By Jill M. Heins on April 23, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Cythera's Brigade was a coterie of spies that attempted to detain aristocrats during the French Revolution. The Marquis d'Avoncourt went under the assumed name of M. Cambray in order to smuggle members of the Parisian nobility to freedom. When he was under the impression that he helped the Countess Themire's lost daughter Amelie to find her way home, the situation was actually a trap by the Brigade and he was imprisoned in Paris.

The Marquis' friend (Count Vavel de Versay) fled the country with the daughter of an aristocrat they were both protecting, and attempted anonymity as much as possible. They settled in the Nameless Castle, on the shores of Lake Neusiedl. However, the Brigade pursued him.

Jokai does a wonderful job capturing the ambiance of the revolutionary times.

SPOILER ALERT:
The aristocrat he was protecting was Marie Charlotte, Marie Antoinette's daughter, who only wanted to live openly and put her aristocratic heritage behind her. The book is beautifully written but like many of his historical works has a sad ending.

I enjoyed this book. You can see the parallel between the writters view of his country politically and what has happening during that time. This would have been a more enjoyable book to analyze and report on in High School Literature, than some of the other standard choices offered.
