Publisher's Summary

England, 1422: Owen Tudor, a Welsh servant, waits in Windsor Castle to meet his new mistress, the beautiful and lonely Queen Catherine of Valois, widow of the warrior king, Henry V. Her infant son is crowned king of England and France, and while the country simmers on the brink of civil war, Owen becomes her protector. They fall in love, risking Owen's life and Queen Catherine's reputation, but how do they found the dynasty that changes British history - the Tudors?

Needs More Emotion

I enjoyed the historic aspect of the book. However, the narrator's delivery invoked very little emotion, and did not bring the characters to life. A less refined, more impassioned narrator could have greatly enhanced the listening experience.

Love this stuff.

But it had some inaccuracies that didn't make sense. It wasn't enough to make me stop listening because it was a good listen. I just don't understand the point of killing off his daughter Margaret as a newborn. It's nowhere near as shameful as Showtime's The Tudors mishmashing Margaret and Mary into one person-and I didn't stop watching-but still. Ah well. There's not much out there that focuses on Owen and Jasper, so, for that, I'm grateful to Mr. Riches.

Great story, poor narrator

I am a major history buff and I especially love the Tudor stories so I was really looking forward to this trilogy. The story itself is good and definitely worth a read if like me you enjoy this type of history. I didn't know much about Owen Tudor before so it was very interesting. What let this audiobook down was the narrator, who I unfortunately have to say was extremely poor. All voices and characters sounded the same, he was extremely robotic and wasn't 'acting' the story as well as I'm used to other narrators doing. I felt like it was just any old person reading the book to me with no real experience of being a narrator. I am definitely going to read the next book in the trilogy Jasper and I am relieved it is narrated by somebody different, hopefully they will be a lot better.

Not recommended

Dreadful narrator .... had to stop after a few chapters. Too slow and deliberate with wooden delivery - in particular of the dialogues.

very easy to listen to

Interesting different view of the start of the Tudor family and the War of the Roses.
