From Our Editors

Bernard Cornwell’s best-selling , literary historical adventures featuring the inimitable Richard Sharpe appeal to a broad range of readers. Both Tom Clancy and Patrick O’Brien’s fans can appreciate the action-packed plots and attention to detail in Cornwell’s popular series. Sharpe’s Devil: Richard Sharpe and the Emperor, 1820-1821 follows Sharpe as he and Patrick Harper journey to Chile to find an old friend who’s disappeared. Yet, the pair isn’t really on an innocent mission. Unbeknownst to them, the gift Napoleon Bonaparte urges them to take to South America turns out to cause more havoc than the boisterous Sharpe himself has ever experienced!
