Spy fiction, literature concerning the forms of espionage, was a sub-genre derived from the novel during the nineteenth century, which then evolved into a discrete genre before the First World War (1914–18), when governments established modern intelligence agencies in the early twentieth century. As a genre, spy fiction is thematically related to the novel of adventure, the thriller and the politico–military thriller.

We also discuss films and tv shows involving characters of books in the spy thriller genre or ones that may have been inspired by books from the spy thriller genre.

[close] W E L C O M E Amaryllis Academy was originally a "college" of sorts for the most talented royals. Here, they receive any and all resources to pursue whatever they want. But a few years later, some officials decided that commoners deserved a chance to receive such unparalleled education, and formed a sister school for 8th to 12th graders in order to make the transition into Amaryllis easier for those who would be selected to enter the academy. But that was all a facade. The sister school was actually created to train the children to become spies, for the officials had realized that selling information on the royals would be extremely profitable. Only a few students would be told and enlisted, of course, but in the next decade, Amaryllis Academy became a school for royals, commoners, and spies. Even so, one thing remains common with every student: passion and the desire for a new life. So welcome to Amaryllis Academy, and welcome to your chance to start anew. **Note**: This rp was created more for a general setting than a strict story-line. For this reason, I have a discussion for "plot-based rp requests" so you have the freedom to create your own story to rp. Want a character who has secret magical powers? Or do you want a commoner whose mother was royal but disowned and is now driven by bitterness? Go for it! The one request I have is to not make your character too powerful.
