When Sybella accompanies the Duchess to France, she expects trouble, but she isn't expecting a deadly trap. Surrounded by enemies both known and unknown, Sybella searches for the undercover assassins from the convent of St. Mortain who were placed in the French court years ago. Genevieve has been undercover for so many years, she no longer knows who she is or what she's supposed to be fighting for. When she discovers a hidden prisoner who may be of importance, she takes matters into her own hands. As these two worlds collide, the fate of the Duchess, Brittany, and everything Sybella and Genevieve have come to love hangs in the balance.

"The author pleases fans by returning to the His Fair Assassin series for a story narrated by Angela Goethals and Suzy Jackson. The first of a new duology is set at the end of the French-Breton War in the fifteenth century. Familiarity with the series will certainly aid listeners' understanding. In alternating chapters, Goethals narrates the story of Sybella, who is dedicated to protecting her young sisters and the new queen. Jackson expresses the viewpoint of Genevieve, who releases a dangerous prisoner from an oubliette and finds herself in the middle of political and personal power struggles. The narrators' voices, while not strongly distinctive, both convey the heroines' wonderful mix of courage and strength, doubts and fears amid opposing dark forces. Romance, drama, intrigue, and the weaving of historical details make this a gripping listen. S.W. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
