If you liked the series Vikings, then you will love this book! It tells the story of two siblings, a warrior and his little sister, who are separated by life's trials but still connected by their choices and love of each other. Brutal and captivating!
I eagerly devoured this story about a little known historical character, Jane Gray. The author adds a mythical and magical sci-fi spin to appeal to young adult readers. This tale describes Prince Edward and Elizabeth Tudor as heirs to King Henry the 8th and the challenges they faced as teenagers navigating a dangerous time in England.
What if King Henry the 8th had fathered a son who survived? I read almost exclusively from books based on the royal court of England-past so the idea of a surviving heir kind of rocked my world, but I stayed the course and continued to read as I fell in love with her heroine "Minuette" and her dashing hero as their love story grew and blossomed only to be thwarted by the Bolyen heir. This is book 1 of a trilogy and I've now read them all and am forcing another Phoenix employee to do the same. A great, light read for lovers of Philippa Gregory.
England's struggle for power between the reigning King suffering from "sleeping sickness" and those he trusted to protect Him. Tudors, Percys and The deadly Warwick fight to the death to Rule England!
Great reading for lovers of Phillipa Gregory and Joanna Hickson.
The first book in the War of the Roses series.

The author, Elizabeth May, can capture her readers and transport them intro her fantasy world from the first chapter until the last gripping moments on the final page. I can't wait for the next book!
