Honestly this is the first Historical Fiction i have finished and I'm glad that i read this book, even though it was a Non Fiction it didn't feel that way it was thrilling and exhilarating to read and it was packed full of information. 

When it came to the information it gave, 99% of it was perfect and completely historically correct but i did find one fault and that was mix up of two of the Woodville Brothers John & Edward. this wasn't something that bothered me because i knew the truth when i read it but if someone doesn't know the truth then it is giving them false information. 

But like i said it was a thrilling read and it read like fiction and not non fiction but it was so good that you do realise that it is non fiction because of the amount of information you are getting, it felt like a film in my head as i was reading it.

I gave this 5 stars because of how informative it was and just the way it is written, this is one of the best non fiction books i have ever read and it has made me want to read Jones' other book one i have mentioned before as a book i would probably never finish because of how big it is, but now i really want to read it.

Until Next Time
Happy Reading
