    1. This would have been a lot stronger if it had been a 300+ page book. So much potential. Full review to come.

    2. Firstly I would like to thank Net Galley and Endeavour press for the opportunity to read this book. I requested this book because I love the Tudor period, I have also been given an arc of Katheryn, the wanton queen by the same author. This book is a re-release of a book that was originally released in the 80’s. I would have thought considering that because of it being a re-release that it has thoroughly edited; however there is a lot of spaces between words missed making it at times hard to re [...]

    3. This was an interesting and quick read. I read it in the space of a day. A good shortened version of Henry's reign and the wives, livres and the king himself. Personally he sounds am abhorrent man, but he was a product of his time.Interesting and catchy, it kept me with it the whole way through. There are spelling errors (Ann Bullpen) as if the author used voice to text to do some of her typing or her spell check was off, but I would still recommend.*I'd like to thank the author/publisher/Netgal [...]

    4. This book by Maureen Peters was originally written in 1972 and recently republished. This book follows Henry VIII from during his first marriage to Katherine of Aragon to his deathbed. My first impression of this book is that I had read all of this before and I didn’t necessarily learn anything new in the process. However, I’m glad I thought about this book for a few days before I wrote my review. I didn’t realize the original publishing date until after I read this book, so I feel like a [...]

    5. I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.The story of Henry VIII and his journey through marriage after marriage after marriage is one that has been told many times from many perspectives. This version promises to be from Henry's perspective, which I hoped would provide somewhat of a new angle. While the book has an interesting flavor to it thanks to the author's talent at spinning beautiful sentences, it offers nothing new. Still, we get a front-and-center seat [...]

    6. There has been a so much written about Henry the eight, that I wondered how this book would be different. Well the story doesn't change - no happy endings - but it certainly gave another prospective of it. The story starts at the end - Henry's deathbed - he revising the road his life has travelled. I enjoyed it, it does not romanticise or makes it over violent. It shows Henry as a man who is sometimes likeable, sometimes not, a man who is clever, yet easily used. His wives stories are dealt with [...]

    7. I received this is as an ARC from NetGalley. Maureen Peters writes good simple historical fiction. Her books are great for beginners and they hit the major topics of the lives of the subjects but there is not much depth to the story and it is hard to get too involved in the story. It is great for a quick easy read but not something I would recommend unless that is exactly what someone is looking for.

    8. I enjoyed this book a lot. It's a fast paced story that covers all six of Henry the Eigth's wives. I think this book would be a good book for anyone to start getting interested in the time period. I liked the book, but it's based on a lot of unproven historical legends. It is still a good book, just remember it's historical fiction, not history.

    9. Peters does a fine job of compressing the rich and vibrant story of the King and his six wives into an entertaining and very readable book. The story is best suited for those who are reading about Henry VIII for the first time, because it focuses on the crux of the story. Peters’ gently flowing prose makes the book a joy to read.

    10. We all know the Story of Henry VIII and in Mad quest for an heir , he became a little mad? or do we ?? Maureen Peters expertly weaves fact and fiction in this fantastic sale. as told by Henry himself, is he alone? does he actually love any of his wives or does he feel duty bound to his country?? This dark and twisty novel does not disappoint

    11. I read it to get some more information of the 6 wives of Henry VIII. It did supply that - but was not as fun to read as 'The Other Boleyn Girl'

    12. Short history of all of Henry's 6 wives. Leaves a lot of questions unanswered but it is an easy read. I read it on holiday and really enjoyed it.

    13. Henry VIII is an excellent example of why kings can be so bad.
