My Thoughts:
I have become one of the many obsessed with  The Tudor family legacy because of the Showtime TV show The Tudors about the royal family. There for I enjoy reading books about this family and learning more about their impact on the world.

With that being said I fell in love with this novel. I'm looking forward to the rest of what this series has to offer.

Hope you enjoyed this review, Ashley
