    1 thought on “The Last Legionnaire”

    1. I’ve been a fan of the Jack Lark books since I first picked up ‘The Scalet Thief’. Paul Fraser Collard has created a character and an overall story that was fresh, new and exciting, and while it looked like it might be a ‘one hit wonder’, he has consistently proved otherwise. I have heard Jack Lark being described as ‘like Sharpe’. To some extent that’s true, but we’re just about at the point now where I would say Sharpe is like Jack Lark, for he is a far more vivid, exciting a [...]

    2. Jack Lark is now proving he is much more than a one trick pony. He hasn't really ever, just impersonated a soldier, his ability has shone through whichever conflict he has found himself, but that ability has, because of his impersonations, been appropriated by the character he has 'hidden' in. He is a soldier, through and through and in Legionnaire, he perhaps comes to realise that is the truth, no matter how hard he tries to think, and make others believe, differently. He can escape the life ar [...]

    3. Jack Lark is back! And this time he must survive the stews of Victorian London and the bloody battlefields of north Italy.

    4. Stepping into the east end of London Jack once called home. He finds the place has changed from what he once knew. But things have a habit of staying the same. Here in 19th century London Jack hopes to find maybe a home or at least some kind of refuge. So he returns to his childhood home, his Mother's Gin Palace. Does he find peace there? Of course not as with the other volumes in the series as soon as our hero looks like finding some kind of peace and quiet things go sideways to say the very le [...]

    5. Jack Lark's new adventure leads him into the Franco-Austrian War of 1859, but not as a volunteer but than forces by his 'friend' Major Ballard and his willing accomplice the shady Mister Palmer from Lark's third adventure 'The Devil's Assassin'. Why does Jack find himself in the latest mess? Returning to London to see his mother and his old love Mary Jack gets involved with a mobster who is running a protection racket on Ma Lark's gin palace. Well you know Jack will fight, running into Major Bal [...]

    6. I got a review copy of this book via Net Galley.The latest instalment of the Jack Lark series doesn't disappoint. Action and intrigue throughout the story. It would be hard not to compare these books to the Sharpe series given the similar tones and themes but where I find the Sharpe novels can be a little heavy in plotting these novels are light and fun to read. I'd been a fan of these novels since the first one I read (second in the series) and had actively searched out the other novels and sho [...]

    7. ReviewPaul Collard’s Jack Lark series has joined a celebrated few that are on my “drop what ever you are reading and read his new book now” list. Which is exactly what i did when i got my hands on The Last Legionnaire.The books have always had comparisons to Bernard Cornwell’s iconic character Sharpe, and with good reason, both are the same character from the gutter making their way in an officers world, only their routes there differ, Sharpe by battering his way to the top, Jack Lark th [...]

    9. Ahh, home sweet home. Jack is back in London; back with his mother; back to Mary.

The part of London Jack inhabits has it’s own problems, ones that Jack cannot overcome; ones that drive Jack back to The Devil. If you have followed along with Jack Lark, you know that there is one thing that he is good at, killing. In The Last Legionnaire, Jack finds himself in another war, ost [...]

    10. Jack Lark gets better with every adventure he has.

It's hard not to read a Jack Lark novel without thinking of Richard Sharpe.Indeed, I'm not the only one to think so rmenionbooks.wordpress/The latest in Paul Fraser Collard's Jack Lark series, this sees Lark return home - under his own name - back to the London Rookeries where he grew up.
