Sandra Worth takes us into the mind and heart of Richard III, that much maligned king of Shakespearean fame, and gives us an entirely different interpretation of his character than has been traditional for hundreds of years. Beyond that, she writes a great story. I was pulled along by her beautiful prose every step of the way, and by the last part of the book, which depicts the rather sad end to which Richard comes, I felt as if I had truly lived through those terrible times with him. This is an engrossing listen, particularly after hearing or reading the first two books of this trilogy-- in fact, as proof of their addictive power, I admit that I listened to all three volumes in three days. Don't miss a single one !! Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys truly great historical fiction.

I'm not ignorant to the fact that most authors take artistic liberties when it comes to these types of books. Rather than picking apart an author for historical errors or biased opinions, I judge on whether I enjoy the story and the writing style. The Woodvilles and Tudors are completely vilified with no redeeming qualities, but I chose to ignore it. I imagine that's exactly how the Yorks felt about them. I liked the narrator, the story and the style of writing. I would read more books from this author.
