“After ‘The House of Mirth’ a New York society novel has to be very good not to suffer fearfully by comparison.  ‘The Fighting Chance’ is very good and it does not suffer.”—­Cleveland Plain Dealer.

“There is no more adorable person in recent fiction than Sylvia Landis.”—­New York Evening Sun.

“Drawn with a master hand.”—­Toledo Blade.

“An absorbing tale which claims the reader’s interest to the end.”—­Detroit Free Press.

“Mr. Chambers has written many brilliant stories, but this is his masterpiece.”—­Pittsburg Chronicle Telegraph.

A GREAT ROMANTIC NOVEL.

The Reckoning.

By ROBERT W. CHAMBERS.  Illustrated by Henry Hutt. $1.50.

“A thrilling and engrossing tale.”—­New York Sun.

“When we say that the new work is as good as ‘Cardigan’ it is hardly necessary to say more.”—­The Dial.

“Robert Chambers’ books recommend themselves.  ‘The Reckoning’ is one of his best and will delight lovers of good novels.”—­Boston Herald.

“It is an exceedingly fine specimen of its class, worthy of its predecessors and a joy to all who like plenty of swing and spirit.”—­London Bookman.

“Robert W. Chambers’ stories of the revolutionary period in particular show a care in historic detail that put them in a different class from the rank and file of colonial novels.”—­Book News.

“A stirring tale well told and absorbing.  It is not a book to forget easily and it will for many throw new light on a phase of revolutionary history replete with interest and appeal.”—­Chicago Record-Herald.

“Chambers’ bullets whistle almost audibly in the pages; when a twig snaps, as twigs do perforce in these chronicles, you can almost feel the presence of the savage buck who snaps it.  Then there are situations of force and effect everywhere through the pages, an intensity of action, a certain naturalness of dialogue and ‘human nature’ in the incidents.  But over all is the glamor of the Chambers fancy, the gauzy woof of an artist’s imagination which glories in tints, in poesies, in the little whims of the brush and pencil, so that you have just a pleasant reminder of unreality and a glimpse of the author himself here and there to vary the interest.”—­St. Louis Republic.
