Meg Lytton has always known of her dark and powerful gift. Raised a student of the old magick by her Aunt Jane, casting the circle to see visions of the future and concocting spells from herbs and bones has always been as natural to Meg as breathing. But there has never been a more dangerous time to practise the craft, for it is 1554, and the sentence for any woman branded a witch is hanging, or burning at the stake.

Sent to the ruined, isolated palace of Woodstock to serve the disgraced Elizabeth, daughter of Henry VIII and half-sister of Queen Mary, Meg discovers her skills are of interest to the outcast princess, who is desperate to know if she will ever claim the throne. But Meg's existence becomes more dangerous every day, with the constant threat of exposure by the ruthless witchfinder Marcus Dent, and the arrival of a young Spanish priest, Alejandro de Castillo, to whom Meg is irresistibly drawn - despite their very different attitudes to her secret.



What I loved about this series so far...

Ok, so the first thing I absolutely loved about this series so far is the time that it is set, 1554.  When I think of Witch stories, the first impression that I get is that era of witches who have to hide who they are or they will get killed by some method, which makes the story that much more full of tension.  

Immediately from the beginning, I was sucked into this era and following Meg who we see practising magic even though if she was caught she would be tried and most definitely executed.  Absolutely loved the character of Meg, who was strong and willing to put herself in the front line. 

What I was not fond of about this series so far..

Absolutely nothing...

Summary...

An absolutely fantastic start to an amazing series.  I would recommend this book to all of you, even if you haven't tried a book about witches before - this would be a great place to start.  Also, if you like historical fiction, this would be a series I would recommend to you guys as well...
