    6. Interesting YA or Middle School read about a girl no age given who takes up place as a nurse in the household of John Dee, adviser and magician for Queen Elizabeth I Simply written with an intriguing plot and a touch of the paranormal Well written historically I enjoyed it and I m looking forward to reading the next two books in the series

    7. This was actually better than I expected The characters were solid and the plot was interesting I didn t have high hopes but it actually surprised me for the better It s for a younger audience than me, and I would have enjoyed it a lot if I had read it when I was twelve, but it was still enjoyable.

    8.

    14. Magie et mascarade sont au coeur de ce passionnant roman, dont la configuration historique, plus que soign e, est admirablement reproduite L auteur apporte des notes de pr cision en fin de roman, pour expliquer le contexte et l importance des personnages rencontr s dans cette fiction le docteur Dee, par exemple, a bel et bien exist L histoire est racont e de fa on limpide, vue travers la sensibilit de la narratrice et h ro ne Lucy est une jeune fille attachante, port e par une curiosit qui frise [...]

    15. I have nothing much to say about this book I mean, it is a nice book pretty interesting too I liked the fact that Lucy, the narrator, always gets in trouble because of her curiosity Like, even though she s had tons of problems because of that, she is still as curious as she used to be I like how she admires the Queen, also The characters are quite nice even too nice, after all Dr Dee, Lucy s boss, is so odd When I started reading this book, I hoped that there was gonna be a relationship between [...]

    16.

    17. as a change from my usual YA reads, this book is historical fiction with no romantic subplots supernatural elements are often shown to be a rouse, and the main character is easy to live through without being bland Lucy has an identity and i like that I have a running list of vocabulary words from this book that arent in the glossary at the back Hoper definitely did her research on Eizabethan times.i dont know if ill read the rest of the series, but i can telyou that i liked At The House of the M [...]

    18. This is a very accessible YA novel in which a young girl comes to work in the household of Dr John Dee and becomes involved in various intrigues around the court of Elizabeth I.I felt Hooper did a good job of capturing the period and even though it was very much written for YA, it was a quick fun read I think it would be a good introduction to the period for teens with an engaging central character.Hooper includes a short list of sources, a glossary and author s note on the historical period.

    19. This book wasokay I think it settles in the 14 and up category It is a fast and easy read that is considered Historical Fiction And maybe that s what turned me off toward the end was Queen Elizabeth s loving and forgiving attitude I don t think, based on all I ve seen and read about her, that she would have responded the way she did But, that s a personal opinion and I did enjoy the other characters I do want to read the second book just to see how it turns out.

    20. It took me a little while to get into this story, mostly because it s been a long while since I ve read any middle grade books Once I did get into it, I fell in love with this book It s well written, provides lots of little tidbits about the era, and a character who makes some questionable choices that add some intensity to the book Best of all, it had jester s in it I m a fan of any novel with jesters As far as I m concerned they re the unsung historical heroes.

    21. Lucy, fleeing a destitue situation at home, secures a place as servant in the house of Dr John Dee, magician to Queen Elizabeth Determined to one day serve the Queen at court and elevate her position in life, Lucy is delighted to find that the Her Grace visits Dee on occasion But little does she realise, where ever the Queen travels, mystery, rumours and danger follow in hot pursuit.

    22. Eigentlich habe ich an der Geschichte nichts auszusetzen, hatte aber mit einem Einzelband gerechnet und war deshalb sehr berrascht, weil es sich im Endeffekt doch um eine Reihe handelt Weil deswegen viele Fragen offen bleiben und r ckblickend alles eher wie eine Einleitung wirkt, ziehe ich doch noch einen Stern ab, um den Folgeb nden die M glichkeit f r eine Steigerung zu lassen.

    23. Interesting plot, with plenty of potential for the sequels By Royal Command and The Betrayal Lucy is precocious and curious, but with a head on her shoulders that makes her lovable instead of annoying.

    24. Je me suis tr s vite prise dans cette histoire et j ai d couvert une poque que je ne connaissais pas L auteur parle de la magie qui tait la mode l poque mais avec parcimonie et expose les limites de celle ci C est le premier tome d une saga qui me donne envie de lire les autres livres.

    25. Lucy gets a job as a maid at the house of Dr Dee and begins to hear strange noises What could it be This was a quick but good read The writing style was good and it ends hinting at a sequel Definitely reading the next book Recommend this.

    26. Petite lecture YA assez plaisante.Cependant, m ayant t vendu comme roman historique, j aurais aim davantage de faits temporels afin de l immerger totalement dans le roman Ici, je me suis sentie hors de l histoire tout au long de ma lecture.

    27. Ooh, ilove Thomas Fool I loved this book It s engaging and i would love to serve the queen as well, ask me anytime

    28. Loved this book well written once again became absorbed in the character Looking forward to reading the follow on from this book all her others.
