up was great. I knew the end was coming as the pages were getting fewer and fewer by the minute, but thank goodness Mr. Anglorus does not give us one of those abrupt endings that leaves a reader hanging.

I learned as much about the English Civil Wars from readin

I thoroughly enjoyed this book by Anthony Anglorus. It was a delightful "backstage" view into the lives of several powerful figures in history with a lovely dose of fiction for sheer entertainment.

Many questions popped into my head while reading this, mostly regarding the actual English law and the blatant disregard so many of the elected politicians had for it. (Of course, here we are centuries later and that is still an issue we're dealing with.) Some of the "court" scenes were actually a li

Adventure? Check.
Intrigue? Check.
A hell of a good read? Double check!

I must first blame the Seventeenth Century Lady for getting me so fascinated by this era…and I must now blame Mr. Anglorus for fully thrusting me into the love of it. The English Civil War is not one that is really focused on in a lot of books, which is a pity because it is a very fascinating time and honestly, it’s almost unbelievable in how it occurs. I mean, beheading your own King? (Poor Charles I!) Usurping the power and r

A good read with characters true to the time period and conflicts of seventeenth century England. The author is knowledgeable about King Charles 1, Cromwell, and the time period. The story takes you on a journey where you hope the Highwayman is successful as he steals in Robin Hood fashion, and maneuvers the treacherous world of good and evil always for the good of the Crown. The author treats you to a world that only few can imagine and leaves you wishing for more

I really enjoyed reading The Prince of Prigs, I love that Captain James Hind is a Robin Hood type. He didn’t believe in killing someone if he didn’t have too. I love reading historical fiction and but I am not a historian, especially European history. I loved reading this story and thinking that I am so glad that I didn’t live in that era. The characters were all very interesting and was very interesting to read. There is shooting, beheading, killing and other bloody stuff in this book, but it i ...more

I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I'll admit, I don't know much about England and Scotland's history surrounding the Roundheads and Cromwell, aside from the basics, so I started this book with a very open mind. Immediately, I found myself giggling at the antics of James as he tried to escape from soldiers dressed as a prostitute. I was not disappointed throughout the rest of the novel. Although I found parts a bit slow, as a historical fiction author, I understand sometime
