Cleverly mixing history and fantasy,this is a well-written tale of the last Plantagenet king,Richard lll. Reedman begins the story with the events leading up to the battle at Bosworth field; here the actual events begin to intertwine with fantasy. Folklore and the Mythology of the Sacred King ,who must die for the good of the land,are layered through the historical happenings,and beyond,to the aftermath of the Battle. The author knows her history and creates a flawless blending of the real and the mythical. Heartily recommend this one. I'll be getting the print version when it's available!
I received a copy of this book in return for a fair review.
I loved this book;it combines a sound knowledge of the period (Wars of the Roses and reign of Richard lll) with a lively style of writing. The narrator is Alianore Audley,a spy in Edward IV's intelligence service,and she manages to fall in and out of trouble on a regular basis. Her opinions of the various historical characters are very funny, and give a whole new perspective on the latter part of the 15thCentury:) If you know your history,you'll definitely enjoy this lively romp ...
What really happened to the Princes in the Tower? This story explores that mystery,and puts forward an interesting theory about who was responsible,and why. Yes,it is an 'adult' story,but the erotic passages are tastefully written and work to advance the plot. The characters are well-rounded and believable,and the author obviously knows their history. Recommended for all those readers who like a good plot along with their erotica:) The only complaint I have is that I found this story too short..any chance of a sequel?
