I was given a copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley, in return for an honest review.

The Boleyn Trilogy has just become one of my favorite alternate history books that I have ever read.

Just as we did in the previous two books, the readers were taken through historical and alternately historical events during Tudor England. Besides the main four characters, we also encountered Mary Tudor, Jane Gray and Robert Dudley; and saw how their lives might have played out had Anne Boleyn's son actually lived and ruled England. As with most series that follow children into adulthood, this book was much darker and more emotional than the previous two. We saw into the depths of the minds and hearts of William, Dom, Minuette and Elizabeth. And at many times, it was not the light-hearted fluff (not the word that I want, but I can't seem to think of another more suited) that we saw in the earlier books. Though I was a little surprised and saddened by some of the events that took place in this final book, I don't know that the story could have been written any other way, and still been believable.

Overall, I am happy to report that I found The Boleyn Reckoning to be very believable as an alternate reality historical novel, and while it wasn't my favorite book of the series, it was what I would believe to be the most realistic. A highly recommended series for fans of Tudor England!
