Additional Comments (Please type or paste your review here) Cat Royal, heroine of Diamond of Drury Lane and Cat Among Pigeons, is at it again! Theater Royal is closed for extreame remodeling (as in tearing it down and rebuilding!!) and Mr. Sheridan has to make cast cuts. Suddenly, Cat is homeless. After a couple of disasters (after all, she is Cat Royal!) she meets back up with Mr. Sheridan. Turns out, he has a job for her! Only..that job is going undercover to Paris in the middle of the French Revolution! While trying to find out the feelings of the people, Cat meets a interesting cast of characters, including J-F, a king of thieves. Just when things are looking up for Cat, she finds out close friends of hers, the Avons, are imprisoned on a conspiracy charge! Can Cat keep her head in the midst of the revolution and save them? This book is by far the best in the series, and it left me waiting on the edge of my seat for Cat'O'Nine Tails, the next book! This book can be read by itself, even though Cat flashes back to past adventures. I would recommend this book to anyone for a read, but on it's own, it is not Teen Top Ten worthy, in my opinion. As a series, yes.
