**I wish to thank KENSINGTON PUBLISHING for providing me with this book, THE TUDOR THRONE, as a part of the member giveaway on LIBRARYTHING.com**

For a HISTORICAL FICTION, absolutely amazing and very well written. Each chapter traverses between the thoughts and lives from Mary to Elizabeth, Elizabeth to Mary.

EXPERIENCE:
The lives and hardships of being the daughters of King Henry VIII;
Love shared between half sisters that eventually turns into distrust.
Marriage to Prince Phillip of Spain who attempts to send England into ruin.
Finally, the death of one sister and the announcing of the throne to the other.

WILL I GO ON TO READ OTHER BOOKS WRITTEN BY Author BRANDY PURDY?
A definite yes, yes and yes.

WHY NOT A FIVE STAR RATING.
Of 52 chapters, the action did not get really interesting until approx chapter 28. (Just my personal opinion thank you). Keep in mind some chapters were only 2 or 3 pages long.
