The Black Hawk: by Joanna Bourne
Anyone who knows me knows I love spy novels, and mysteries, Joanna Bourne writes a good spy novel and she really knows her time period. This one in particular was well done.

What happens when two young spies, and when I mean young I mean early teens, on opposite sides of the conflict come together for a time to work together, knowing that they will soon be enemies once again. We have met these two in previous novels and so it was only time until their story would be told.

This is the story of Hawker and Justine or (Owl) and theirs is a very long very complicated story. Starting in 1818 London Hawker is in danger and Justine is trying to get to him to warn him and is nearly assassinated for her pains. Laying near death their story is told in flashbacks, to Paris just after Robespierre's death to after Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo.

Ms. Bourne has created a very interesting cast of characters and I am interested to see what is next? 4 stars, it is a great series and I recommend it.
