I loved this second in a long series of historical novels placed in northern England near York! It continued the saga of the Morland family from 1501 into the reign of young King Edward after the death of his father, Henry VIII. I love this period of English history so following the Morlands through it was especially enjoyable. I hope the next in the series will continue with Elizabeth I since she is my very favorite of all the English monarchs.
Others have summarized the plot of this novel so I will not repeat their efforts. This is a long book, a little over 21 hours on the audiobook, but I finished listening to it in less than 4 days. Although I do have a life, I found it difficult to take off my earphones and stop this story. I guess it’s a good thing that batteries do need to be recharged occasionally. I was even happy with the ending. I read the preceding book, but this one could stand on it’s own without losing much.
Would you consider the audio edition of Dynasty 2: The Dark Rose to be better than the print version?
This is the first of many books, but I will be listening to the rest!
Who was your favorite character and why?
The matriarch - Eleanor
I was looking forward to part two but the narrator made it sound like a church service. There was very little difference between the voices and what could have been a gripping tale was made at times just boring

If you like historical novels just get the books in this series. Brilliantly narrated and great story.
