Book Review: The Queen's Bastard by C.E. Murphy
The main character is the bastard daughter of fake Elizabeth. She really sucks as a spy in most respects. She just sleeps around which really is not spying at all. The story takes forever and there is very little tension. In fact the story takes a really odd turn when the girl figures out that she can use magic and then starts basically torturing friends with it just to see how fat she can go. It threw off most of the book.
I kept reading because I was waiting for something interesting to happen and it never really did. I was rather bored by the story and everything. This was just not really worth the effort.
