"Wielding magic again in her latest War of the Roses novel ...
Gregory demonstrates the passion and skill that has made her the
queen of English historical fiction....Gregory portrays spirited
women at odds with powerful men, endowing distant historical events
with drama, and figures long dead or invented with real-life flaws
and grand emotions. She makes history ... come alive for readers."
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"The best writers of historical fiction imbue the past with the rich tapestry of life and depth, and Gregory is surely counted among their number. . . .A worthy addition to this fascinating series, once again distinguished by excellent characterization, thorough research, and a deft touch with the written word." -Library Journal
"The suspenseful pace never flags." -Kirkus
"The ethereal magic threaded throughout the story. . . .contrasts nicely with the power politics." -Booklist
"This rip-roarer possesses the same intimate imaginative texture of Gregory's classic The Other Boleyn Girl. . . . It's about love, power and human weakness." --USAToday.com
