"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...

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...

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...

Three sisters and three very different voices from the past all coming from one family. Philippa Gregory's The last Tudor is the final story in her successful series that began with Anne Boleyn. Starting with Jane Grey, the doomed nine day queen, Gregory draws a portrait of a teen devoted to both...

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.

This wasn't my favorite of Gregory's novels, but still wildly entertaining. I found the story of the Grey sisters to be really compelling. I already knew about Jane Grey, the nine days queen, and her tragic fate, but the story of her sister Catherine was especially upsetting. So tragic! It defini...

Lady Jane Gray is one of the more amazing though less-known figures in history. Her mother was the sister of Henry VIII. She was taught Latin, Hebrew, Greek, and Italian from an early age, requesting to learn Hebrew so that she could make better biblical translations. She was an ardent Protestant...

This was perhaps my favourite of the Tudor Plantagenet series by Philippa Gregory. It tells the story of the three Grey sisters. Jane who is otherwise known as the 9 day queen and the only one I'd actually heard of, and her sisters Katherine and Mary who were equally persecuted by a bitter and at...
