From the PublisherPraise for The Royal Stuarts
"Not just for history lovers but anyone hooked on Showtime's The Tudors or, currently, The Borgias...An enjoyable, often witty read, which will make for a nice introduction to the Stuarts and a fun refresher for aficionados."
"A well-fashioned history of the remarkable Scottish monarchs... A palatable history lesson that might help untangle the royal lineage web for American readers."
"Smart...A delightfully opinionated but nuanced and action-packed history."
"It drips with blood, cruelty and tears... Evocative, visceral - haunting."
—Daily Telegraph (UK)
"Lively and jauntily paced history."
— Sunday Times (UK)
"Stirring and eloquent account of the Stuarts."
—Scotland on Sunday
"A highly readable and impressively panoramic history."
"[Massie] combines dry wit and fondness for well-constructed sentences with a novelist's sense of the enlivening detail."
— Daily Express (UK)
"A pleasure to read and psychologically compelling."
—The Spectator (UK)
