Editorial Reviews

“In modern times, Cat would most likely be a cheerleader; the king, captain of the football team. But the royal backdrop with historical underpinnings makes a far more interesting story…Readers can practically feel the embroidered ball gowns and hand-stitched lace.” –The Los Angeles Times"I believe I found my new favorite series"- MTV.com“Longshore, who's clearly done her historical homework, takes full advantage of the Tudor standards. . . and surroundings. . .  but Cat is a completely contemporary American teenager.”—BCCB “Longshore writes a believable novel of historical fiction with well-developed characters and entertaining . . . plot twists.”—VOYA “A good, juicy story . . . royally riveting for the reader.”—Booklist “A substantive, sobering historical read, with just a few heaving bodices.”—Kirkus Reviews
