Product Details


“Readers will be completely captivated by the mystery and history in this adventure, and be swept away by the thrilling suspense.”Booklist

“A fast-paced, well-researched, clever tale of loyalty, torture, and the power of persistence.”Kirkus Reviews

“This is well-researched historical fiction set inside a science fiction story. Hosie brings Henry’s court to life with the sights, smells, and sounds of Tudor England without wordy and overly long descriptions. The time period is in no way romanticized, and through vivid writing the reader is assaulted with the stink of open sewers, the uncertainty of serving a despotic king, and the hopelessness experienced by women of the era. The chapters are told from the alternating perspectives of Charles, Alexander, and Lady Margaret, a high-born woman serving the queen. . . . The story hits the ground running, leaving readers feeling like they have been thrown into the middle of the story, but it quickly resolves itself into a tale that grips you and does not let go.”—School Library Connection
