After spending a career fighting the french, sharpe actually is in france. And the action is quite unexpected. Unexpected, and enjoyable! This is one of my favorites in the series.

Cornwell definitely slipped with this book. He dropped from his usual standard and became a bit sloppy. I have read his entire series and think the books to be great but this was probably one of the most clouded of his gems. I think that all of his books are in sort of the same mold. An affair with a different woman, i.e. Clare Wall, Josefina, Teresa, La Marquesa, Mary, Grace, Astrid and more, sometimes an equal officer i.e. Vicente and Donaju and a murderous opponent i.e. Loup, Christopher and Leroux, but this one was so muddled. First of all I believe that he should have either duelled with Jane's new lover or killed Jane for her adultery. It goes against the portrayal of Sharpe that I have ascertained from all his books and it seemed as if he decided to glue this book together. It was not seamless and seemed to be a bit muddy. A good read but this is not the first book to read to get the entire ideals represented by Richard Sharpe in his series. I also think that it was not wise of Cornwell in estranging Frederickson.

This story is a truly great book that tells another wonderfully described adventure of one of literary's greatest heroes: Major Sharpe. The battle of Toulouse occurs in this book, and believe me, if you're the type of reader that enjoys highly detailed battle scenes that leave you breathless and amazed, you would enjoy this book. Before I stumbled across the Sharpe series, I was not a fan of historical fiction. This novel, however, is so great! Even if you're not into historical fiction, this would still be entertaining for you. The characters are realistic, the battle scenes are rousing, the twists and turns are flawless and painted beautifully. Magnificent, a purely great adventure read full of hours upon hours of entertainment, depending on how fast you read. I finished this novel within three days, and this is the first book of Sharpe that I've ever read! I plan on reading every last one of Cornwell's Sharpe series!
