Cossacks In Paris Paperback – May 12, 2013
|New from||Used from|
"[T]he plot structure feels like a series of chess moves.
During the succession of battles and chess moves leading up to the synchronized climax of a fight over a woman intersecting with a war for that era's center of civilization -- Paris -- a question seems to continually beat at the back of the reader's mind: Will a man's passionate pursuit of a woman prove more powerful than a ruler's quest for an empire?
Perren's economical style keeps the pages turning and the reader craving a resolution"
[Michael Moeller, The Atlasphere] --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
From the Author
My writing 'motto' is the same as that of my publisher, ClioStory Publishing: "Stories the way they used to be."
I strive to write straightforward prose that offers the reader an engrossing story that will hold them every page to the end. I offer characters that reflect values from times past - or perhaps the future: integrity, heroic achievements, and an unflagging sense of right and wrong. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

While I am not an expert or even an aficionado of early 19th century Europe, I have found almost no anachronisms or factually innacurate information in "Cossaks in Paris". The author has definitely done his research. As an added bonus "Cossaks in Paris" is a good story.
Veering between adventure, romance, and revenge, the story revolves around a young Finnish woman who is a pawn in Imperial Russian politics and an opinionated, driven French military engineer. There are many twists and turns, though none are confusing -- Jeff Perren obviously has the ability to keep his plot lines consistent without contradictions and deux ex machina.
If you like historical fiction , or even if you do not, Cossaks is a fine novel. I heartily recommend this work. In fact, the only reason that I did not give it five stars is out of a foolish desire to make five star works "extraordinarily special". I only infrequently post recommendations, which this is since it is hardly a review, and do not wish to give five. Stars to everything -- if I give everything 5 out of 5 then all of the reviews are equally worthless.
