9780142414880: The Red Necklace: A Story of the French Revolution

The story of a remarkable boy called Yann Margoza; Tetu the dwarf, his friend and mentor; Sido, unloved daughter of a foolish Marquis; and Count Kalliovski, Grand Master of a secret society, who has half the aristocracy in thrall to him, and wants Yann dead.

Yann is spirited away to London but three years later, when Paris is gripped by the bloody horrors of the Revolution, he returns, charged with two missions: to find out Kalliovski's darkest deeds and to save Sido from the guillotine.

With a tangle of secrets, a thread of magic and a touch of humour, the follies of the aristocracy and the sufferings of ordinary people are unfolded as their lives move relentlessly towards the tragic and horrific days of the Terror. THE RED NECKLACE is not only a tremendous adventure story but a vibrant and passionate picture of Paris in turmoil and of a large cast of memorable characters.

Read by Tom Hiddleston

Review:

Brilliantly rich and complex. [Reader] Tom Hiddleston brilliantly captures the ardour of youth. An enchanting story for anyone of 10 and upwards. (Amanda Craig OBSERVER)

Sally Gardner's follow-up to I, Coriander, aimed at 10 to 16-year-olds, is enthralling: a vividly detailed concoction of murder and romance, drama and intrigue, set against the backdrop of the French Revolution. The sense of rising panic on the Paris streets and in the salons suffuses a superb reading. (Carol Mansur THE TELEGRAPH)

Book Description:

A thrillingly exciting, action-packed novel about a boy destined to be a hero of the French Revolution. Abridged edition read by Tom Hiddleston.
