The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey. In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history—because sometimes history needs a little help.
At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren’t for Jane to worry about. Jane is about to become the Queen of England.
“My Lady Jane” by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows is extremely comical and so much fun. Why couldn’t history class be this fun?
I am just going to get this part over with. It will be quick. What I didn’t like? Length, Length, Length.
The length of this novel was a bit much. The beginning started out strong. The middle was great. The last third was long. I feel like there were parts that cold have been cut out. See that wasn’t so bad right? Back to the good stuff.
The story was fun and unique. I enjoyed getting to know Lady Jane Grey. You don’t need to know history to enjoy this book. This is a fun rom-com.
My favorite character is G. G has a power that he looks at as a curse. I think G is the character that developed the most. He learns so much about life and himself.
Overall, I really liked “My Lady Jane”. It is fun and unique. I got to laugh a lot and enjoy reading about history being rewritten. This book will provide lots of laughs.
