Publisher's Summary

Young and beautiful Violetta may be of royal blood, but her kingdom is in shambles when she arrives in London on a mysterious mission. Her journey has been long and her adventures many, but it is not until she meets the playwright William Shakespeare that she gets to tell the entire story from beginning to end. Violetta and her comic companion, Feste, have come in search of an ancient holy relic that the evil Malvolio has stolen from their kingdom. But where will their remarkable quest - and their most unusual story - lead?

In classic Celia Rees style, it is an engrossing journey, full of political intrigue, danger, and romance. This wholly original story is spun from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, and includes both folly and suspense that would make the Bard proud.

Not her best but a good story, just not great.

I love Celia Rees's works normally, she is one of my favorites even though she is more for teens than adults. I have loved everything she has written. While this was not terrible, it was not great. It is worth the listen and the narrator is very good, it just was not as great as Pirates or Sovay. Maybe I was too distracted by things around me when I listened, it just did not hit me as her other novels have.

Good story, well read. Had a brief lull, but nothing that made me want to stop listening.
