    " The premise, characters, everything was so unbelievable that I really couldn't continue after about chapter 5. Disappointing considering the reputation of the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 8/7/2010

    " This book is a fictional story that plays off the story of Queen Elizabeth I and the extended family of England.

    It was an okay story but not a lot of excitement or action.

    If the reader likes the story of Queen Elizabeth I they might like this book. "
