Triumff: Her Majesty's Hero
Triumff: Her Majesty’s Hero by Dan Abnett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sir Rupert Triumff dangles from the horns of a dilemma; on one hand is his Duty to Queen and Country, on the other a Moral Obligation to Protect a Secret which could lead to War with a Distant and Mysterious Country. Throw into the mix a sinister plot against the Crown which has framed Triumff as a Traitor. To uphold his Honor and Save the Empire from War and Ruin Sir Rupert duels with swords and wits, spies, romances, and generally Swashbuckles his way through the alleys and across the rooftops of London.

I’ve seen more than one comparison to Flashman and yes, Triumff is a Flashman-esque hero who manages to succeed in spite of himself. Funny, fun and four stars.
