This is an intreguing premise that falls flat. The story has holes which defy logic and the reader was very bad as well. The only other I had read was Witness, which was much better. I was expecting much more. Lots of sex scenes, which also really don't help.
A better narrator. A better storyteller.
Alison manages to make an exciting period of history dreadfully boring. She quotes passages from the old historians, More, Polydor Virgil and many others, but is unable to construct a story from it. She could write a history book, but cannot write a story that makes your feel as though you are there or care. Margaret George Autobiograohy of Henry VIII ot Pool's E. Rex.. Tudor England's Young King. These are stories well told of the Tudor period. Elizabeth of York by Weir is painful! is painful.
Who made this narrator change her voice into a medieval zombie for every quote. Disasterous.
I didn't realize the book was decades old. Even the update is the 80's. A lot has changed in this field.
