She alone holds a secret which, if made public, will end the princes reign and liberate his oppressed people.

The Anger of Angels Reviews
This wonderfully written tale marks the return of New Zealand author Sherryl Jordan to the historic fiction market. Set in a country inspired by Italy, it encompasses two realms: one ruled by a generous and benevolent duke, the other by a cruel prince.
Our heroine is Giovanna, the jester's daughter. She has had a relatively unconventional upbringing and dreams of travel and adventure. That is, until her father's latest performance is heard by the wrong ears - and suddenly the cruel prince's eyes, ...more
Strong adventure fantasy.
I'm giving this four stars as I enjoyed the story and the characters, however there are a few plot lines that are vastly unrealistic. A 16-year old girl would not travel and take a hotel room on her own, nor would she spend so much time with a young man unchaperoned (her friends don't but it seems ok for her). Having said that, I'm expecting a sequel - there is much more story to tell and I'm looking forward to it.
Recommended to young readers 13 yrs (Y9) and up.
