This is the terrifying and nail-biting story of the de Quatreaux family and friends as they attempt to survive the violent political changes of the French Revolution-and the guillotine. The head of the family, Jean-Pierre, works hard to persuade the king to take action before the organizers of the revolt topple the throne. Prominent amongst these is Maximilien Robespierre, instigator of The Terror and guiding father of the Revolution. Lareaux, an old enemy from the past, seeking de Quatreaux' life, complicates matters, setting his revengeful sights on Jean-Pierre's daughter Angelique. Angelique, incensed by the injustices flowing around her, narrowly escapes mob riots, lynching and witchcraft accusations and suffers abduction by Lareaux. As Robespierre's Terror increases, Angelique's twin, Emile and his friend Raoul, lead a dangerous, secret life as counter-revolutionaries; assisting in the rescue and emigration of many innocent victims, including the failed royal family flight to Varennes.
