For all my travelling this summer, I'm not going to France, but it was a nice and interesting read anyway. It also made the perfect companion novel to Promise of Blood due to it's focus on the workings of revolutions and the guillotine.
Like the other books in the series I've read so far, it's filled with little drawings, comics and everything else to give it that little bit extra that will cause children to like it even more. Although I'm no longer a child, I enjoyed them as well.
I also learned some new things about France. For I knew about some of their revolutions I had no clue there had been that many!
