My Thoughts on Assassin’s Masque:
In Assassin’s Masque, Peggy is led on one wild goose chase after another, each one dredging up new suspicions and casting old characters in new light. She tests out many theories, makes some mistakes, and ultimately proves herself to be the sharp and troublesome spy her enemies hope she isn’t. She takes everything in stride, and only occasionally pauses to collect her wits.
I hoped this wouldn’t be the last book in the series, but I think it is and I’m sad because it has been so much fun to read. If you are looking for a fun, humorous mystery set in an amazing historical setting, then you should definitely read this series. Other than a small amount of cursing and suggestive remarks, these books are quite clean, too. This is a fabulous series and I and would happily recommend this to anyone looking for a good YA spy novel.Content: Some mild cursing and suggestive remarks
