Publisher's Summary

Who needs a wedding ring when you can pick up a sword? A remarkable and utterly inventive novel from Sharon Cameron, author of The Dark Unwinding, which USA Today called "spellbindingly imaginative".
History has a way of repeating itself. In the Sunken City that was once Paris, all who oppose the new revolution are being put to the blade. Except for those who disappear from their prison cells, a red-tipped rook feather left in their place. Is the mysterious Red Rook a savior of the innocent or a criminal?
Meanwhile, across the sea in the Commonwealth, Sophia Bellamy's arranged marriage to the wealthy René Hasard is the last chance to save her family from ruin. But when the search for the Red Rook comes straight to her doorstep, Sophia discovers that her fiancé is not all he seems. Which is only fair, because neither is she.
As the Red Rook grows bolder and the stakes grow higher, Sophia and René find themselves locked in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse.
Daring intrigue, delicious romance, and spine-tingling suspense fill the audio of this extraordinary tale from award-winning author Sharon Cameron.

An Action Packed Story!!

I absolutely loved this story and how it was told. I also loved the Accent although it was hard to understand what was happening sometimes bit I repeated the story a few second and listened again. But otherwise I loved it.

Sharon Cameron writes a rollicking good story

This is the third Young Adult book of Cameron's I have listened to and they are all top notch! The atmosphere, driving narrative and clever use of the Scarlet Pimpernel myth are all very enjoyable. Caroline Feraday has a large range of voices, including very believable male accents.
