All too often seuels are pushed out in a wretched manner of furthering both the author and publisher s ego in an effort to add to their pockets and prestige regardless of the story s relatedness to the original arc and its content Rabble in Arms is the direct opposite to this approach as it perfectly exceeds the original in its depth and appeal learning from a few minor flaws by replacing awkward and forced romantic drama with an abundance of historically accurate characters and battlesThe book begins in England following the conversation of the main character Peter Merrill and his brother Nathaniel as they try to find a seaward passage to their hometown of Arundel Roberts appropriately has them meet and become a party to the original characters of the first novel both good and evil alike including Cap Huff Steven Nason Benedict Arnold and several new characters that are brilliantly developed These engaging personalities help to provide a view of the war effort and its incompetent power hungry congressmen militia and officers that jealously handicapped worthy and capable commanders such as Arnold Philip Schuyler Daniel Morgan and Richard Varick Roberts has brilliantly focused less on the inhabitants of Arundel and the nostalgia surrounding the town and instead captures the battles at Valcour Island Bemis Heights Freeman s Farm in their minute by minute glory All the while he brings due respect and justice for the likes of both Schuyler and Arnold s efforts and achievements in the Revolution The world s full of nincompoops that want to pull all mankind down to their level They hate prominence on general principles Let them hear a man s name repeated than a dozen times and they hate him without knowing why They magnify his faults out of all recognition and if he hasn t any they invent em for him Easton and Brown hated me and so did Hazen but they started by being jealous of me General Schuyler s case can t be much different There s plenty of men sweating with jealousy of Schuyler s money and position who think he shouldn t have both and so they d like to snatch his position for themselves Therefore they circulate absurd stories about him Jealousy s a terrible power in the worldAs is appropriate for a profound work of historical fiction the reader will have a strong desire to look into the backgrounds of those pivotal men and battles already discussed especially the idolized and perhaps disgraceful figures interpreted such as Gates Wilkinson Arthur St Clair and Ethan Allen There is by far less flowery conversation and overly dramatic speeches then the previous work and as mentioned Roberts has created distinct characters and captured historic figures that are memorable through their relatability and understanding While there is indeed a sense of closure as the series proceeds on to the War of 1812 the reader no doubt will wonder about the potential Roberts might have had in using his magnificent talents for covering the further years of the war up until the final Surrender at Yorktown Read the Full Review and More The Nightingale knowing why They magnify his faults out of all recognition and if he hasn t any they invent em for him Easton and Brown hated me and so did Hazen but they started by being jealous of me General Schuyler s case can t be much different There s plenty of men sweating with jealousy of Schuyler s money and position who think he shouldn t have both and so they d like to snatch his position for themselves Therefore they circulate absurd stories about him Jealousy s a terrible power in the worldAs is appropriate for a profound work of historical fiction the reader will have a strong desire to look into the backgrounds of those pivotal men and battles already discussed especially the idolized and perhaps disgraceful figures interpreted such as Gates Wilkinson Arthur St Clair and Ethan Allen There is by far less flowery conversation and overly dramatic speeches then the previous work and as mentioned Roberts has created distinct characters and captured historic figures that are memorable through their relatability and understanding While there is indeed a sense of closure as the series proceeds on to the War of 1812 the reader no doubt will wonder about the potential Roberts might have had in using his magnificent talents for covering the further years of the war up until the final Surrender at Yorktown Read the Full Review and More
