1558. Elizabeth, the last of King Henry's heirs, is a traitor's daughter. Now, she is England's last hope.

After five gruesome years, Bloody Mary is on her deathbed. She lives her sister Elizabeth a daunting inheritance: the throne of England.

The bishops will not anoint a heretic. A foreign queen plots for the throne. And Englishmen and foreigners alike are starting to notice Elizabeth's growing infatuation for a man who spent his youth in a traitor's cell. And the people demand a prince to fill the empty throne by Elizabeth's side: a husband that may wrest away every morsel of her power.

Tides are turning in England, and no one is safe. Not even the queen.

This has so much emotion! I've read quite a few stories about the Mary-Elizabeth rivalry, but this really carries the emotional impact.

I'm so used to thinking of Elizabeth as the terrifying queen in Reign but now I'm happy to read a story where she's not the bad guy

I've only read the first two pages, but you appear to understand how  terrifying it must have been to be Anne Bolyne's daughter! Tash Jupp :-)
