Philippa Gregory’s latest book is as good as a play… if you like fantastical parodies. If you want to read a well-written novel about the Greys, I recommend Susan Higginbotham’s Her Highness, the Traitor instead.
Here we are again. Another year, another Philippa Gregory release; and many of the sa...

"The devil protects his own."
A Game of Thrones, indeed. There is more vanity, spite, jealousy, arrogance, murder and mayhem in this crooked line of succession to the Tudor dynasty that would, undoubtedly, make Ned Stark's head spin. Most certainly, winter has come.
Adding to this evil brew is Papi...

Starting with Jane Grey, the doomed nine day queen, Gregory draws a portrait of a teen devoted to both...

This is the 15th book by this author that I have read. I have enjoyed this particular series so much. I love this kind of historical fiction. When reading her books, I inevitably have to google these historical characters, to see how the book is going to end. This one was no different. The author...

4.5 stars. I love Philippa Gregory, she has the ability to take historical people and make them incredibly real. The reason this loses half a star is because I struggled a bit with Lady Jane Grey (I had the same problem with another book about her earlier this year, Innocent Traitor.) I absolutel...

I find Philippa Gregory's Tudor novels very hit and miss. A couple I adore but others I don't and sometimes find them hard to finish. Unfortunately, this is one of the latter - largely, I think, because the characters are allowed no freedom to develop. All is rigid. All is black and white.

3 1/2 stars
This has to be hands down the saddest Phillipa Gregory I have ever listened to.
Jane Grey – queen for 9 days, more pious than the Pope, eldest of the Grey sisters and to be honest not the most riveting character to read about (sorry Jane)
Catherine Grey – married in secret for love and p...

This was another fascinating Tudor historical fiction, this one about the Grey sisters. The Grey sisters are the granddaughters of King Henry VIII's younger sister, Mary. Upon King Edward's death, and per his will, the Protestant reformers put Jane Grey on the throne instead of Edward's sister, M...

Once upon a time, a was a big fan of Philippa Gregory. Her novels piqued an interest in medieval history for me, and therein lies the problem; once you begin to delve into the history books, Gregory's novels are rendered frustrating and often infuriating, so often is she lax when it comes to the...

After reading many books on the Tudors it was a nice change to see lesser known members of the extended family (The Grey Sisters, cousins to Elizabeth 1) taking centre stage .
