The Lovereading4Kids comment
The vibrant spirit of the French Revolution propels this dramatic romantic thriller in which a young girl must flee to save her own life. Eugénie has always been protected from dangers by her wealth but now it is her wealth and position that puts her at risk. How Eugénie escapes the many dangers that surround her including the mob baying for revenge and, above all, the sinister pale assassin who haunts her is a thrillingly exciting story and an utterly unforgettable heroine.
The Pale Assassin - Pimpernelles 1 by Patricia Elliott
Eugenie de Boncoeur is growing up in Paris, unaware that her guardian has contracted her to marry the sinister spymaster known as 'le Fantome' when she turns sixteen. She finds herself falling for the handsome lawyer, Guy Deschamps, but there is little time for romance; France is descending into chaos as the Revolution takes hold. Soon Eugenie is fleeing for her life.
Her brother Armand has become involved in a plot to save the King from the guillotine, the mob is searching for aristocrats, and le Fantome, the pale assassin, is on their trail - desperate for revenge.
'Exciting and unpredictable ... you won't be able to put it down. History has never been so fun!'
