Spellbinding! Deft mixture of history and suspense. This may have been geared for a YA audience, but it kept me glued to the pages. It's a quick read. At first I couldn't figure out how they were going to make a series out of this, but it became clear at the end that there are a few threads in the storyline that can keep going. I will definitely be picking up the next one!
A thoroughly likeable young heroine (I was very impressed with Peggy, for her courage, and her ethics), and a behind-the-scenes glimpse at palace life in the 1700's make this a title that any lover of historical fiction will enjoy, no matter the age.
