This summer, Queen Elizabeth I is in no mood for games. She
and her court were expecting to spend the warmer months
lounging in great manor houses, feasting in the fields,
tempting forbidden romance, and perhaps engaging in sport.
But someone in the Queenâ€™s entourage isnâ€™t playing by the
rulesâ€¦and soon Elizabeth is dodging crossbows, longbows,
andâ€”worst of allâ€”the threats of her greatest rival, Mary
Queen of Scots. As bodies and clues pile up, the mystery and
dangers deepen like the surrounding forests. Now Elizabeth
must fearlessly confront her foes before she loses her
crownâ€”or her life.
