By Slanderous Tongues (Scepter'd Isle #3) - Mercedes Lackey, Roberta Gellis

Trouble, trouble, the plots do bubble! King Henry VIII has finally joined his unmerry wives in the afterlife, and the Unseleighe Sidhe, the Dark Elves, are bent on subverting the English throne and bringing back the sorrow, horror and despair of the Middle Ages. After all, that's what made the bad old days so much fun – for them!

Enlightenment's hope? A mere fourteen-year-old girl. A bright and adaptable fourteen-year-old to be sure, but still – what chance has such a young thing against the Unseleighe Sidhe's tangled web of treachery and depravity?

A pretty good one. You see, the girl's name is Elizabeth, and that fiery red hair is no lie. Whether immortal lord or malicious mortal, young Elizabeth Tudor's enemies cross her at their peril.
