A fantastic classic and a must for all lovers of Charles Dickens and Alexandre Dumas.  Set during the French revolution; a secret agent, the elusive Scarlet Pimpernel, is smuggling French aristocrats into England.  Renowned for his bravery and clever diguises, he remains a mystery to his sworn enemy (agent Chauvelin), and to his devoted admirer (Marguerite Blackeney).

Short Review: Night World Bind Up Vol. 1

Night World Bind Up

Author: L.J. Smith
Pages: 608

Three stories of vampires, werewolves and witches.  Good guess, the night world is a secret club of all the above.  Though all three stories are very different the stories centre on the same characters’ connections and ‘family’.  It’s nothing special, but defiantly better than Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight.
