Publisher's Summary

Perfect for fans of Philippa Gregory and Alison Weir, The Virgin's War is award-winning author Laura Andersen's gripping conclusion in the trilogy about the next generation of Tudor royals, bringing to life the drama and intrigue of Queen Elizabeth I; her daughter, Anabel, the Princess of Wales; and two countries locked in a battle for the ages.

As the Spanish Armada approaches Irish shores, Elizabeth I feels the full burden of her royal office. She must not let England fall to her former husband, King Philip of Spain. And Princess Anabel, their daughter, has yet to declare with whom her allegiance - and her support - lie. Exiled Stephen Courtenay is in France with his brother, Kit, who has his own reasons for avoiding England. But rumblings of war, a sinister plot, and their loyalty to the crown call them home. Yet not even Pippa Courtenay, their sister, gifted with divine sight, can foresee the grave danger that awaits them all.

As Queen Elizabeth commits her riches, her honor, and her people to the approaching conflict, she will risk everything - even her life - to preserve England's freedom.

What the Critics Say

"If you can't manage without HBO's Game of Thrones, this Shakespearean-era fantasy may be your cup of tea. This volume imagines that Queen Elizabeth, known as 'The Virgin Queen' actually wasn't one - but married King Philip of Spain. When the couple becomes estranged, their daughter Princess Annabel must choose her alliance. It's a quandary that makes the clash between the Starks and the Lannisters look tame." (New York Post)

"Not only has Andersen created a believable world, but characters readers have taken to heart. There is intrigue, passion, family drama, loyalty, sadness and great joy within these pages. As the novel moves quickly and intelligently to its climax, [Laura] Andersen fans will rejoice!" (RT Book Reviews)

    "wonderful what if"

    What if Queen Elizabeth had a daughter? What if she took on the Spanish King as her husband? and then defeated him in battle?
