Add to GR Button

I have served three queens in my life. One was my sister, one was my savior, and one my bitterest enemy. Knowing she was seen as a threat to the Queen she served, Lady Katherine Grey, legitimate heir to the throne, longs only for the comfort of a loving marriage and a quiet life far from the intrigue of the Tudor court. After seeing her sister become the pawn of their parents and others seeking royal power and then lose their lives for it, she is determined to avoid the vicious struggles over power and religion that dominate Queen Elizabeth’s court. Until she finds love—then Kat is willing to risk it all, even life in prison.

My Review:

“Prisoner of the Queen” by E. Knight was a fantastic read. One of those books you curl up with, and find you can’t put it down until you finish. I liked how the novel was written in first person. It really gives the reader a great idea of what Katherine really might have been going through—you can picture her having these exact thoughts during this time. I felt like I really was able to get to know Katherine. She’s definitely a relatable character, and as a reader you just want to protect her and for things to turn out for the best. Katherine Grey is definitely brought back to life in this novel. I like that the focus was mainly on her life outside of prison.

E. Knight’s writing transports me to another time and place—I can picture everything and I become completely lost within the pages of this novel. The author has a great gift for storytelling that makes it hard to put any of her books down. This novel is another hit in a long list of great novels by E. Knight. She definitely has a way of pulling the reader into a novel, and letting them get lost in the smooth writing and great research.

I would recommend this novel to any lover of historical fiction. The research is great, and the writing style is fantastic. It definitely is a great read.

I give “Prisoner of the Queen” a FIVE out of FIVE stars.
