Reviews

"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
"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
"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)
"[A] gripping and detailed chronicle, with plenty of court intrigue and politics to spice up the action . . . . Highly recommended." --Library Journal (starred review)
"Nobody does dynastic history like Gregory."--Booklist
"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
"An illuminating portrait. . . Gregory moves confidently through a tangle of intrigue, revenge, and tyranny toward a shocking betrayal."--Publishers Weekly
"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)
"The White Princess features one of the more intriguing theories about the possible fate of the princes."--The Washington Post

Praise for The White Princess

"Bring on the blood, sex and tears! . . . You name it, it's all here."--USA Today



Praise for Philippa Gregory:

"The queen of royal fiction."--USA Today


"Philippa Gregory's historical fiction about the Tudors, including the best-seller The Other Boleyn Girl, has earned her a devoted following, and Three Sisters, Three Queens is sure to bring her more."--St. Paul Pioneer Press
"The ultimate job in centuries past was ruling. Historical fiction maven Gregory (The Other Boleyn Girl) takes on three women, all part of King Henry VIII's world, who serve as queens of England, France, and Scotland."--Library Journal
"By the time I had read the first few pages of Three Sisters, Three Queens, I knew that once again Gregory had grabbed me by the collar and simply wouldn't let me go. . . . Although the urge to race through the novel to see what happens next is strong, smart readers will read slowly and savor the chance to travel back in time and live in an era that can now be found only in the pages of such a magical book."--Book Reporter
Praise for The Taming of the Queen

"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


Praise for The King's Curse

"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
