  • Purestone
I am eight and I love Lady Grace mysteries because they tell me about Tudor times and they have really exciting stories. And the characters are interesting; and Lady Grace has a very good sense of humour! Assassin is my favourite so far because it has lots of mystery and you don't know the truth until the end. I like the horse, Borrage, in Conspiracy; he's strange!
  • Cordantrius
I love this series of books. They are both entertaining and educational. I can highly recommend them to any age group and hope everyone loves them as much as i have. I have read Assassin-Loot...still am waiting for M-z to be written. The multiple authors have managed well to keep a consistent theme through the books..and the Lady Pursuivant, Lady Grace is a really likeable character. It is obvious the writers mostly are educated in medieval history. It's a shame these books aren't more widely known. Lady Grace is God Daughter to Elizabeth the 1st., and the books cover a period from 1569-1570. She is beloved by the Queen, and becomes her Lady Pursuivant, helping expose those who would trouble the Queen's peace or try to harm her. Grace's mother was Lady-in-waiting to the Queen, but was poisoned accidentally. Please read these books. They are worth every penny!

However, later that night, one of Grace's rejected suitors is found murdered and all the evidence points to her betrothed. Grace sets out to clear his name, digging out all kinds of secrets, plots, and intrigue in the royal court.

Betrayal
When Lady Sarah, one of Lady Grace's fellow Maids-of-Honor, is kidnapped, she secretly sets out in disguise to rescue her before her reputation is ruined. Grace stows away on a ship with her friend Masou, but when they are discovered by the ship's crew, they are put to work on the ship. Grace has to find and rescue Sarah without revealing her identity or it will be her reputation destroyed.
  • Runeterror
This is a charming, delightful mystery. It is a fun read and would particularly would appeal to young people.
A Maid of Honor in Queen Elizabeth's court has strict standards to live up to. Happily for Lady Grace Cavendish, she can take the Queen's dogs for a walk and meet her friends Ellie and Masou. Sometimes she even finds a mystery to solve.

Brisk pacing and engaging characters make these young adult novels a treat for readers of any age.
