Description

In this "lively and fast-paced debut" with "plenty of action and plot twists" (Kirkus Reviews), a secret society of young women make up Elizabeth I's most trusted royal guard. If God won't save the Queen...they will. Orphan Meg Fellowes makes her living picking pockets--until she steals from the wrong nobleman. Instead of rotting in prison like she expected, she's whisked away to the court of Queen Elizabeth and pressed into royal service, where she joins four other remarkable girls in the Maids of Honor, the Queen's secret society of protectors. Meg's natural abilities as a spy prove useful in this time of unrest. The Spanish Court is visiting, and with them come devious plots and hidden political motives. As threats to the kingdom begin to mount, Meg can't deny her growing attraction to one of the dashing Spanish courtiers. But it's hard to trust her heart in a place where royal formalities and masked balls hide the truth. Meg's mission tests every talent she possesses, even her loyalty to her fellow Maids. With danger lurking around every corner, can she stay alive--and protect the crown?

"Whether recounting her perilous missions or her moral dilemmas, Meg's first-person narrative is consistently engaging. Meg's adventure comes to a satisfying conclusion while leaving the door open for sequels."--Booklist
