Thomas's heroine Iris is an appealing young Protestant noblewoman whose parents, sympathetic to the princesses Mary and Elizabeth, are rounded up and murdered as part of the Duke of Northumberland John Dudley's plot to subvert Edward's throne. Pressed into service by Elizabeth's ally William Cecil, and hoping for revenge against Northumberland, Iris is trained in stealth and camouflage. There’s nothing like the mess Henry VIII left his children in to produce captivating historical fiction. Intrigue, politics, spies, princesses, noble and ignoble folk alike are all grist for the mill

I loved this fast-paced tale of a young girl in just-pre-Elizabethan England. From the moment this book starts, danger and intrigue follow Iris, daughter of a nobleman who is caught up in the power struggles to gain the throne of England. Reluctantly recruited to portray the Princess Elizabeth so the princess may remain safe, Iris is pulled into the court and finds the life distasteful. She wants to be at home with the people on her parents' estate, living life in the country, and instead she must risk her life for a young woman who is destined to be the Queen of England. Grounded in history, with plenty of action and humor and a touch of romance, this is a terrific choice for the tween girls in your life.

The world of pre-Elizabethan England is vivid and engaging in this tale of one girl caught up in life-and-death circumstances created by power struggles she'd known little of before. Though captive to the dire situation in which she finds herself, Iris's sense of agency keeps her from succumbing to the forces that would seek to destroy her or simply use her as a decoy. She is cunning, smart and appealing and I was compelled to keep turning the page, as I cared about her fate. A highly enjoyable way to learn more about England's somewhat confusing royal history.
