Terrific rip-roaring old fashioned adventure story, set in the 1918-35 period, replete with Russian spies, Nazis, French police, a secret island, and featuring a young man/boy whose background is unknown... ( )

I read this book because I received its sequel as an Early Reviewer, but I wanted to read this first. I'm glad I did and really enjoyed it although I'm not the targeted audience. It had action, adventure, mystery and romance and kept you turning pages. ( )

A good book made better by reading it in large sections; don't take your time with this. A dizzying amount of characters of varying importance, or at least written of in a time frame that can be a little hard to keep up with or keep straight. Many of mysteries uncovered in this book are not made clear until the sequel, so patience is required. A book well designed for mystery-philes and older YA readers. De Fombelle goes out of his way to make things abundantly clear to young readers that may be reading, or at least the translation does. ( )

This is not my favorite sort of novel to read but I do appreciate and admire de Fombelle's talent for creating a sprawling, intricately plotted story. This is an unusual, old-fashioned kind of grand adventure with a huge cast of characters and lots of locales. Readers who enjoy stories packed with adventure and suspense, including a little romance, will love this. ( )
