What I truly enjoyed about this book was the glimpse into King Francois and Queen Claude’s decadent court. Accused by Henry VIII of adultery, incest, treason, and other crimes, she was beheaded in still in her early thirties. Poseidon and Athens Ra are the two rival brothers who govern them. Corrupted by a world that mistreats women, she sets out to corrupt others.

Truthfully, my take on Anne is that she was more modern than the times could allow and her power was only destroyed thru a rewrite of who she actually was.
Anne grieves for her sister, who had earlier been betrothed to someone she loved. When you tell a story in first person POV, that person has to be present at all the important events; I don’t mind that at all.

May 24, YoSafBridg rated it really liked it Shelves: I have read so many books on Anne Boleyn over the last anja years that you’d think I’d have exhausted all of the possible plots by tiktos.
