Legacy by Susan Kay

Legacy is a Historical Fiction book about the first Queen Elizabeth. I found it hard to put down.

 

Legacy delves into the personal relationships that helped to shape Elizabeth as both a person and as a monarch, but I never felt as if I were reading a 'Romance' novel. There was loads of political intrigue and Elizabeth was depicted as very clever, always maintaining control of her emotions enough to keep her position (and often her life!) secure whilst dealing with other contenders for the throne and the complications that religion brought to the monarchy in that time.

 

I thought it was brilliantly done and will be looking out for more books by this author. Sometimes history can be more exciting than pure fiction and this was a good example of how to bring it all to life.
