Probably you have already read The Scarlet Pimpernel and so do not need to be told that these are tales of an intrepid band of English gentlemen in the midst of the French Revolution. Led by the daring and elusive Pimpernel, they spend their leisure time in outwitting the Committee of Public Safety and rescuing aristocrats condemned to the guillotine.

League of the Scarlet Pimpernel follows Baroness Orczy's original novel The Scarlet Pimpernel with further tales of Sir Percy Blakeney, a daring Englishman set on rescuing French aristocrats from fate of the guillotine. The short novel is told in a vignette style with each chapter telling of a different encounter of the master of disguise and his fellowship.Overall, I preferred the more cohesive tale told in the first book of the series, but the lighthearted adventure and the lovable characters still produce a fun and engaging book.

Again, short stories do not seem to be Baroness Orczy's forte. She goes too quickly for her favorite and most frequently used plot devices, and doesn't have time to build them into anything unique. She also probably should have stayed away from the first person: I'm not one of those people who has something against first person in theory, but when your first person narrator's voices sound exactly like your third person narration, you probably shouldn't do it. There are a few longer pieces in this book, which are the best of them.

It would have been better if I didn't already know who the scarlet pimpernel was.
