-- My Thoughts --
Meg and Lady Elizabeth are in the Queen's court now. But they are not out of trouble. Dangerous and dark forces are lurking around every corner and no place is safe. Neither is Meg's love for Alejandro De Castillo, the young priest-to-be. Because Meg's oldest enemies are not about to let her get away -alive.
I am still a huge fan of the setting in this series. The whole historical acknowledgements from the time of Queen Mary's reign are precise and they sure needed a lot of research. I admire the author for her hard work and for choosing such a perfect time setting. Then, there's the reference to witchcraft. I was disappointed by the previous book because it didn't show a lot of details of the craft, but this one was much better.
Then, there's the romance. I didn't like the romance, at first, and I found it unbelievable. But it grew on me, and the author has managed to make there love as forbidden and as beautiful as it can be. I am still not a huge fan of Meg and her decisions, but I am okay with her. The other characters interest me more, specially the stunning and powerful Lady Elizabeth. She is a strong female character. This book is full of them.
Although this book dragged a bit at times, it was still very enjoyable. And I am happy that I was able to continue with this series. The ending was fabulous but you know that there is much more potential for this series. I cannot wait to see what the author has in store for her characters.
