Imprisonment. Betrayal. Lost love. Murder. What more must a princess endure?

Elizabeth Tudor's teenage and young adult years during the turbulent reigns of Edward and then Mary Tudor are hardly those of a fairy-tale princess. Her mother has been beheaded by Elizabeth's own father, Henry VIII; her jealous half sister, Mary, has her locked away in the Tower of London; and her only love interest betrays her in his own quest for the throne.

Told in the voice of the young Elizabeth and ending when she is crowned queen, this second novel in the exciting series explores the relationship between two sisters who became mortal enemies. Carolyn Meyer has written an intriguing historical tale that reveals the deep-seated rivalry between a determined girl who became one of England's most powerful monarchs and the sister who tried everything to stop her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read I has a mild obsession with the Tudor era as a young teen and I loved this book! It helps the reader imagine what it would have been like to be Elizabeth I, a young girl who was put into adult roles from a young age. Definitely would recommend to young history lovers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous, Intriguing and very Exciting! King Henry VIII's second wife- Anne Boleyn- gave birth to a charming young girl named Elizabeth. Who was yet to became a fabulous monarch of England. But let's not get ahead of ourselves, shall we? Princess Elizabeth could have not had a more fabulous time... when suddenly, her father, King Henry VIII, dies. She finds something suspicious about having been told this depressing news 3 days after his death. "Descisions had to be made" is all she's told. Then her little half-brother, Edward VI, gets crowned King. Then Queen Catherine Parr, King Henry's 6th and last wife, gets into an affair with Tom Seymour, King Edward's uncle and Elizabeth is quite surprised. And right then and there, Edward dies and Mary, Elizabeth's half-sister, becomes queen. Throughout the entire story young Princess Elizabeth has been nearly taken to death by sickness, locked into towers by her own sister, Queen Maria Regina (Queen Mary) and almost got sentenced to death. Read to the very last page and you will find that reading the rest of the series brings out the whole truth of the 4 main Tudor women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An utterly amazing read. Carolyn Meyer does a fantastic job of telling the tale of Elizabeth Tudor's life from about age 13-25. It is a fairly challenging read for anyone below the age of 13 and is a great way to learn about Elizabeth's life when she was a teenager and young adult. It is one of my most- loved books and I reccomend it to anyone who is interested in the history of the Tudors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW This book shows the horrible life in which Queen Elizabeth had to go through. It starts at the death of her father and goes until she is pronounced queen. She never really was truly treated like a princess. She was the third daughter of King Henry VIII and also declared a bastard. She went through lots of hardships and she survived to rule a country. I would recomend this book to any one who needed a good read.
