    "Not great, not even close!"

    I love Elizabethan fiction but this one really pushed the envelope. The characters were not really likeable. You don't develop a real relationship or bond with the storyteller, characters or even the era. No a fav by far!

    "It was better when I read it myself"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I read the book a few years ago and remembered it because I enjoyed the whole plot and twists and turns. Somehow they weren't there.


    What could Ella March Chase have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It must have been in the reading of the book. The narrator could have changed up the voices and emotions a bit.


    Do you think The Virgin Queen's Daughter needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It will need some very strong characters and a lot of twists.


    Any additional comments?

    I am going to listen to it again and give it another chance.
