  1. The best book of trilogy.Margaret Irwin has written historical fiction in it s best Not only she was able to create one of the best fictional portrayals of Elizabeth along that in Legacy by Susan Kay as I already witnessed in her previous books Young Bess and Captive princess , but this book also proves that she can do the same with Philip of Spain, man who became to one of the greatest antagonists if not the greatest of Elizabeth and protestant England, and person, who hadn t got enough spotlig [...]


  2. This was an enjoyable conclusion to the three part trilogy by famed author Margaret Irwin The book can be read as a stand alone, but I am looking forward to reading the first two in the series Young Bess The Girl Who Would Be Queen and Elizabeth, Captive Princess Two Sisters, One Throne.These books were originally published in the 40s and 50s Sourcebooks is continuing their grand tradition of reintroducing fantastic books to readers of today The books come across a bit reserved than many of the [...]


  3. I thoroughly enjoyed this book Originally published in 1953 this was the last book in Margaret Irwin s Young Bess series Because it was written in an earlier era the book is not a racy bodice ripper something that I appreciate It s not that I m a prude but I do get a tad tired of the sex sells philosophy especially in relation to good historical fiction writing This book revolves around Philip of Spain s relationship with Elizabeth The staunch Catholic, philanderer depending on your point of vie [...]


  4. I enjoyed the entire trilogy very much As a history major I have read about and studied Tudor England ad nauseam, however, these books gave a fresh perspective albeit a fictional one But then, since history is based on the perspectives and observations of biased and subjective human beings I guess in a way history itself is just another form of fiction Anyway, I waited to review the books until after I had read all three Although the books are well written and could be read independently of each [...]


  5. This was such an unusual point of view for an Elizabethan novel It is the third in Ms Irwin s series on the young Elizabeth I read the first one, Young Bess and liked it but didn t love it I did not have the opportunity to read the second This one I found fascinating I must admit to not knowing all that much about Philip of Spain and this book opened my eyes a bit to a man who was an important figure in Tudor times Ms Irwin s book postulates that Elizabeth may not have survived Mary s reign with [...]

  7. As a major student of the Tudor dynasty, I was really looking forward to this book Sadly, I was disappointed as was likely the case in reality, the vibrant Elizabeth cast everything else around her including the plot into shadow I didn t love it, but I will probably read it again after reading the first two books in the trilogy After thinking about it, I went with three stars.Truncated review available at Luxury Reading luxuryreading elizabethandExpanded review available at The Writer s Closet A [...]


  8. Review This final novel in the trilogy focuses on Elizabeth s relationships as Queen, in particular building on the previous storyline with Philip II of Spain Philip isn t in this book as much as the previous one, but Elizabeth still plays with him, juggling relationships with different men to keep the balance of power in Europe.Genre Historical DramaCharacters Elizabeth I Philip II of Spain Robert Dudley William Cecil Mary I Renard Matthew Parker Reginald PoleSetting London Hatfield England Ser [...]


  9. Sadly I did not finish this and do not understand why it has been given such high ratings I did not enjoy the style of writing which I found to be pretentious and overly complicated Nor could I work out if the author was trying to be a historical biographer or a mills boon author The chapters did not flow, and the style chopped and changed Not for me


  10. Elizabeth finally becomes queen in the 3rd and final book in the trilogy I read all 3 from the book shelf of the condo we rented in Ft Pierce, FL Pattie and I were able to discuss the interesting parts as we went since she read all three books before me The question remains did Elizabeth remain a virgin The book never answers that but both Pattie and I doubt it.


  11. I think if this series had been written today, it would have been one epic novel I m so glad it wasn t And I liked the ambiguous ending it made it apparent that history continues, without a lot of foreshadowing Nice.



  12. 4.5 5An excellent conclusion to the Elizabeth I trilogy Myfull review may be read on my book review blogRundpinne.


  13. This trilogy of books, Margaret Irwin s Elizabeth Trilogy, is about queen Elizabeth I and takes the reader from her turbulent childhood through her siblings reigns and finally to becoming Queen herself It is great historical fiction.


  14. I was really disappointed by how boring this book was What a surprise considering how exciting that period and the plots were Perhaps it s a symptom of the age when this book was written, as it is quite old now I won t be reading any other books by this author now



  15. Really enjoyed this part of the trilogy It focused alot on Philip and his relationship with Elizabeth It is something that is mostly breezed over in other novels about Elizabeth.




  16. The ending was certainly a bit strange this is the third of a three part series but the way the book ended it felt like there should have been another one to follow
