12+: Fool's Girl - Celia Rees

Release Date: 04/04/11


Violetta and Feste have come to London to rescue the holy relics taken from the church in Illyria by the evil Malvolio. Their journey has been long and their adventures many, but it is not until they meet the playwright William Shakespeare that they get to tell the entire story from beginning to end! But where will this remarkable tale ultimately lead Violetta and her companion? And will they manage to save themselves, and the relics from the very evil intentions of Malvolio.


My first novel by Celia and to be honest whilst I expected to be thrown to the wolves I was pleasantly surprised to find that it didn’t alienate me. With no prior knowledge of the other three titles in this series the book was wonderfully researched, had some wonderful twists and will generate a real love of adventure for future fans of the historical fiction genre. Add to this a wonderful sense of prose, great characters (both lead and support) which when backed with a plotline that will grip the reader really did make this a title to enjoy. Great fun all in and one that has left me having to seek out other titles in the series so that I can get the full flavour. Wonderful.
