The Last Tudor (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels, #14)
The latest novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory features one of the most famous girls in history, Lady Jane Grey, and her two sisters, each of whom dared to defy her queen.
Jane Grey was queen of England for nine days, dying on the scaffold for her faith. But few people know about her two sisters, cousins to Elizabeth I who also faced imprisonment and death sentences for treason.
Katherine Grey was the beauty of the family who earned the lifelong hatred of her cousin Elizabeth I when she married for love. Mary Grey was an extraordinary little person known as a dwarf in Tudor times, who defied convention to marry the tallest man at court in her own secret love match.
The fascinating story of three idiosyncratic Tudor girls and their challenges to the most powerful Tudor woman of all is the subject of the next novel from the author who defines what it means to be a writer of historical fiction (RT Book Reviews)."

    "The devil protects his own."A Game of Thrones, indeed. There is more vanity, spite, jealousy, arrogance, murder and mayhem in this crooked line of succession to the Tudor dynasty that would, undoubtedly, make Ned Stark's head spin. Most certainly, winter has come.Adding to this evil b...

    Philippa Gregory’s latest book is as good as a play… if you like fantastical parodies. If you want to read a well-written novel about the Greys, I recommend Susan Higginbotham’s Her Highness, the Traitor instead.Here we are again. Another year, another Philippa Gregory r...

    I don't want to touch this book with a 100-meter pole because of the description. (All below quotes are taken from it.)"Jane Grey was queen of England for nine days, dying on the scaffold for her faith. But few people know about her two sisters, cousins to Elizabeth I who also faced im...

    This is the 15th book by this author that I have read. I have enjoyed this particular series so much. I love this kind of historical fiction. When reading her books, I inevitably have to google these historical characters, to see how the book is going to end. This one was no different....

    I find Philippa Gregory's Tudor novels very hit and miss. A couple I adore but others I don't and sometimes find them hard to finish. Unfortunately, this is one of the latter - largely, I think, because the characters are allowed no freedom to develop. All is rigid. All is black and wh...

    I had decided to overcome my distaste for Philippa Gregory and give this book a shot, since Lady Jane Grey has always been a historical figure of great interest to me. Simply reading the synopsis made me change my mind. "..who earned the lifelong hatred of her cousin Elizabeth I when s...

    This wasn't my favorite of Gregory's novels, but still wildly entertaining. I found the story of the Grey sisters to be really compelling. I already knew about Jane Grey, the nine days queen, and her tragic fate, but the story of her sister Catherine was especially upsetting. So tragic...
