Riassunto: In this rousing historical adventure set in the Tudor court, we are swept back to the final days of King Edward VI’s reign, and a time of danger, intrigue, and bravery.
Brendan Prescott, a foundling reared in Dudley household, arrives at court to serve as a squire to the arrogant Lord Robert Dudley. Keen and ambitious, Brendan hopes to gain advancement in his new post - until Lord Robert dispatches him on an illicit mission to the King’s enigmatic sister, the Princess Elizabeth, and Brendan discovers that nothing in his world is as it appears.
A dark plot brews around Elizabeth's quest to unravel the truth about her brother's disappearance. Lured into her service as a spy, with only a bold stable boy and audacious lady-in-waiting at his side, Brendan plunges into a ruthless gambit of half-truths and lies, pitted against the wiles of a vengeful opponent who holds the secret of his own mysterious birth - a secret that could shatter everything he believes in, and cast an inescapable shadow over him, Elizabeth, and the future of England itself.
Dall'editore: Filled with the intrigue and pageantry of Tudor England, The Secret Lion is the first book in The Spymaster Chronicles.
