THE STALKING HORSE by Rafael Sabatini


Email this review


Essentially a story teller, Sabatini gives the glamor of dramatic adventure and an appealing love story to the rather austere background of the plots and counterplots of the Jacobitos in England and France, during the end of the 17th century. Those who enjoy the romantic costume novels of historical settings will find this to their liking. It is Sabatini in the vein of THE BLACK SWAN, perhaps, rather than THE KING'S MINION, with the emphasis on one dramatic episode rather than a great swoop of canvas. A man's book more than a woman's, and should be a good circulating library item.
