Unicorn's Blood

Unicorn's Blood

Patricia Finney

By the writer of Firedrake's Eye: a masterpiece of voice, historic element, and mental perception to rival Peter Ackroyd and A. S. Byatt

England within the mid-1580s confronted an array of overseas foes and was once torn internally via non secular strife. At its middle was once a moderate girl of remarkable highbrow brilliance. Her stature approached that of a deity -- Queen Elizabeth I, the Virgin Queen. yet this icon used to be greater than a mirrored image of the Queen's own aura, it used to be a political production, designed to carry a fractious humans together.

Unicorn's Blood is ready a deadly mystery, the lifestyles of a personal diary stored through the Queen as a tender princess. should still this stolen magazine, embroidered with a unicorn that has a ruby for a watch, fall into the incorrect arms, its intimate revelations could damage the total edifice of Tudor government.
