Writing a proper review has always been my struggle, especially when a book has swept me off my feet. And this is one of those cases. It is a difficult review to write and, in my defense, a reader does not simply sum up all the intense emotions and thoughts a brilliant book inflicted and provoked in himself. So please forgive me if you don’t find this review helpful at all.

The Boleyn King easily became one of my favorite debuts & books this year and when I discovered the sequel would also be published in 2013, I think I jumped and rejoiced only for a little. I can’t believe I finished The Boleyn Deceit in one sitting. This girl can only say it’s so addicting, this series would require your undivided attention.

The Boleyn Deceit picks up not long after the The Boleyn King ended. Andersen will throw you back to the glamorous and intriguing court of the Boleyn King instantly. I am so deeply submerged into the Tudor Era. I feel the magic of Laura Andersen’s words. The Boleyn Deceit unfolds in such a riveting fashion that it ensures all of the readers undivided attention. The plot is so gripping, thoroughly well written, I enjoyed every twist and turn of the story. It is everything I hoped for. I devoured it entirely. I couldn’t help myself but to finish it with one sitting.

The characters are likable and their continuing development is plausible. The romance will literally tear your heart apart and fill you with emotions. There are a lot of times I caught myself holding my breath. I found myself immensely enjoying everything about this book. The Boleyn Series managed to reduce me to tears once again. I am so engrossed with the story, it literally blew me away. It is such a pleasure to read an alternate historical fiction that holds so much love, sorrow, and depth.

The Boleyn Deceit intensified my hunger for this series even more. All I know is I wouldn’t want this series to end. The Boleyn Deceit is a terrific sequel, that will have you on the edge of your seat. Fans wont be disappointed.

Deborah This is the most extreme fangirling I've seen since Game of Thrones. I feel ya, bro. I feel ya.
