    1. Full name Emma Emmuska Magdolna Roz lia M ria Jozefa Borb la Orczy de Orczi was a Hungarian British novelist, best remembered as the author of THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL 1905 Baroness Orczy s sequels to the novel were less successful She was also an artist, and her works were exhibited at the Royal Academy, London Her first venture into fiction was with crime stories Among her most popular characters was The Old Man in the Corner, who was featured in a series of twelve British movies from 1924, starring Rolf Leslie.Baroness Emmuska Orczy was born in Tarna rs, Hungary, as the only daughter of Baron Felix Orczy, a noted composer and conductor, and his wife Emma Her father was a friend of such composers as Wagner, Liszt, and Gounod Orczy moved with her parents from Budapest to Brussels and then to London, learning to speak English at the age of fifteen She was educated in convent schools in Brussels and Paris In London she studied at the West London School of Art Orczy married in 1894 Montague Barstow, whom she had met while studying at the Heatherby School of Art Together they started to produce book and magazine illustrations and published an edition of Hungarian folktales.Orczy s first detective stories appeared in magazines As a writer she became famous in 1903 with the stage version of the Scarlet Pimpernel.

    2. It's a good story but the idea of Chauvelin raising such an innocent sweet daughter while he's off murdering and scheming across the French countryside seems rather improbable. But then again, I guess everything about the Scarlet Pimpernel books is improbable. They're just pure escapism.

    3. My reaction to Sir Percy Hits Back.I wish I could rewrite it. Maybe I'll do that as a school project, it'd be kind of fun. Now, why what would I change? Well, it's a bit ranty. She spends such a long time going on about what's going on and describing what people are thinking and the climaxes are all weird and there seem to be things that are just plain contradictory.How can someone be at the same time "calm" and "terrified" in the same moment? The emotions she sets, I can't quite flow with them. [...]

    4. Sir Percy Hits Back is one of many sequels to The Scarlet Pimpernel. It spends most of its time examining an unknown side of the series' villain, Chauvelin. Usually portrayed as a calculating, cold-hearted executioner, the character's softer side is shown as the reader discovers he is a father. It was an excellent example of how to make a character--even a villainous one--sympathetic to the reader. In the other books, Orczy habitually describes Chauvelin's hands as talon-like and sinister. Howev [...]

    5. An excellant adventure of another mission that the Scarlet Pimpernel takes to save the innocent, and in this instance, some familiar faces are in need of saving! Though this was quite an injoyable read, I didn't find it to be quite as reviting as some of Orczy's other books in her Scarlet Pimpernel series. I would suggest reading Orczy's more exhilerating books first such as, El Dorado, The Elusive Pimpernel, and of course, The Scarlet Pimpernel, before starting with this book. Though with all o [...]

    6. So this book was good in that the story is mostly told from the enemy's point of view and Chavlin has been put in a tight position But I still like The First Sir Percy, The Scarlet Pimpernel, El Dorado, and The Elusive Pimpernel the best. Two more to Go!

    7. It's a real shame the blurb for this book gives away the story. Fortunately, I hadn't read any blurb so had to guess what was coming. That aspect of the story made it really delightful, especially given how it played out. This is probably one of my favourite Pimpernel novels.

    8. Warning: a little bit of language and perhaps more "romance" than parents might want. I plan to read this again and create a Clean Guide. Check back again or message me to request this be bumped to the top of the list!
