Summary

The first in a dazzling, commercial, historical adventure series set in the extravagant and deadly world of the French Revolution. A whirlwind of action, science and magic reveals, with a diverse cast of fearless heroines, a band of rebels like no other.

Camille, a revolutionary's daughter, leads a band of outcasts - a runaway girl, a deserter, an aristocrat in hiding. As the Battalion des Morts they cheat death, saving those about to meet a bloody end at the blade of Madame La Guillotine. But their latest rescue is not what she seems. The girl's no aristocrat, but her dark and disturbing powers means both the Royalists and the Revolutionaries want her. But who and what is she? In a fast and furious story full of the glamour and excesses, intrigue and deception of these dangerous days, no one can be trusted, everyone is to be feared. As Camille learns the truth, she's forced to choose between loyalty to those she loves and the future.

Started great, then bored me to death

This book start with a really good hook. It's fun and action packed and characters are interesting. But then, it just annoyed me and bored me. I stopped reading for a couple of months because I simply didn't care anymore. It dragged on abc characters became so unbearable! it just dragged on and on. I came to highly dislike most characters. Camille, the oh so great leader, whines so much about how she's responsible for the safety of her battalion, then proceeds to put them in terribly dangerous situations and completely ignores when someone has opinions. Then whines again cuz, wouldn't you know it, her plan failed and her friends were nearly killed, but once again, she won't listen to anyone for help, all the while whining. Nevermind you she was unfaithful in so many ways so many times. I know characters with flaws are realistic, but Camille was incredibly irresponsible, whiny and unbearable. ***Partial spoilers*** . . . I desperately HATE when a love triangle, especially one involving lgbtq people, is resolved because one of them was actually a traitor who never loved them. I hate when a character who in his past has always been kind and loving suddenly comes in all villain like, with stupid cheese villain lines and behavior. As for the narrator, I think she was okay, but her distinction between male and female voices is not good. They all sound femenine.

I could not stop listening. The author drew you into the story and lives of it’s flawed heroes making you feel like you were in Paris with them.
