Publisher's Summary

Knowing she was seen as a threat to the queen she served, Lady Katherine Grey, legitimate heir to the throne, longs only for the comfort of a loving marriage and a quiet life far from the intrigue of the Tudor court. After seeing her sister become the pawn of their parents and others seeking royal power and then lose their lives for it, she is determined to avoid the vicious struggles over power and religion that dominate Queen Elizabeth's court. Until she finds love - then Kat is willing to risk it all, even life in prison.

Contains mature themes.

    "Terrible"

    This is the second book by E Knight I've tried to listen to and found so bad I was unable to finish (the other being My Lady Viper: Tales From the Tudor Court). Both are badly written, historically inaccurate and not even internally consistent--for instance, this book describes Queen Elizabeth I, as a 14-yr-old, first as having "light eyes" and then, a couple of sentences later, as having "dark eyes full of hatred". I don't mind sex scenes, but I do want them to be well written, and this book fails miserably even as soft porn. However, the chapters do start with nice period quotes--so I can legitimately give one star. Not enough to make it possible to finish the book, though.

    "Excellent"
    Would you listen to Prisoner of the Queen again? Why?

    I really enjoyed this book, the reader lacked any kind of personality and seemed distant from the character, sad. But interesting story. Don't think I'd listen again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Prisoner of the Queen?

    The pure jealousy the queen had toward the main character had me despising her even more than I did already, the taking away of her youngest child was a strong moment.


    Have you listened to any of Corrie James’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    This was the first book of this author I'd listened to..


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found it heart breaking, though I never actually shed tears, I did get emotional.
