This is the second book of four and begins four years after the end of the previous book, "This Scepter'd Isle". It has taken this time for Elizabeth's Elven protector, Denoriel, a Bright Court Elf, to recover from the serious injury he received in a fight with Dark Court Elves at the end of the first book. The ruler of the Dark Court, was also seriously injured and has been slowly recovering, still vowing to keep Elizabeth from coming to the throne.
The plots and counter-plots of the two courts are woven around the actual lives of the mortal characters - Elizabeth, her younger half-brother, the future Edward VI, and her older half-sister, the future Bloody Mary - and their interaction with their awe- (and sometimes terror-) inspiring father, Henry VIII, and his last three wives. The book ends with Henry's death and its repercussions in the two Elven Courts..
The real and fictional mortals and the entirely (?) fictional elves are once again portrayed so realistically that the reader comes away feeling that this is the true history of the period and non-fiction is what is false.
