A painstakingly drawn picture of royal medieval England from bedchamber to battleground (Los Angeles Times Book Review)
The reader is left with the haunting sensation that perhaps the good a man does can live after him - especially in the hands of a dedicated historian (San Diego Union)
Those who know Richard III from Shakespeare will find that Sharon Kay Penman presents a contrasting view of the English monarch . . . He's an altogether nice man, a romantic hero as suitable to our late twentieth-century standards . . . As he was to those of medieval England . . . There is a vengeful quality to her insistence that is appealing; it makes for a good story (New York Times Book Review)
Penman's novel, rich in detail and research, attempts to set the record straight . . . It is an uncommonly fine novel, one that brings a far-off time to brilliant life (Chattanooga Daily Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Oh but doesn't mud stick.
Is it biased? It's pro-Richard, pro-York, so of course it's biased... but not at the expense of historical fidelity. The author takes the same facts as a pro-Lancastrian author would and interprets them in favour of York.
Is it a good read? Very. Thirty years on it's as captivating and moving as it was when I first read it. It made me a Ricardian and it would again.
