Publish Date: April 1, 2010

Genre: Historical Fiction

Book Blurb:A leader as unexpected as he is inexperienced, young Richard II must find a way to triumph over a fierce conflict more destructive than any foreign enemy.

Book Review: I am really starting to enjoy historical fiction so much more these days, so many great authors are re-writing old stories and they are all just great. I love Henry the VIII he has always been my favorite infamous monarch, but I might have a soft spot of Richard II now as well. The beginning of the book is slow, you must push through it a but, but once you do, it is worth it. I enjoyed the drama of this story, it's like a soap opera in book form, amazing twists and plots, murder, love, and intrigue. It is great. I will definitely look out for more work by this author.

  1. Historical fiction is not my usual genre, but every so often you find one that's just SO good.
