A clash of historical fiction and fantasy (fae, more specifically). A mixture I was hesitant to believe could work. But after The Memoirs of Lady Trent I was hungry for more Marie Brennan novels, so I hesitated only for a moment before diving into the first of the Onyx Court series. And, once there, I rather enjoyed myself.
The story took place during a time period in England with which I have always been fascinated, the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The historical fiction aspect of this novel is well-researched and detailed. That being said, the fantasy aspect of this novel is creative and clever. This book has the best from both genres.
