Read full description of the books:
I read these books when I was little, so I have a very childish adoration for them. However, reading them now I am irritated with the historical inaccuracies since they help perpetuate the lack of knowledge having to do with history in general. MQoS is a very complex figure given a very anglo personality, when she was notoriously French. She reads like Elizabeth I, who the writer of this book wrote for. Despite that all, I was willing to ignore that since not a lot is know about certain figures prior to their succession to the throne. I gave this book 1 star however when in the Epilogue it stated that Mary Tudor killed thousands of heretics to be burned. This is a flat out lie and anyone who can look up information online could tell you that Mary Tudor did burn people, but it was less that 300 in comparison to THOUSANDS! That was just too much and as someone who wants to major in Tudor History its just not worth it.
