This is the sequel to 'The Prisoner of Zenda'. Five years have passed. The King has become jealous of Rudolf Rassendyll and suspicious of the queen (Flavia)'s feelings towards him. Flavia decides that this must be the last year in which she sends to Rudolf the single red rose that betokens her love, and therefore she also sends via Fritz von Tarlenheim, her letter of good-bye.

Count Rupert of Hentzau, banished from Ruritania after the incidents of the earlier book, is plotting his return. In furtherance of his scheme he obtains both letter and rose, and plots to place them before the King. Rudolf, Fritz and Sapt must prevent this at all costs... (Summary by Andy) (8 hr 45 min)

A sequel to "The Prisoner of Zenda"


(5 stars)

This is the sequel to “The Prisoner of Zenda” told by Fritz von Tarlenheim who ably assisted the hero, Rudolph Rassendyll, in this stirring adventure. He tells of the re-emergence of the evil Rupert von Hentzau and his new plot to overthrow the King of Ruritania, the recall of Rudolph to the Ruritanian cause, and of Rudolph’s love for the beautiful Queen Flavia in a swashbuckling tale that is at least as exciting as the earlier book. A very nice reading. Highly recommended. Thank you Mr Minter.

Not as much "fun" but more "exciting"


(5 stars)

This sequel might not be as "fun" as the first story, but I found it more suspenseful and exciting. The second coming of Rassendyll is fraught with more danger and daring than the first. "For the honour of the queen!" As well read as the first, although in the final few chapters I did get startled by a few plosives.

Terrific Adventure Romance


(5 stars)

I love this as a stand alone Book, and as the furthering of the "Prisoner of Zenda" story. Broke my heart, over our Hero, whom I came 2 adore. and as always, Andy Minter, the LibriVox Volunteer, does an amazing job for us...

Another Gem by Andy Minter

I had never heard of this author, or book, and listened simply because I'm a fan of Andy Minter. What a fun story! Love, intrigue, duels and treachery. Yes, thank you Mr. Minter.

Phenomenal story and remarkable reading.
