Skip this!! Read Kingmaker's Daughter instead!

I thought the book had good points, but it was very disappointing. I have read many books on the subject of Richard III, nonfiction and fiction. This is my least favorite. The total vilification and spurious attacks on the Woodville family was shocking.

This is a fairytale version of the story. It's not good historical fiction!! In fact, I would recommend reading books 1 and 4 of Phillipa Gregory's Cousins War series before touching this. I'm not a fan of PG, but her work on Ann Neville and Elizabeth Woodville is far more touching and well-researched than this book.

Read Kingmakers Daughter, then The White Queen. Anne Easter Smith's story of Richard III is also very good and available on Audible. Also The Seventh Son.

Great narrator!!

- Benoibe "audio addict! Mostly interested in history and some historical fiction. Will Durant is my all time favorite. Loving the Great Courses too."


I read the three volumes in this trilogy (or rather, listened to them) back to back and I am writing this little review after finishing all three-- and that's because this trilogy is a "could not put down" listen. I have read many historical novels set in the period of the so-called "Cousins' Wars" (AKA the Wars of the Roses) and before I began this trilogy I really doubted that anyone, and perhaps particularly a writer of historical fiction, could shed any new light on the events of this time. But Sandra Worth succeeds there, and also weaves a spell around these historical characters which makes all seem new again. As a passionate lover of historical fiction, I can recommend this entire trilogy as a great read !
