Sharon Kay Penman is my favorite historical fiction author. As one reviewer said, her novel is "rich in detail and research." She has a mastferful approach to making a story out of historical fact that keeps you turning the pages and looking for more!

This book is about King Richard III.

This is not only the best historical fiction novel I've read, but it's also one the best books I've ever read! Penman completely flips the "standard" character of Richard III that many of us are familiar with. If you're a fan of historical fiction (and even if you're not), please give this book a shot. You won't regret it!

This was an excellent historical novel about King Richard III from childhood to his death. Filled with treachery and treason, love and passion, this 900 page book was one I could not put down.
