    Summary

    Lady Kathryn, better known as Katy, lived a simple life in Ireland. That is until her father was accused of treason, and she left home to plead for his life. Katy soon finds herself in the midst of a looming civil war, away from the safety of her family, and a pawn to the ruling power. Katy is forced to navigate a world where families turn on one another as the Houses of York and Lancaster fight for the throne.

     

    Author's note: While many of the characters are real people, creative liberties have been taken including respective ages of characters and historical accuracy of events. Katy is my own original character and is based on no particular woman of the time.

    Summary

    Individual reviews of historical royal fiction by Philippa Gregory, especially her "Cousins' War" series about the Wars of the Roses. I have read a lot of these books, and enjoyed them, and learned a lot from them; but I also have to admit that sometimes the characters are unpleasant, and I look forward to seeing them get their comeuppance.

    Summary

    “You will shame us and you will shame yourself,” Cersei Lannister says bitterly. “Robb Stark is no king. He shall never be king. He is a green boy, a pretender, a traitor.”

    Myrcella looks anxiously up at the window. The sun is almost fully risen. “He has half a dozen battles to his name. He massacred our men at Maidenpool. Daenerys Targaryen is across the Narrow Sea and Aegon Targaryen is fled to Dorne. They cannot help me. Father says that their cause is lost while he lives.”

     

    An ASOIAF retelling of the Wars of the Roses.

    Summary

    [WAR OF THE ROSES MODERN AU]

    Love is never about being together with each other. Preferably, both of you achieve your goals, or else one has to step out of the way, so there’s always be one in hell watching the other obtain their position.

    To fulfill your ambition through gambling, losing your life or earning the chips to play the next game, the cards are laid down until there’s no chance of going back. To erase the past or write the future, all it takes is a cup of silver bullets.

    In the constant struggle for power, hate can turn into the strong alliances and love can be wielded as lethal degree of poison.

    Anne's workload is snowballing so she'll have to give Ned's party a miss. Richard is determined not to let that happen. How can she possibly refuse? Featuring some library flirting, a very red-faced Anne and the first dustings of snow in December. Modern AU.
