My Lady Viper by E. Knight


I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

My Lady Viper by E. Knight
ISBN: 9780990324508
Synopsis: May, 1536. The Queen is dead. Long live the Queen.


When Anne Boleyn falls to the executioner’s axe on a cold spring morning, yet another Anne vows she will survive in the snakepit court of Henry VIII. But at what cost?

Lady Anne Seymour knows her family hangs by a thread. If her sister-in-law Jane Seymour cannot give the King a son, she will be executed or set aside, and her family with her. Anne throws herself into the deadly and intoxicating intrigue of the Tudor court, determined at any price to see the new queen’s marriage a success and the Seymour family elevated to supreme power. But Anne’s machinations will earn her a reputation as a viper, and she must decide if her family’s rise is worth the loss of her own soul…

Book Two, Prisoner of the Queen, will be released later in 2014.

My review: 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. 

Praise for My Lady Viper

“E. Knight breathes new life and new scandal into the Tudors. This is an engrossing historical fiction tale that readers will love!” ~ Meg Wessel, A Bookish Affair
“A brilliant illustration of a capricious monarch and the nest of serpents that surrounded him, My Lady Viper is an absolute must. Intricately detailed, cleverly constructed and utterly irresistible.” ~ Erin, Flashlight Commentary
“Author E. Knight proves that though there are a plethora of Tudor novels out there a writer can still create a fresh and unique view of one of history’s most treacherous courts, that of England’s King Henry VIII. Schemes and scandalous trysts abound in ‘My Lady Viper’, making for a very captivating read. Racy and deliciously sensual, once started I was hard pressed to put the book down. I eagerly await the next installment in E. Knight’s stand-out Tales of the Tudor Courts series!” ~ Amy Bruno, Passages to the Past
