Sequel trades action for romance, loses some charm.

This book picks up where Maid of Secrets left off, but it changes gears along with narrators; gone are the action, adventure, and mystery as Meg navigated her way through an unknown world. Romance fans will delight as events are now seen through Beatrice, a court veteran on the verge of getting married. Missing are vivid and colorful descriptions of daily life that add charm and depth to the historical setting, although readers of the first installment might be satisfied with such already-established details. The focus here is on hand-wringing of the "will he or won't he, does he or doesn't he?" variety. Fans of historical romance will enjoy it, but those looking for strong, independent, action-oriented characters may have to wait for the next installment.
