Sabatini is one of my favorite authors. Years ago, the first book of his I read was The Sea-Hawk and since then I've added to my collection whenever I could. I must have around two dozen of his books now and I enjoyed every one of them. I can't recommend him highly enough. I don't quite understand why he isn't much more popular. On the other hand, I sort of feel like I've been let in on a really, really good secret!

This is one of my favorite Sabatini novels. How can you go wrong with a story about a wager to win the heart of a fair young maiden within three months? Add in some treachery, rebellion, swordfighting, jealousy, and deceit, and you have all the makings of a fun and fast-moving book. ( )
