Customer Review

on 7 October 2013
This is the second novel in the trilogy about Thomas Cromwell, but it could easily be read on its own.
Although everyone knows the story of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, it is fascinating to read all the detail behind their relationship and the accusations made against her.
I never normally read historical fiction, but this surpasses standard historical fiction. You almost feel like you are there at the Court, and all the characters seem to act and speak exactly as you would expect them to.
It is just beautifully written, and I can't praise it enough! The last 100 pages in particular are just magnificent.
I also found it slightly easier to read than Wolf Hall, and it didn't take me as long, so that's a bonus, as I did find myself getting lost occasionally in Wolf Hall, and forgetting who the (many) characters were.
