"Gregory is...one of the very best writers of historical fiction....The book reads like a thriller, and is impossible to put down, even if you know the outcome" --Liz Smith Praise for The White Princess "Bring on the blood, sex and tears! . . . You name it, it's all here."--USA Today "Loyalties are torn, paranoia festers and you can almost hear the bray of royal trumpets as the period springs to life. It's a bloody irresistible read."--People Praise for The King's Curse "Infuses vitality into an oft-forgotten player in the aftermath of the War of the Roses--Margaret Poole, heiress to the defeated Plantagenet clan."--Closer Praise for Philippa Gregory: "The queen of royal fiction."--USA Today "The White Princess features one of the more intriguing theories about the possible fate of the princes."--The Washington Post "This rich tapestry brings to vivid life the court of Henry and Elizabeth. Meticulously drawn characters with a seamless blending of historical fact and fiction combine in a page-turning epic of a story. Tudor-fiction fans can never get enough, and they will snap this one up."--Library Journal (starred review) "An illuminating portrait. . . Gregory moves confidently through a tangle of intrigue, revenge, and tyranny toward a shocking betrayal."--Publishers Weekly "Gregory manages to keep us in suspense as to what will befall her characters....Under [her] spell, we keep hoping history won't repeat itself."--Kirkus Reviews "Nobody does dynastic history like Gregory."--Booklist "[A] gripping and detailed chronicle, with plenty of court intrigue and politics to spice up the action . . . . Highly recommended." --Library Journal (starred review) "Margaret's story is shocking, deeply moving and offers an alternative view on a much-told tale. Gregory is on form here; her depiction of Henry VIII's transformation from indulged golden boy to sinister tyrant is perfectly pitched and seems more horrific still when we are made intimate witnesses to the devastation of Margaret's family. . . . I defy anyone to remain dry-eyed as the story reaches its tragic denouement."--The Sunday Express (UK) "Full of vivid details and fraught with the constant tension of a court run by a madman, this novel will appeal most to historical fiction readers and those who enjoyed Wolf Hall. . . . Gregory beautifully builds the suspense."--Library Journal (starred review) "Who's ever heard of Kateryn Parr? Henry VIII's sixth wife was smart, independent--and managed to outlive him. In historical-fiction-queen Gregory's latest, she's unforgettable."--People Magazine "Gregory does her usual excellent job of ratcheting up the intrigue and suspense as another intelligent and strong-willed heroine fights for her life and her legacy."--Booklist
