Overview

My Lady Viper by E. Knight

When Anne Boleyn falls to the executioner’s ax on a cold spring morning in 1536, Anne Seymour knows her family faces peril. As alliances shift and conspiracies multiply, the Seymours plot to establish their place in the treacherous court of King Henry VIII, where a courtier’s fate is decided by the whims of a hot-tempered and fickle monarch.

Lady Anne’s own sister-in-law, Jane Seymour, soon takes Anne Boleyn’s place as queen. But if Jane cannot give King Henry a son, history portends that she, too, will be executed or set aside—and her family with her. In desperation, Lady Anne throws herself into the intoxicating intrigue of the Tudor court, determined to ensure the success of the new queen’s marriage and the elevation of the Seymour family to a more powerful position. Soon her machinations earn her a reputation as a viper in a den of rabbits. In a game of betrayal and favor, will her family’s rise be worth the loss of her soul?

This was my first book by this author and I enjoyed it as I can never get enough of Tudor books. I enjoyed reading about the Seymour family and another Anne in Tudor history. The author did a very good job in my opinion with the development of the characters and they just see to jump off the page at you. I think she also did very good with the setting so she made feel as if you were right there in Henry's court. Another thing I enjoyed was the telling of yet another love triangle from the Tudor court. Anne was known as a vicious woman and after reading her story here you will understand why while at the same time getting you to understand her side. Anne was a very strong woman to survive being at court. I will be looking forward to book two in this series. I recommend this book to fans of historical fiction.

I have been fascinated with all things Tudor for many years. I was beyond excited to obtain a copy of My Lady Viper from E. Knight, as it takes place in the court of Henry VIII. By the end of the very first chapter, I was already knees-deep in the intrigues of court. Many of the power-players had been mentioned and the battle lines drawn. I was eager to find out what would happen next. As the book went on, more layers of plots and secrets showed themselves. Anne was in the middle of it all, sometimes dodging and weaving, and sometimes plucking the puppetmaster strings. The book was hard to put down as the plot got thicker and thicker around her. I was on the edge of my seat from chapter to chapter. The constant secrets and hidden alliances had the story making twist and turn after twist and turn. It was truly a fabulous read. I am very much looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Anne Seymour was portrayed as a very hated lady at King Henry the Eight’s court. But she wasn’t as bad as they made her out to be. But she did have reasons for how she was like her mother allowing a high ranking noble of court rape Anne her mother hoped the man would do the right thing and marry her daughter. Instead Edward stepped in and married Anne But not only from kindness but he knew Anne was smart and would be a loyal ally and wife. Anne had multiple alliances as well as divided loyalties. Anne interacted with all of King Henry the eighth’s queens and Henry himself. She was totally immersed in life at the court but had to be careful of everything she said or did or she could be put to death also. Anne ended up becoming a lady in waiting To Jane Seymour she was Edward’s younger sister. Jane was King Henry’s third queen. But she also helped Jane with becoming a wife as well as a queen. Especially since she pushed Jane into King Henry’s path. This book was very good . what a woman Anne must have been to know she was hated but still managed to be a spy, a diplomat, a wife who was often alone as her husband was off doing the king's bidding. and a powerful woman. i have to say the way this was written you almost felt like you were there with Anne and feel her pain, her joy, her failures, and triumphs. Anne did what she had to do to survive. Remember she did end up as a Duchess, she was doing something right. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

I can't say how much I truely enjoyed this read! While the author does take several creative liberties, he covers each as best as possible and explains the changes. I found the characters evolved through the book and kept me wanting more. I'm looking forward to his next Tudor Court Stories.

This is a different view of King Henry the eighth, showing his humane and loving side. Also very informative of the intrigues of getting into power with the king and also losing it and the lengths people were willing to go to gain and maintain that power.

The main character Anne is at times a hateful person. She was also a back stabbing and conniving hypocrite. Sometimes I understood why she did the things she did and at other times I thought she went too far. Overall, the story is fast paced and well written. This was a good historical fiction book and the first one I've read by this author. I wouldn't mind reading more by this author.
