Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Patricia Finney's outstanding literary thriller plunges into the vivid and deadly world of the 16th century: from the torture chambers of the Tower to the elegant artifice of court life; from the bawdy-houses of Southwark to the Queen's own bed. Why are the Jesuits, the Queen's Puritan councillors and even the Queen herself searching for the mysterious Book of the Unicorn? What ancient scandal threatens Elizabeth Tudor as she fights to avoid executing her cousin, Mary Queen of Scots? And what of the man waking up in the dungeon with no memory of who he is? David Becket and Simon Ames, the two mismatched heroes of FIREDRAKE'S EYE find themselves unwillingly in the thick of the struggle to unravel the plot.

From the Publisher:

Praise for Unicorn's Blood:

"Swiftly moving and deftly woven, this courtly tale is as engrossing as it is improbable--and thus all the more delightful." --The New York Times Book Review

"An accomplished historical thriller...Finney's fictional meditations on Elizabeth's iconic womanhood not only bring Elizabeth alive--they make England's greatest queen an object of sympathy and even identification." --Publishers Weekly

"In all, a roaring good tale, with a poetic sensibility and judicious sense of humanity at its core." --Kirkus Reviews

"A peerless period novel, Unicorn's Blood is worth a queen's ransom. To paraphrase the Bard: excellence, they name is Finney." --Orlando Sentinel

"Masterfully written and researched...a witty, brilliant, hot-blooded tale." --Portsmouth Herald

"Brilliant, original and wonderfully written." --Women's Review of Books
