A clever, hilarious and engaging retelling of the rise to power of Lady Jane Grey.

A comical, fantastical and witty re-imagining of the Tudor world, perfect for fans of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Lady Jane Grey, sixteen, is about to be married to a total stranger - and caught up in an insidious plot to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But that's the least of Jane's problems. She's about to become Queen of England. Like that could go wrong.

Review quote

... an entertaining and engaging read that captured my attention until the final page. * Diva Booknerd * Overall, this was such a fun read. More than once I checked my progress and thought, "Please go on! DO NOT END!" I will read it again. I can't wait for my girls to read it. I'm so happy to make this a part of our family collection. * Striking Keys * There is a clever play on words throughout the book, interspersed with narrator notes, an abundance of twist on history and some actual facts from around this era. * Creative Kids Tales * A few facts combined with A LOT of artistic license makes this humorous and extraordinary novel a different take on history. * Fictional Thoughts * "This book is full of adventure, magic, humour and romance. The characters in this story are very well thought out and interesting to get to know. I really liked the aspects of history and fantasy with occasional notes from the authors. [...] I really hope there is a sequel!" * Teen titles, reader review *
