A great series, and a fine narrator.

Even if you've been Tudored to death this is a good series. There are so few books about the Tudors that I will read, having hit saturation point years ago. But this series caught and has held my attention. Ms. Bilyeau is a fine writer and knows her time period. The only problem and this is a bit nit picky, is the use of Henry VIII, every time anyone speaks of the king, They don't say "the King, or Henry", it is HENRY VIII, it started to really bother me. But the story and characters are so well written I could over look it.

As for Nicola Barber's performance she does a great job and made it a pleasure to listen to.

Disappointing Novel...

Of intrigue at the court of Henry VIII. Seriously? More well known history than well conceived mystery. Had trouble listening until the yawn ending.
