Unicorn's Blood

by Patricia Finney

An alternative history full of intrigue and political skullduggery set in the court of Elizabeth I. A thrilling and mesmerising read that brings all the sights and smells of sixteenth century London with it. Powerful stuff!

Thomasina had learned the gift of repose when the gypsies had shown her in a cage to the peasants as A True Pygmy Queen of the Amazon, painted with walnut juice, tattooed with woad, decorated with beads and dyed chicken feathers. Now beautiful and clean in Lucca velvet and gold tissue, she sat neatly on her cushion with her hands folded and waited for the Queen to finish thinking.
