From the Publisher"This one I found fascinating. I must admit to not knowing all that much about Philip of Spain and this book opened my eyes a bit to a man who was an important figure in Tudor times. " - Broken Teepee
"Both characters are very likable and quickly I cared about them and wanted to know what happened in their lives. We meet quite a few characters and learn their places in Alice and Clayton's lives, some you love and others are those we love to hate! I look forward to reading more of Erica James' books in the near future.
" - Under The Boardwalk
This was a grand read with a brilliant tone that I highly recommend.
It's a good stand alone book but reading it in series might be worthwhile. Sourcebooks does such a great job of bringing back some of "the best of the best". This is another highly recommended read for all historical history fans - especially those of us who love Elizabeth I .
This series is very well researched and even though it was written in the early 50's, it still has a modern feel to it. Any historical buff will enjoy this series.
I really enjoyed this book as well as the other two books in the trilogy. I recommend this one to fans of Irwin and historical fiction lovers. If you are interested in King Henry the VIII and his family this a great book for you. It is filled with great historical detail and it's easy to see why Irwin is regarded as one of the great writers of historical fiction. It is not a long book or difficult to read. It can easily be read as a stand alone or as part of the Young Bess series.
fans of the era will appreciate the well written insightful look at three rivals competing for power at a time of intense turmoil.
I highly recommend not only Elizabeth and the Prince of Spain, but also the previous two books in the Elizabeth I trilogy, Young Bess and Elizabeth, Captive Princess.
