Shorter than "The Queen's Bastard", this work about Elizabeth's early teen years is nevertheless an important component of the trilogy. It is striking in its depiction of the way royal children were manipulated and betrayed by those who were supposed to be mentoring and caring for them. No wonder so many of them turned out rotten!
