Publisher's Summary

The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey.

In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history - because sometimes history needs a little help.

At 16, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren't for Jane to worry about. Jane gets to be queen of England.

Like that could go wrong.

    "Hysterical Alternate History"

    I haven't had this much fun reading a book in a long time. Probably because it's been so long since I've read anything by Jasper Fforde. There were many laugh-out-loud moments in the reading of this book.

    My Lady Jane is the story of Jane Gray who ruled England for nine days after the death of Edward VI (Henry VIII's son). But this isn't the story that you read in the history books. ("Part II: In Which We Throw History Completely Out the Window." Haha.) I didn't know what exactly the authors had changed when I started the book, and I liked that way because when I found out the central premise in the first chapter or so I was highly amused.

    My Lady Jane was written by three authors, Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows, and they obviously had a fantastic time writing this book together. I love, I mean really love, all the narrator asides. I thought it was really fun how they were so self-conscious and meta about the telling of the tale.

    The audiobook of My Lady Jane was so stickin' fantastic. Kathrine Kellgren narrates the book. (She also narrated Austenland which is one of my very favorite audiobooks). Kellgren's narration definitely made the book even funnier. She hits it out of the park with her over-the-top, tongue in cheek style. (Is that enough idioms for one sentence or what?)

    Now I'm kind of at a loss for what to listen to next, and it's been a long time since a book has wrecked me for any other book.

    "Big mistake"

    The performance by Katherine Kellgren RUINED this story. Too shrill and over-the-top. It drained all the fun out of the revisionist history of Lady Jane Grey. FYI, I enjoyed KK's narration on the Her Royal Spyness series, but this is awful.

    "The Best Novel I Have "Read" This Summer"
    Would you listen to My Lady Jane again? Why?

    Yes, because it took history and twisted the plot a little to make the story more interesting.


    What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

    I loved how excitedly she read the book. Her performance with each character made the authors' words more enjoyable because I could see the characters because they each had a distinct voices.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They Totally Consummated!!

    Words cannot express how wonderful this book is. It's quirky, hilarious and a wonderful twist on history. The narrator is very dramatic, but it works so well for the story. You must read this book, it's getting added to my very prestigious favourite list.

    "Saucy & Sassy Fun"

    I haven't enjoyed a book this much in a long time. Channeling The Princess Bride, this is a tale of adventure, romance, and a horse--a cute horse who is also a man. They nailed the nods to pop culture, history, and classical lit. It's not often you get Shakespeare, Monty Python, The Game of Thrones, and the Catholic/Protestant struggles for the throne (and more) all in one place--while laughing and rooting for a rat (well, not really a rat--you'll see). This book is great for teens and up.

    "ABSOLUTELY WONDERFULLY AMAZING"

    So, you know that you really are enjoying a book when you find yourself the object of the weirdo stare! I laughed out loud so many times while listening, that I don't even know how many times I received the weirdo stare. I would hope the authors would continue on their skewed events of history with other books like this. Katherine Kellgren was AMAZING!
