The Tudor Secret (The Elizabeth I Spymaster Chronicles)

The Tudor Secret (The Elizabeth I Spymaster Chronicles) - C.  W. Gortner I enjoyed [b:The Tudor Secret|8871844|The Tudor Secret (The Spymaster Chronicles, #1)|C.W. Gortner|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1402186791s/8871844.jpg|285073]. Brendon Prescott is "recruited" to be a spy for Princess Elizabeth. The twists the story took weren't wholly unexpected, but I was engaged trying to figure out everyone's loyalties. Makes you wonder just how hard it was to navigate court during that time.

Liked: The mystery. It was well done, complicated and with loose ends that make you want to read the next book.

Perigrine. One of my new favorite sidekicks. His antics and loyalty made me smile.

Dislikes: The love story. It felt a bit rushed. Not well developed.

I'd recommend the book. It is an easy read and I look forward to the next in the series.
