The Betrayal : Life as a spy for the Queen of England has its fair share of excitement, but Lucy is ready for thrills beyond playing a convincing servant in the house of Dr. Dee, court magician. When she hears that his household is moving to the centre of London, Lucy can hardly believe her luck - she'll be leaving and breathing the sparkling city life amidst the glamour of royalty. A blossoming romance with Tomas, the queen's fool, makes everything seem almost too perfect. But while Lucy's been discovering London, London's been discovering someone new, too: Mary, Queen of Scots. Rumours are beginning to spread about the growing support for Queen Elizabeth's rival, and where rumours are found, truth is never far behind. Lucy hasn't failed the queen yet, but now she must summon a different kind of strength and decide if her deepest loyalty is to the queen - or to herself.
