Product description

Review

Dumas's trademark gifts at crafting engaging historical romances are amply in evidence in this lengthy yet fast-paced volume. Ellsworth's translation captures a complete narrative. A very entertaining epic.

There is swash and buckle aplenty, and even plumage if that's what does it for you. And it is great fun.

The Red Sphinx is wonderful. There's plot and counter-plot, duels, passion, murder, romance, disguises, poets and assassins. Readable and compelling.

The Red Sphinx sparkles and shines in a new translation. Races along with pointed humor and broad quips. Fun permeates this big book. The rest of 2017's fiction will have to look sharp: An old master has just set the bar very, very high.

The Red Sphinx is a vivid and beautifully-crafted story dense with colorful characters and an irresistible charm.--Tony Cliff, author of the 'New York Times' bestselling "Delilah Dirk" graphic novels

Lawrence Ellsworth is the pen name of Lawrence Schick. He began his career as a writer at TSR Hobbies, where he was instrumental in the early popularity of the role-playing game "Dungeons & Dragons."
