This book was exceptionally written and held my attention through the whole story. Although it was a little wordy sometimes it was not hard to understand and get through. The ending was not how i hoped it would be but it was gripping nevertheless. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading history novels or who love betrayal, gossip, and manipulation.
