    With the surprises starting in the first five pages, The Maze proves itself as a page turner Johnston s Pichon is a remarkable character, serving in a powerful position in 18th Century Paris, but subject to amature and powerful wife, Marguerite Despite this, he repeatedly risks his status to spend time with the woman who he truly loves, or at least lusts after, Helene After their relationship is uncovered, Pichon and Helene flee to London, which Johnston brings to life by weaving incr With the surprises starting in the first five pages, The Maze proves itself as a page turner Johnston s Pichon is a remarkable character, serving in a powerful position in 18th Century Paris, but subject to amature and powerful wife, Marguerite Despite this, he repeatedly risks his status to spend time with the woman who he truly loves, or at least lusts after, Helene After their relationship is uncovered, Pichon and Helene flee to London, which Johnston brings to life by weaving incredible descriptions of the city at the time When they arrive, both of their lives change in ways that I, as the reader, never foresaw.I enjoyed every element of this novel, and after its completion I only found myself wishing that I knewabout Helene, Thomas lover, and had further insight into her decisions I would love to see another novel from Johnston that details her narrative, as she is a well developed, interesting character.Although this is technically the second book in a series, I found that I had no issue in reading it before it s prequel It would do well as a stand alone novel, but I look forward to reading Thomas A Secret Life, and the remainder of the books in the series as they are published This is definitely a worthwhile read, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction that is laced with romance

    Ambition, passion and betrayal I finished The Maze by AJB Johnston a few days ago, and it is definitely a winner The maze is the setting for the opening gambit gambol , as well as a description of Our Hero s life direction Although based on a historical figure, the author has made his Thomas Pichon a delightful combination of human character and frailty He has benefited from ambition and marrying well, but passion and betrayal take their toll While there is indeed passion, I must commend Ambition, passion and betrayal I finished The Maze by AJB Johnston a few days ago, and it is definitely a winner The maze is the setting for the opening gambit gambol , as well as a description of Our Hero s life direction Although based on a historical figure, the author has made his Thomas Pichon a delightful combination of human character and frailty He has benefited from ambition and marrying well, but passion and betrayal take their toll While there is indeed passion, I must commend the author for his restraint in its description nothing here that I would find embarrassing to recommend to my mother or teenage daughter.Personally, I enjoy good historical fiction muchthan non fiction history Historical fiction permits the reader to BE there in the era, while also enjoying the period detail of dress, furnishings, conveyances and location And, who is better to give you these details than a professional historian While The Maze is the second in a projected four book series, I enjoyed it without reading the previous book, Thomas A Secret Life but I just bought the first book and will be reading it very soon

    I won this book in a goodreads giveaway Historical fiction is my all time favorite genre so I was excited to read this Unfortunately, it fell short of my expectations It wasn t a bad book, but it just didn t really hold my attention The twists and turns decribed on the book jacket was really nothing but a self centered man having an affair.
