What an amazing story! I hated for it to end. The only thing I didn't care for was the current 'scribe' scenes. I totally loved the scenes from the past and Anne Boleyn's story. It amazes me when I think about how incredibly fickle people were in those days, and how ignorant. For Henry to kill or cast off each wife that wouldn't bear him a son, oy! How sad! I felt sorry for the women because it wasn't their fault. What difficult times they lived in. I found the accounts of the persecution fascinating and also hard to stomach because the story was so well-written I felt like I was there. To think that reading the Bible was enough to get you brutally totured to the point of death... I shudder when I ponder it too long. So if you love fiction that transports you back in time with realism and cultural flair, you will want to read In the Shadow of Lions. Awesome and compelling storytelling.

Good story. Very enjoyable although I got lost through it. Hard to folow story lines. It took me a couple of chapters to really understand what was happening.

This book was a nice read but difficult to follow at times. It was confusing in the way she jumped from one character to another, but the story of Anne was good.

Garret gives an interesting and unusual view of Anne Boleyn. It allows the readers to see each of the characters in a unique way. My only problem with this book, along with Chosen, is finding where Garret draws the line between historical fact and her imagination.

This was a compelling story, and the urging of the reader to get into the Word of God has set me to reading the Bible with more purpose.
