    more from this reviewer

    The two protagonists appeared in book 1, At the King's Command: Oliver de Lacey the seriously ill asthmatic 9-year-old hidden from King Henry and Lark Merrifield a one-sentence glimpse as a babe in the arms of her husband (!)

    Now 20 years later, Lark, a Samaritan, along with an accomplice rescue one "Oliver Lackey" from a hanging and bring him to Blackrose Priory at the wishes of her dying husband. Spencer Merrifield has plans to protect his lands and Lark from his estranged son Wynter, and needs Oliver's help to see that they are carried out. All the historical and fictional players are here: Queen Mary, the young Bess, Oliver Cromwell, the gypsies, Kit Youngblood, glimpses of Stephen de Lacey and Juliana and Oliver's remarkable step-siblings, as well as the religious struggles caused by Henry VIII. Yet, as vibrant as Oliver is, as brave Lark is, as evil as Wynter is, and as chockfull of tense situations the book contains, the tale is surprisingly flat.

    3.5 Stars - I liked the first book in the series better than this one. I was shocked that this was in the running for the RITA Award, it is good, but not as good as the first. I thought Lark was alittle on the bland side and I couldn't believe a Rogue as Oliver is, would fall for her so fast. There is alot of Catholic bashing in this book, but history is history, but thought it was an overkill. Alot of twists and the books need to be read in order to fully appreciate all the interactions of the characters. ljb
