From early on in the book it was clear that there was little to keep me reading There was no plot driver or anything that made me want to finish the book Obviously Mary I was going to die and Elizabeth succeed her as ueen I should have been eager to see this happen hungry to watch the characters thrust into this political hornets’ nest but I just didn’t care The author failed to create the feeling of sympathy for her characters Take Katherine for her example her sister has died so she is upset but this doesn’t seem to last long She is concerned with her love interest which results in even less emotional connectedness The three protagonists of the book are very different people They have their own separate point of views and very far apart stories That being said each point of view sounded the same Had I not read the character name at the beginning of each chaptersection I wouldn’t have been able to tell the difference ignoring plot content of course The voices of the characters within the narrative are just too similar and undistinguishable from one another I was very disappointed with this book it felt like it was missing a key element or ingredient My initial expectations fell very flat This is an author whose work I will not read againI won this book as a giveaway here on goodreads

I was awarded this book by NetGalley the morning I got the approval email it had been archived and I could not download it I sent an email to the publisher they allowed me access I am SO happy they did I enjoyed this book As much as I have read about E1 and family I only knew a little of Lady Jane Grey and nothing of her sisters Katherine and Mary It wasn't until the chapter named Kitty Mouse that I thought about their nicknames that way I liked thatI really loved the character that Mary was given there was not much about her written in history Elizabeth Fremantle fleshed out the people in this book so very well I would most certainly read another of her books Well written interesting in a period historical book many characters to love There was not as much about ueens Mary or Elizabeth but this was not mainly about them of their treatment of their cousins and how lives can be ruined by the blood relations we have

Find this and other reviews at was eager to get my hands on Elizabeth Fremantle's Sisters of Treason I read The ueen's Rivals last year and while I enjoyed Purdy's take on the Grey sisters the book lacked the gravitas I crave I needed something I could sink my teeth into something with a little meat on the bone if you get my meaning Fremantle caught my attention with ueen Gambit but I'll be honest I think her sopho release stronger than its predecessor There is an urgency and weight to the story an imperativeness to the decisions Catherine and Mary must make a tension that captivates even those who know the history of the younger Grey girls and anticipate where the narrative is headedTone is not the only thing that stands out when reflecting on this piece Jane the traditional headliner has a very interesting role in the narrative She appears briefly early on but her memory is a character in and of itself guiding her sisters from beyond the grave The same originality is echoed in Fremantle's interpretations of Elizabeth I and Frances Grey These characters were familiar to me going in but Fremantle's unconventional approach to their personalities and roles resulted in something both uniue and memorable Fremantle adds dimension to the story through Levina Teerlinc A minor historical footnote Levina is an artisan A court painter who exists in the privileged circles of the elite without belonging to it Her voice balances those of her social superiors but really liked how her story arc paralleled and played against those of Catherine and Mary Richly detailed and vividly dramatic Sisters of Treason is a genuinely first rate historical Engaging provocative and damn near impossible to put down
