fabulous continuation in the trilogy
im not known for my patience and im absolutely gutted I have to wait till july for the third instalment....laura Andersen is just that good!!!
Where the first book concentrated on the friendship of Will, Dominic, Elizabeth and Minuette, this one brings the romance to the fore with Minuette and Dominic desperately in love and unable to be together, and Elizabeth and Robert Dudley in a relationship that is just as frustrating, albeit for different reasons.
Although it is clear that William is a very shrewd young man, well able to weigh his own decisions and to hold his own amid all the intrigues of the court, it's also apparent that he has inherited his father's talent for self-deception and his inability to see beyond his own desires when it comes to the woman he wants. Ms Andersen draws many parallels between William's desire for Minuette and his father's for Anne Boleyn, and the way that his desperation for one woman caused him to completely disregard the best interests of his country.
While William is the titular focus of the book, the real hero of the story is Dominic, now created Duke of Exeter. Courageous, honourable and fiercely loyal to those he loves, he's by nature reticent and unobtrusive, despite having been raised to one of the highest offices in the land. He's the one person Will knows will not flatter him and sometimes it falls to Dominic to say the things that nobody else will. But he hates the deception he and Minuette are having to perpetuate, a deception that seems in danger of tearing them apart. For me, their relationship was the heart of the novel, and I felt for Dominic especially, as he struggled to maintain his customary composure.Read more ›
I'd also love to know the fate of Minuette and Dominic, and hope they have a happy ending.
I really hope this author does another series like this, with Jane Grey being crowned Queen and keeping the crown, as I have enjoyed the Boleyn series so much.
Keeping their love a secret from the ever amourous King William, Minuette and Dominic are embroiled in the schemes and plots the surround the Tudor dynasty. While William is determined to marry Minuette, others wish that he would honour the French treaty and marry the Princess he is promised to. Meanwhile, though resigned to a foreign marriage, Elizabeth still has hope that she could be able to marry her lover, Robert Dudley. But now she has been told something by John Dee, something that could completely change her life and give her something that she never thought she'd have...

I loved book one of The Boleyn Trilogy and was looking forward to reading book 2, and I tell you what, it blew me away. I was quickly dragged back into the Tudor court in which the characters live, even though several of the characters never existed in history (including the King!). So much so that even though I'd finished the book (and started another one) I wanted to dive back into the story (so maybe reading book 3 isn't that far away!) There aren't that many books that have quite begged me as much to be read!
The historical characters that are a part of The Boleyn Deceit were all well thought out, or at least I thought so. I think that Elizabeth very much reflects a younger version of the Queen that she will become, and you can see the journey that she is going down to become her.Read more ›
