Summary
If she sink, she be no witch and shall be drowned. If she float, she be a witch and must be hanged. Meg Lytton has always known she is different-that she bears a dark and powerful gift. But in 1554 England, in service at Woodstock Palace to the banished Tudor princess Elizabeth, it has never been more dangerous to practise witchcraft. Meg knows she must guard her secret carefully from the many suspicious eyes watching over the princess and her companions. One wrong move could mean her life, and the life of Elizabeth, rightful heir to the English throne. With witchfinder Marcus Dent determined to have Meg's hand in marriage, and Meg's own family conspiring against the English queen, there isn't a single person Meg can trust. Certainly not the enigmatic young Spanish priest Alejandro de Castillo, despite her undeniable feelings. But when all the world turns against her, Meg must open her heart to a dangerous choice. The Secret Circle meets The Other Boleyn Girl in Witchstruck, the first book of the magical Tudor Witch trilogy.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Two very different men want 15-year-old Meg Lytton to deny her growing power as a witch: Alejandro de Castillo, the handsome soon-to-be priest from Spain, and Marcus Dent, the malicious witch hunter whose desire for Meg outweighs his suspicions about her craft. While drawn to the former and running from the latter, Meg must also guard against becoming a pawn in her father and cousin's treasonous plans against Queen Mary. Yes, this is set in Tudor England while Princess Elizabeth (Meg's employer) is under house arrest on suspicion of treason against her half sister Queen Mary. The sexy stuff is limited to a few scenes of slightly ripped bodices, and the book is a bit predictable and stocked with character types common within the genre. That said, some teens will likely thrill to the darkly handsome priest whose order allows him to marry (foreshadowing?), and will appreciate Meg's continued attempts to save herself. Romance genre readers, at least, will be at home here.--Welch, Cindy Copyright 2010 Booklist"
