Anne recommends this combination of fantasy, romance, and political intrigue. Sage is supposed to be married off but chooses instead to work as the matchmaker’s apprentice. As she and a unit of soldiers accompany a group of prospective brides, a plot to overthrow the king is discovered, and Sage is recruited by one of the soldiers to spy for them.
