Publisher's Summary

Long live the queen: The authors who brought you the New York Times best-selling My Lady Jane kick off an all-new historical trilogy with the classy, courtly tale of Mary, Queen of Scots.  

Welcome to Renaissance France, a place of poison and plots, of beauties and beasts, of mice and...queens?

Mary is the queen of Scotland and the jewel of the French court. Except when she’s a mouse. Yes, Mary is an Eðian (shape-shifter) in a kingdom where Verities rule. It’s a secret that could cost her a head - or a tail.  

Luckily, Mary has a confidant in her betrothed, Francis. But things at the gilded court take a treacherous turn after the king meets a suspicious end. Thrust onto the throne, Mary and Francis face a viper’s nest of conspiracies, traps, and treason. And if Mary’s secret is revealed, heads are bound to roll. 

With a royally clever sense of humor, Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows continue their campaign to turn history on its head in this YA fantasy that’s perfect for fans of A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.

Another Fun, Silly Ride

honestly, I came for a good time & this was the break from reality filled with foolishness that I need. I love a crazy book that doesn't take it self too seriously & Aria's "predictions " show that. and loved how the authors completely upended European History once again. this book and the others like are completely self-aware that they are not here for historical accuracy!

The Performance was Excellent…

The performance was excellent. I liked the story as well. I would have liked to see it extended to cover more of the history that we know of Mary Queen of Scott’s. Maybe fodder for a sequel…

So Enjoyable!

I read My Lady Jane and loved it! So, naturally, I was curious about the companion. Although I prefer the Jane's story, I cannot say enough about how wonderful the performance was for this book. Absolutely delightful! Perfectly read and acted, with various accents throughout that make it so immersive. Well Done!
