Violetta and Feste have come to London to rescue the holy relics taken from the church in Illyria by the evil Malvolio. Their journey has been long and their adventures many, but it is not until they meet the playwright William Shakespeare that they get to tell the entire story from beginning to end!

But where will this remarkable tale ultimately lead Violetta and her companion? And will they manage to save themselves, and the relics from the very evil intentions of Malvolio.

Review quote

`The lushly romantic story is very involving and always enjoyable, and it's packed with wonderfully evocative details' * Guardian * `Ambitious, clever and compelling . . . Rees's imagination makes her gloriously unpredictable' * The Times * `A sophisticated, compelling novel about creativity, sexual ambiguity and cunning. It should be required reading for readers of 13+ studying the play' * The Times * `A sparkling, intelligent, well textured novel for younger teenagers of both sexes' * Literary Review *
