May, 1536. The Queen is dead. Long live the Queen.
When Anne Boleyn falls to the executioner’s axe on a cold spring morning, yet another Anne vows she will survive in the snakepit court of Henry VIII. But at what cost?
Lady Anne Seymour knows her family hangs by a thread. If her sister-in-law Jane Seymour cannot give the King a son, she will be executed or set aside, and her family with her. Anne throws herself into the deadly and intoxicating intrigue of the Tudor court, determined at any price to see the new queen’s marriage a success and the Seymour family elevated to supreme power. But Anne’s machinations will earn her a reputation as a viper, and she must decide if her family’s rise is worth the loss of her own soul…
Book Two, Prisoner of the Queen, will be released later in 2014.

Praise for My Lady Viper

“E. Knight breathes new life and new scandal into the Tudors. This is an engrossing historical fiction tale that readers will love!” ~ Meg Wessel, A Bookish Affair

“A brilliant illustration of a capricious monarch and the nest of serpents that surrounded him, My Lady Viper is an absolute must. Intricately detailed, cleverly constructed and utterly irresistible.” ~ Erin, Flashlight Commentary

“Author E. Knight proves that though there are a plethora of Tudor novels out there a writer can still create a fresh and unique view of one of history’s most treacherous courts, that of England’s King Henry VIII. Schemes and scandalous trysts abound in ‘My Lady Viper’, making for a very captivating read. Racy and deliciously sensual, once started I was hard pressed to put the book down. I eagerly await the next installment in E. Knight’s stand-out Tales of the Tudor Courts series!” ~ Amy Bruno, Passages to the Past

My Review

I was already a huge fan of E. Knight’s novels, and “My Lady Viper” just reaffirmed why I love her books! This novel was absolutely fantastic, and I honestly had difficulty putting it down in order to go to sleep at night. I love pretty much any novel about Tudor England, but somehow E. Knight was able to make this novel about that time period really stand out for me. As usual Knight’s writing style is superb, and the descriptions so realistic you feel as though you’re right there with the characters. The characters were also amazing. I loved how she portrayed Lady Anne Beauchamp. In past novels that I have read, where Lady Anne was a character, she was always portrayed as power hungry and just not a nice person. Knight really lets you get to know Lady Anne, and you can’t help but care about her and really want the best for her. E. Knight brought the main character Lady Anne to life for me in this novel in a way few authors have ever been able to do with their characters for me. I truly cared about what happened to Lady Anne, and she became so real to me in this book. I have read so many novels about Tudor England, but none of them have ever brought the people of that time to life for me like this novel did. The intrigue and the twists in this novel had me on the edge of my seat, wondering what was going to happen next.

Any lover of historical fiction, especially the Tudor Era, is going to love this novel. It’s been years since I have read a Tudor novel that even compared to this one! I cannot wait to read her next installment in “Tales from the Tudor Court’, because if it’s anything like this one than it will be a definite hit!

I give this novel a solid FIVE out of FIVE stars, and I would give it more if possible!
