As the book's author I am partial to it of course But those of you who love traveling back in time who love romance who are interested in English history who appreciate careful research into setting manners and morals who are willing to hear some poetry and some philosophy and who are fascinated by 'magic' as much of herbal science and physics and astronomy was then understood should find my novel suited to your taste Matilda Empress has been described as 'Game of Thrones' meets 'Downton Abbey' and by that the critic means that the story is set in a dark time of violence but still centers around the domestic concerns of a high born family as they love and betray one another The twelfth century indeed was a pivotal time when visceral struggles for power could not stop the cultural renaissance underway as the idea of 'romance' and romantic literature flowered alongside great awakenings in science and medicine flowing west during the crusades to the east Please do give my book a try if the confluence of passion and politics of love and war meets your criteria for a Good Read

Matilda EmpressThe English throne could finally halt the bloody endless warIn the vein of Philippa Gregory's The Other Boleyn Girl Matilda Empress illuminates the real history of the early English monarchs while exploring what is at stake when a strong woman at the center of great upheaval refuses to play by the rules laid out for he. The attention to detail in this novel is amazing I felt like I smelled her world Even being pretty familiar with English history and the fights over ascension to the throne I knew very little about Matilda's story and this novel brought it to light with keen insight into her world Throw in a sordid love story and you have the makings of great historical fiction If you like historical fiction you should add this to your list
