Meg, a young witch, is a servant to Princess Elizabeth at Woodstock during Mary Tudor's short, brutal, heretic-burning reign. Lamb pulls no punches about the danger both Meg and Elizabeth are in, especially during the horrifying burning of Meg's aunt, who is already sick with cancer. But there's a love interest, and many a teenage girl will fall for the dishy Alejandro de Castillo, of whom we'll hear more because this is the first in a series.I'm extremely pleased, as you can imagine. There are also some very good books discussed beside mine, so do check it out if you're into fiction for young adults.
And I'll be sharing the new cover for book two in the series, Witch Tower, very soon. Watch this space!
