Charles and Alexander of Cleves, recently arrived in England, are identical twins. Tall, athletic, clever, and unmarried, they are the talk of King Henry VIII's court. lady Margaret is a calculating maid of honor serving the mercurial Queen Anne Boleyn. All around her swirls intrigue, treachery, violence, and prejudice. Finessing a union with either son of Cleves - it hardly matters which - could possibly mean escape. The Cleves brothers, however, are not in England to make merry with Henry VIII's courtiers. Instead, they are there to prevent the king's next marriage. As newly minted Assets of The 48, they have spent the whole of their young lives training to serve the clandestine institution that raised them. They are prepared to do anything to see The 48's agenda succeed. Even if that means rewriting the history of the world.

"A secret government organization sends two brothers back in time on a perilous mission to Tudor England to rewrite the history of King Henry VIII's court"--
- Random House, Inc.
Henry VIII's Tudor court meets time-traveling teen assassins in this riveting thriller.
Twins Charlie and Alex Douglas are the newest time travelers recruited to the Forty-Eight, a clandestine military group in charge of manipulating history. The brothers are tasked with preventing Henry VIII from marrying Jane Seymour and arrive in 1536 feeling confident, but the Tudor court is not all banquets and merriment: it is a deep well of treachery, torture, lust, intrigue, and suspicion.
That makes it especially dangerous for young people who refuse to "know their place"--young women who might, say, want to marry for love instead of status, or young men who would feel free to love each other, if it weren't forbidden. Told in alternating perspectives among Charlie, Alex, and sixteen-year-old Lady Margaret, a ladies' maid to Queen Anne Boleyn, The 48 captures the sights, smells, sounds, and hazards of an unhinged Henry VIII's court from the viewpoint of one person who lived that history--and two teens who have been sent to turn it upside down.
Includes an author's note touching on her inspiration for the book and the research she did to bring the Tudor Court to life.
