Taste of Treason (The Tudor Enigma #2) by April Taylor
Book two of The Tudor Enigma
Blood, frogs and a deadly threat to the firstborn…
Luke Ballard, Dominus Elemancer and Privy Inquirer into Divers Mischiefs and Grievances, has grown his magical powers since his last encounter with the Sunderers, dark sorcerers who will stop at nothing—including partnering with England's mortal enemies—to destroy the throne. But is he skilled enough to protect his own and prevent tragedy from reaching the royal family?
The continuation of Tudor rule and the future of England's true religion rest with King Henry IX's new bride, Queen Madeline of Scotland. Pregnant with a possible heir, she's nearly killed—twice—in incidents that bizarrely mimic the Plagues of Egypt. And she is not alone. All of Hampton Court, it seems, has been surrounded by a dark cloud of otherworldly danger.
Fearful for his wife and unborn child, King Henry can only turn to one man.
I loved the mix of alternate history and magic in the first book of The Tudor Enigma. That continues in book two. Once again Luke must face a terrible threat from the dark sorcerers and once again a large cast of characters help defeat the danger. The world building continues, as does the character development. While Luke wins over evil again there are still danger left in the picture so I think we will see more of this Tudor world and its great cast of characters.
