A child of two worlds—the son of an aristocratic Spanish military man turned landowner and a Shoshone warrior woman—young Diego de la Vega cannot silently bear the brutal injustices visited upon the helpless in late-eighteenth-century California. And so a great hero is born—skilled in athleticism and dazzling swordplay, his persona formed between the Old World and the New—the legend known as Zorro.

Isabel Allende is the author of twelve works of fiction, including theNew York TimesbestsellersMaya’s Notebook, Island Beneath the Sea, Inés of My Soul, Daughter of Fortune, and a novel that has become a world-renowned classic, The House of the Spirits. Born in Peru and raised in Chile, she lives in California.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delightfully Fun This may not be the best thing that Allende has ever written. However, it is a wonderful adventure. For someone who might find the Zorro concept a sort of hokey Robin Hood imitation, this novel kicks it up a notch. I often forgot while reading this that it was fiction as Allende made the whole story so real that I felt it must be historical. Zorro comes alive as an idealistic, slightly conceited boy who is hopelessly in love. He, along with his wiser friends manage to bring justice to many, all in an attractive black mask.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Putting a real life story to a comic character with splendid writing, Isabel has elegantly portrayed Zorro's life. Isabel infuses life into a role makes Zorro both human and super human.
