Should there not then be an end? So said I to my friend the Constable of Zenda, as we talked by the bedside of Marshal Strakencz

In fine, the Count of Hentzau, shrewdly discerning the feeling that existed between the queen and Rudolf Rassendyll, set his spies to work, and was rewarded by discovering the object of my yearly meetings with Mr. Rassendyll. At least he conjectured the nature of my errand; this was enough for him.

The frame implies that the events related in both books took place in the late 1870s and early 1880s. This story commences three years after the conclusion of Zenda, and deals with the same fictional country somewhere in Germanic Middle Europe, the kingdom of Ruritania

Anthony Hope Hawkins, better known as Anthony Hope was an English novelist and playwright. He is remembered best for two books, considered classics of English literature, included in this volume: The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) and its sequel Rupert of Hentzau (1898). These works are set in the contemporaneous fictional country of Ruritania and spawned the genre known as Ruritanian romance. Zenda has inspired many adaptations, including a 1937 Hollywood movie.

Rudolf Rassendyll, having heroically saved the kingdom of Ruritania and nobly given up the hand of the beautiful Princess Flavia, has returned to his normal life in England. But when, three years later, Flavia, now the unhappily married Queen of Ruritania, sends him a love letter, it is stolen by the exiled villain Rupert Hentzau. Rudolf’s former adversary has been waiting for the chance to have his revenge, and this provides the perfect opportunity to stir up trouble. Rudolf must return to the troubled kingdom to defeat Hentzau, where he is embroiled once more in a world of deception, intrigue, deadly swordfights and torn loyalties. With the stakes higher than ever, will he pay the ultimate price?

I had read "The Heart of Princess Osra" and "The Prisoner of Zenda" before reading this one, and I was glad to have done it, as it gave me the feel for Hope's style and characterization. One really needs to have read "The Prisoner of Zenda" first in order to get the background of this book.
It is a fun read, reminiscent of the Three Musketeers and other action loaded works with a romantic flair. All--in-all, a good read.

A cousin of "The Prisoner of Zenda" and a delight! Style of the time - first person adventure, fun read, and exciting. Definitely worth a read along with Prisoner!

I wish all high school students had a chance to explore the wonders of a great tale of friendship,love and patriots.
I will tell fellow readers of this second book, I didn't know existed.

This is a sequel to "The Prisoner of Zenda," to which I gave 5 stars. This one is almost as good and fleshes out the character of a "noble villain." A good read if you're young or remained young.

Fascinating follow on to the Prisoner of Zenda

Loved Zenda. Let Down by Rupert. There is no honor in putting your friends at risk to preserve YOUR honor. That is Pride, one of the deadly sins, although the most respectable of the seven. I can see why Rupert of Hentzau does not get the same attention as Prisoner of Zenda.

Excellent book and delightful condition. Hope tells a simple enough story with many unexpected twists along the way. Definitely a fun read!
A good sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda
