Ho hum. I almost didn’t review this … mostly out of shame. I still can’t quite believe I actually read to the end of this trilogy. This one was a very guilty pleasure with a heavier emphasis on the guilt rather than the pleasure. I read The Boleyn King about a year ago after my wonderful godmother bought me my Kindle. I thought it was fairly terrible but that the concept was interesting but then somehow or other read the following volume The Boleyn Deceit about a fortnight later. It was slightly more awful. Anyway, the concluding volume of the trilogy came out and I told myself not to read it. I really wasn’t going to. Months passed. I caved. It is definitely the worst of the trio. The Boleyn King trilogy makes that weird television show where Henry VIII is played by Jonathan Rhys-Myers and stays skinny as a rake look like a fly-on-the-wall documentary.

The basic concept is that Anne Boleyn carried a son to full term, kept her neck and Henry VIII stayed married to her. Rather strangely, Anne Boleyn remains a very minor character and is bumped off in the first book. Instead, we have the ‘Holy Quartet’ of ‘William’, Anne’s son, the familiar Elizabeth and then their two ‘best friends’, Minuette and Dominic. William is known as Henry IX and gained the throne when he was ten blah blah blah. Andersen cheerfully shoves aside any possible political implications of Henry VIII’s marriage having lasted any longer (difficulties treating with Spain, Reform having a stronger foothold, Mary and Elizabeth being married off younger etc) and instead we have a royal Love Triangle.

This is a superb ending to a trilogy that's kept me enthralled from start to finish. It's difficult to say much about the plot without giving too much away, so I'll just say that it's satisfyingly complex, full of intrigue and fascinating historical detail. Will's personal choices show him to be very much his father's son; all the characters have to make difficult and unpalatable decisions, and what happens to Dom and Minuette broke my heart into little pieces.

The highlight of the book was undoubtedly watching Elizabeth come into her own as she watches and waits in the wings, loving her brother dearly, but unable to deny the recklessness of his actions.

The ending is bitter-sweet, as befits a story that has had more than its fair share of both tragedy and triumph.

Brava! Ms Andersen.

A great ending to the trilogy of Anne Boleyn, loved the book, tearful in places but I am a softy and get very attached to the characters. Apart from the Tudor family, (Annes son living, not dying) history continues as it did with the reign of Elizabeth the First later in 1557. A fabulous read with a great and interesting twist.

Despite having survived the smallpox, William aka King Henry IX of England, still suffers from the affects of his illness, no longer giving the careful thought to matters of state that he used to. Announcing to everyone that he intends to marry Minuette, he causes anguish and rifts in his court, as well as between him and his best friend, Dominic, who Minuette married in secret. When secrets get revealed in the Tudor court there can be hell to pay, and even a friend's love can not stand against a lover scorned...

I cried. Just getting it out there. In the last few chapters of the book (and by that I mean the last quarter) I cried several times at the pure tension, emotion and hell that the characters are put through. I considered for a while how best to write this review, because I want to try and involve spoilers, but in some ways that just isn't possible. So though I will try and avoid them where possible (even if that means getting a little cryptic) but one or two may be about.

So firstly...Minuette and Dominic's relationship. This was pretty well established by this point (considering they were married at the beginning of the book) and yet, they had so many hurdles to overcome. I loved the fact that, despite the times they had a marriage of equals (maybe down to the fact that no one actually knew they were married) but even so at times the contemporary views about marriage came out.

The series as a whole is a wonderful idea, and I really enjoyed reading it. However, I have to say that I was a little disappointed with the ending; the premise of using a "what if" moment of history to create a whole new history just wasn't carried through quite far enough. The author presented herself with the opportunity to continue in spectacular fashion, but I felt that the moment was missed and left me feeling a bit dissatisfied. However, that could easily be rectified with another book, which I would read without hesitation.

I don't mean to sound negative, because the series is fabulous and is definitely worth a go!
