My Lady Jane – Cynthia Hand

My Lady JaneMy Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My Lady Jane is a terrifically enjoyable if inaccurate romp through Tudor history. The authors make the characters come alive in a way that enables them to be like able and relatable. Not everyone is a fan of historical fiction, but I feel that this book makes that genre more accessible.

The book was engaging and I finished it in one sitting. I fell in love with the characters, their world, and how everything developed over the course of the novel. Jane, Edward and G realistically grew and changed as people – from bookish to brave, spoiled to caring, and lascivious to loyal.

Highly recommended to young adult/teen readers who are fans of historical fiction, fantasy, action or romance.

  1. […] While My Lady Jane isn’t exactly historically accurate, I believe that the Horned Serpent which favours scholars and the mind of a wizard would appreciate the tale. It has many elements that are drawn from the truth, but there is an added element of humour and frivolity that makes this book enjoyable. (But I also think they would be so inspired by this book that they would then go and research the actual Jane to learn about her.) Be sure to check out my review here! […]
