Palace Of Spies, Book 1

ebook

Introducing Peggy Fitzroy, royal snoop. "A rollicking spy caper in corsets . . . will delight fans of historical fiction as well as mystery lovers."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

A warning to all young ladies of delicate breeding who wish to embark upon lives of adventure: Don't.

Sixteen-year-old Peggy is a well-bred orphan who is coerced into posing as a lady in waiting at the palace of King George I. Life is grand, until Peggy starts to suspect that the girl she's impersonating might have been murdered. Unless Peggy can discover the truth, she might be doomed to the same terrible fate. But in a court of shadows and intrigue, anyone could be a spy—perhaps even the handsome young artist with whom Peggy is falling in love . . .

"The perfect balance of history and mystery, this novel is fantastic . . . Sarah Zettel is an author to watch, and readers will be eagerly awaiting the next Palace of Spies installment."—VOYA

"Zettel has created a dynamic, immensely likable heroine in Peggy, and she folds in history, both cultural and political . . . A sequel is in the works, and it will be eagerly anticipated by fans of Libba Bray."—Booklist

"A solid opening volley in a promising series."—Publishers Weekly

"The protagonist, clever and witty, makes a compelling heroine."—School Library Journal

"This combination of willful heroine and royal backdrop will appeal to history buffs and readers who like their subterfuge accessorized by a few frills and ruffles."—Bulletin
