Quick readInteresting, quick read I enjoyed the storyline and the characters Not a lot of depth An easy read for younger readers as well.
I think this book would be really great for 4th and 5th graders.
I m a huge fan of the Tudor era so I picked this book up with no small amount of trepidation While the author s research skills were on par with other books I d read, something felt off about Grace herself She seemed too able to get away with unladylike behavor and I find it hard to believe she and a fellow maid of honor would be able to go missing for a week or without getting caught by someone These books a full of historical detail and a brave heroine who younger girls will adore They just w [...]

I really thought these were sweet books A fun mystery and a lovable main character It is refreshing to read about a young girl that is not only compassionate but spunky and adventurous I will defiantly recommend this book my young readers
It was predictable There were many liberties taken with Queen Elizabeth that I just don t see as being real Book 2 was just as predictable and irritated me a bit because of the lack of reality while I know this is fiction, I just couldn t really like it It was a fast read.
These books were so much fun Lady Grace has adventures in the court of Queen Elizabeth The historical detail is just incredible as well.
Fun mysteries set in Queen Elizabeth I s court Not exactly realistic but still historically accurate And complete with glossary to explain, for example, what a quinsy is
Quick fun read.
3.5 Assassin 8 2010
This was a genuine good read I found myself plowing through it, fully immersed in Elizabethan England The MC, Lady Grace, is high spirited and makes each story humorous and enjoyable.
I loved how it gave an insight into history I love historical thrillers
A lot of blah times, but the climax was interesting
It was mysterious but good at the same time I liked how she set up the time like a long time ago NICE WORK
The stories were OK but I did not really connect with the protagonist.
This is a fun series Easy,quick and short with historical details, exciting mystery adventure and humor Great for middle school readers.
I d give this a 2 for me, but for a young reader, a 3 The story was too predictable and simple to really enjoy, and I doubt any of it could really happen in Tudor England.
