Quotes & Awards

  • “This tale of high romance and intrigue…has aged well. Johanna Ward is fun to listen to. She puts the author’s rather melodramatic prose in the best possible light by reading with restraint, gravity and authority…it’s always clear who’s speaking and how he or she feels. Good production values top off the welcome reappearance of an old friend.”

    " I Will Repay is the first of many sequels to Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel, and is, likewise, set amidst the French Revolution. Though I did not think it was quite as good as the original book, I liked it all the same. I Will Repay centers around two new main characters, Juliette Marny and Paul Deroulede. Years before the Revolution, Juliette's brother was killed in a fair fight by Deroulede, and her deranged father had Juliette swear to avenge her brother's death. In the aftermath of certain events, Juliette is taken into Deroulede's household where she has an insight into the best way to denounce Deroulede and take revenge. But what transpires when one is pitted against the other? Romance and true love, of course! Juliette realizes, too late, that God alone will deal out punishment and it is not our decision who should get revenge. She also recognizes her love for Deroulede and must now try to undo what she has done. Next thing they know, both Juliette and Paul must find a way to escape France or it's to the guillotine for the both of them! Perhaps part of the reason I enjoyed The Scarlet Pimpernel more, was the fact that Sir Percy Blakeney was only a secondary character (Deroulede's friend) in this novel. Sir Percy does, however, give continued advise and must help them escape in the end. Betrayal (not only Juliette's!), suspense, rescue, danger, and true love are all wonderfully woven in this classic. I'm looking forward to reading more of Sir Percy's adventures in the future. "

    " A tad silly and melodramatic, but still a fun read. The romance wasn't as compelling as that in the first book, and the hero isn't as swoon-worthy as Sir Percy. However, this is more evenly paced than its predecessor: whereas The Scarlet Pimpernel took 8 chapters or so to hit its stride, I Will Repay was fun and engrossing from the first page. As others have noted, the conclusion of the book and the romance perhaps wasn't as satisfying as it could have been. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jana | 1/8/2014

    " After reading "The Scarlet Pimpernell," I thought I should read this, the next book in the series. However, I found the plot to be very predictable for the most part, especially after reading the first book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharol Sorensen | 12/26/2013

    " It was a bit melodramatic for me. Not quite the adventure of The Scarlet Pimpernel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 8/8/2013

    " While not as good as the original, a nice sequel. A lot of historical information on the French Revolution, and not as much of the Scarlet Pimpernel as I would have liked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 4/24/2013

    " This book isn't really about Percy or Marguerite, but it's good anyway. I felt so sorry for the main female charector! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 3/30/2013

    " Another great book from the Pimpernel series. Although this book doesn't focus as much on the Scarlet Pimpernel himself, it's still really good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Ridge | 3/12/2013

    " This is the 2nd Scarlet Pimpernel book that I've read. I found it to be a bit predictable but throughly enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 1/20/2013

    " Another scarlet pimpernel story. I thought it was great! Very clever and adventurous like The Scarlet Pimpernel. The main story doesn't revolve around Percy, but he is involved. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ioana | 12/6/2012

    " so far, extremely similar to the story of the first book, the scarlet pimpernel... i was expecting a different story line "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 10/27/2012

    " Enjoyed this book almost as much as Scarlet Pimpernel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dena | 10/22/2011

    " A very short read with hardly any Scarlet Pimpernel in it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 4/27/2011

    " A basically good plot, but too melodramatic. The romance is far too idealized. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 4/10/2011

    " A good sequel to The Scarlet Pimpernel. Well writen, but I can begin to see her pattern unfold. And I found parts of the love story....gaggingly obnoxiously lovey-dovey. Perhaps I just need more of a break. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Yelverton | 2/28/2010

    " Another great adventure from the Scarlet Pimpernel. The ending is a little weak, but it's still a great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz 'Tova' Weisblatt | 11/3/2009

    " Although far less Sir Percy than I'd like and even less Margot, I did enjoy this book. You get to see Percy's compassion for those who are like him, in both love and compassion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Breanne | 6/28/2008

    " This is every bit as lovely as the Scarlet Pimpernel. Sweeter perhaps yet not so wanderingly mushy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefanie | 5/18/2008

    " This one was a lot better than ElDorado. And, of course, nothing could be quite as good as The Scarlet Pimpernel. But this one was really very good. It read fast, and had a great Scarlet Pimpernel twist, which is why we read these books, right? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/21/2008

    " I liked this book, as I have liked the other books in the Scarlet Pimpernel series, but the plot was rather similar to the first book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tasha | 8/26/2007

    " If this wasn't a eBook, I would set fire to it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie | 6/3/2007

    " This was all right. It did not measure up to the wonderful first book, but I have high hopes for the next in the series. "
