"The book is full of pregnant and splendid sayings. There are scenes of inimitable workmanship.
Ninety-Three is equal to anything that Hugo has ever written."--Robert Louis Stevenson

It is 1793 in France, the year of the guillotine. Already, Louis XVI has been sentenced to the scaffold, and Terror
reigns. The architects of the Revolution--Marat, Danton, and Robespierre--have set up the Convention, an embryo
parliament, designed to stem social chaos. It is 1793: ideals topple in the face of political necessity, alliances
founder, intrigue is a way of life.

And in Ninety-Three, Victor Hugo's inspired last novel, that tumultuous year's events are woven into an epic
masterpiece which captures brilliantly the moment that shaped the destiny not only of France but of all European
monarchy.
