Description
Young and beautiful Violetta may be of royal blood, but her kingdom is in shambles when she arrives in London at the dawn of the 17th century on a mysterious mission, in this flight of fancy by the author of Witch Child, Sorceress, and Sovay, for readers 12 and up. Violetta and her comedic companion Feste have endured much in their search of a holy relic that the evil Malvolio has stolen from their kingdom—but her adventures are only beginning when she enlists the help of a hardworking playwright named William Shakespeare.

"Shakespearean-style complications ensue, driven both by the entrance of Violetta's cousin, lifelong love, and possible betrayer, Stephano, and also the revelation that Malvolio is involved in a Catholic plot to assassinate the Queen. Expertly livening the proceedings with intrigues, japes, kisses, mildly bawdy comments ("the young are apt to be betrayed by their hearts, and other parts"), colorful characters, plot twists, quick violence, and an occasional breath of the supernatural, Rees dishes up a quick-paced tale that builds to a suspenseful climax. Just the ticket for fans of Lisa Klein's Lady Macbeth's Daughter and the plethora of similar Shakespearean sallies."—Booklist
