My Lady Jane by @CynthiaHand, @brodiashton, @jodimeadows @harperteen #BookReview

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.

Cynthia Hand is the New York Times bestselling author of the Unearthly trilogy. She has graduate degrees in creative writing from Boise State University and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. For several years she taught writing at Pepperdine University in California.

First-time author Brodi Ashton received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Utah and a master’s degree in international relations from the London School of Economics. Brodi has an active following on her blog, which can be found at She lives in Utah with her family.

Jodi Meadows is the author of the Incarnate series and The Orphan Queen. She lives and writes in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, with her husband, a cat, and an alarming number of ferrets. She is a confessed book addict and has wanted to be a writer ever since she decided against becoming an astronaut.

My Lady Jane is a witty novel that had me laughing from beginning to end. I thought that since each of the three POVs' were written by a different author that it would be difficult to understand, but they all blended so perfectly. The characters were very well developed and I fell in love with each of them. I really liked how the authors included the real history of the events, but in just the right proportions. I am going to recommend this book to everyone I know!
