The Boleyn King - Laura Andersen

Definitely an interesting premise, and I really enjoyed the alternate history. What if Anne Boleyn had a son that was destined to become king? Although the character of William was fine, I was really captivated by how the author treated Anne and Elizabeth, along with other characters (even Jane Grey makes an appearance). How would the people look on Anne decades after her marriage to Henry? How would Elizabeth develop in her brother, the king's, shadow? The portrayal of historical characters that we have come to know served as a great support to the fictional William.

I stayed up late to finish this book, and while it did end on a bit of an open note, it is a trilogy, so I'd definitely be interested in reading the next book in the series.
