“Full of intrigue and fantastical plots that are for the most part true, even those skeptical of the Historical Fiction Genre will love The King's Daughter.”
From Goodreads: The court of James I is a volatile place, with factions led by warring cousins Robert Cecil and Francis Bacon. Europe is seething with conflict between Protestants and Catholics. James sees himself as a grand peacemaker—and what better way to make his mark than to use his children in marriage negotiations?
I was in love with this novel from Christie Dickason from the first sentence. I hadn’t read much historical fiction set in James I’s time period and this book was a great introduction to the peacemaker king.
Dickason’s voice is phenomenal and the book reads fast and keeps the readers interest. The pace is not frenetic or slow the writer found a great way to condense the history while still giving you plenty of juicy details to go on. The book was very well researched, the characters were intriguing and the fictional Tallie is a fantastic addition to this story.
It is rare that the emotions in a book are so deftly written. The voices used to express the emotions in this book are expertly used and you feel more than you read when browsing this novel. I really enjoyed learning more about Elizabeth as a princess and this is one historical you should not miss! Even those who do not enjoy historical fiction will appreciate Elizabeth’s voice and the fictionalization of events.
