Unicorn's Blood

Patricia Finney

By the writer of Firedrake's Eye: a masterpiece of voice, historic element, and mental perception to rival Peter Ackroyd and A. S. Byatt

Her stature approached that of a deity -- Queen Elizabeth I, the Virgin Queen. yet this icon was once greater than a mirrored image of the Queen's own aura, it was once a political construction, designed to carry a fractious humans together.

Unicorn's Blood is ready a deadly mystery, the lifestyles of a personal diary saved by means of the Queen as a tender princess. should still this stolen magazine, embroidered with a unicorn that has a ruby for an eye fixed, fall into the incorrect palms, its intimate revelations might wreck the complete edifice of Tudor government.
