    " great author who interweaves history into a story that is easily followed and hard to put down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich Ware | 2/9/2014

    " I love most of Cornwell's books. I enjoyed this, but less so than some in this series. "

    " Sharpe, despondent at the lost of Lady Grace and bitter with his lack of acceptance in the rifles, plans to leave the army. Since he came from the ranks, he can't sell his commission as he thought he could and he's near penniless. Combining revenge with robbery, he goes to the workhouse where he spend his youth and robs and kills the Master there. Hiding in a tavern, he's seen by Major General Baird who was looking for him to take on an assignment. This leads Sharpe into the world of intrigue and spies and also into Denmark where he takes part in the siege of Copenhagen. There's treachery in this world and it's one Sharpe isn't comfortable being in. Bernard Cornwell's depiction of the siege remind me of the bombing of Dresden. Sharpe's enemies this time aren't as heinous as Sgt. Hakeswill, but there's enough to want to see them beaten. "

    " Filling in the gaps is fun, but this is stretching things a bit too far! Placing Sharpe in this historical setting was a bit too manufactured for me. Although I enjoyed seeing Sharpe away from the action in England at the start of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 arriki | 1/18/2014

    " What can I say? Another wonderful journey back to Napoleonic times with Bernard Cornwell in his guise as Richard Sharpe. I learned a lot more about the beginnings of the Napoleonic Wars. Didn't realize how Britain had invaded Denmark to keep the Danish war ships falling into the hands of the French. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lois | 1/5/2014

    " OK, I'm pretty compulsive about this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 12/21/2013

    " Interesting book about a historical event I knew nothing about. Onto the last Sharpe novel for a while. Who knew Britain attacked Denmark?? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeffrey Cavanaugh | 12/8/2013

    " A rather mediocre installment in Cornwell's 'Sharpe' series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Coy | 9/30/2013

    " He really doesn't have to find a new girl every single book for me to be entertained. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 9/29/2013

    " Always fun, you can always cound of Sharpe and Cornwall for a ripping good yarn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Weatherston | 9/29/2013

    " This seems to have been almost written by a different author. Sharpe seems soft, expresses more emotions, and is different from the hard, calloused man we read about in the first books. The story was still OK, though, and moved along well. Overall, this receives an OK from me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith | 7/3/2013

    " One of the better Sharpe books "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 11/24/2012

    " Was great to read this adventure while on my way to Scandinavia. It also incorporates the previous book into the current plot nicely while detracting enough from what I though quite a dull previous book to produce something a lot more similar to the books based in India. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phair | 11/22/2012

    " Even the battles were fairly interesting and I love the way Sharpe suffers so uncomplainingly. I don't care how often Cornwell describes Sharpe's black hair- I still 'see' Sean Bean! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/19/2012

    " didn't read this and don't know how it got on my booklist, but I couldn't remove it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stuart | 9/8/2012

    " Another excellent read. Britain does not come out well in this attack on neutral Denmark in 1807 - indeed it is an episode largely ignored by British historians. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacy Bender | 9/4/2012

    " Bernard Cornwell brings a good story & History together wonderfully. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ingrid Hansen | 8/3/2011

    " Fantastic read, Sharpe is sooo cool and I just love the books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jansen Wee | 3/10/2011

    " Another fantastic read, with Sharpe going on cover ops in Denmark in 1807, in the British effort to prevent the not insignificant Danish fleet from falling into French hands. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Larry E | 2/3/2011

    " Good novel. Fast moving. Sharpe is a bad ass soldier. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janice | 1/4/2011

    " I am absolutely delighted with the character's and fine weave of historical fact and fiction in the Sharpe's books that I have read so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Coy | 12/29/2010

    " He really doesn't have to find a new girl every single book for me to be entertained. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leons1701 | 9/17/2010

    " Not my favorite Sharpe book, possibly because the British expedition to Copenhagen was such an obvious bit of idiotic international thuggery. Not Britain's finest hour by any means. And in character with that, Sharpe seems even more of a brutal thug than usual himself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 7/23/2010

    " I don't know if I'm buying Cornwell's utopic view of 19th century Denmark. The Danish books that I've read don't paint in such a positive light. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 6/30/2009

    " Always fun, you can always cound of Sharpe and Cornwall for a ripping good yarn. "
