Velvet Undercover Teri Brown

There are a host of YA novels (and many other novels in many other genres too) that I've intended to read for a long while now. One such novel I can now cross off that mental list is Velvet Undercover. A YA historical novel set during the height of WWI, 'Velvet' is as intriguing as it is compelling. I love that our heroine isn't a practiced, jaded spy, and is instead a relatable young woman working through her many fears for the good of King and country.

Today, I'm hanging out on Silver Petticoat's fabulous brand of epic and reviewing Velvet Undercover. The novel is perfect for anyone who loves Agent Carter (despite the separation by wars and eras), and is certainly a charming, simplistic read that I have the greatest admiration for (because I so enjoyed it).

If you're curious about my thoughts for this novel or want to read the review in full, you can follow the links to do just that. Otherwise, below is the book details and usual review "snippet."

Velvet Undercover by Teri Brown – A Captivating YA WWI Spy Novel

Fiction set in the WWI era seems to be one that walks in the shadows. Or at least this applies to the fiction I’m most familiar with. Since Downton Abbey, I think this part of history has received more recognition, however, it always takes second place to the well represented WWII. From the moment I saw the cover reveal for Teri Brown’s novel, Velvet Undercover and then read its synopsis, I was captivated. A young female spy? A WWI Edwardian setting? Yes, please! All of this sounded wonderfully complex and emotionally primed for one heck of a story. Continue Reading ➔
