At sixteen, 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.
I don’t have too much to say about this one, other than that I enjoyed it for the most part.
I would consider myself more educated then the average person on what went on with Henry VIII and all of the tragedy that befell his reign and after. I think this book had a nice, light spin on it.
My main critique, and what kept it from a higher rating, I think, was that I never really felt engrossed in the story and always felt an arms distance away.
I mean it has everything in it that you could want for a good time. It’s funny, it’s playing off of old history, and it’s light. But, in the end, it just didn’t hit all of my buttons for an amazing read.
