Book Overview

Dissent rises in the kingdom of King Henry VIII of England. The king's ongoing dispute with the papacy over a desire for annulment is about to incite the Reformation, and his next step is to appoint a new archbishop in order to obtain his long-awaited marriage to Anne Boleyn. All crests that once bore the initials "H & K" are promptly replaced with an intertwining "H & A," the first of many significant changes to come. The birth of the new royal couple's...

A great, provocative read

If you love the Showtime show The Tudors, then you should read this book. It is a historical fiction novel based on (and sometimes is word for word) from the second season of The Tudors. It is provocative and captivating, just like the show. It's a quick read so it's a great beach read or for when you want to escape for awhile. If you are not a fan of the show or have never seen it but are interested in historical fiction or novels based off of shows or movies, then you will probably like this book. This is a pretty good book, nothing too deep or thought provoking but it is interesting and does give you a sense of the downfall of one of the most infamous woman in English history.


This book is season 2 of The Tudors almost EXACTLY, and is a MUST for any fans of the show!!

Terrific Tale!

King Takes Queen, the novelization of the second season of the Tudors, has everything you'd find in the castles, gardens, streets, and Tower of King Henry VIII's London - intrigue, lust, love, betrayal, murder, adventure, fear, hope, torture, greed, and more. This book, superbly penned by Elizabeth Massie, follows Hirst's scripts closely and not only shows the reader the tumultuous times in which Anne Boleyn rose to become Queen of England, but lets the reader feel them as well. The emotion in this novel is rich, putting readers in the shoes and skins of those who lived - and died - under the rule of one of England's most powerful monarchs. Highly recommended, even for those who have never seen the show.
