Brandon - Tudor Knight by Tony Riches

Publication Date: December 3, 2018
Preseli Press
Genre: Historical/Tudor/Biographical
From the author of the international bestselling Tudor Trilogy comes a true story of adventure, courtly love and chivalric loyalty. Handsome, charismatic and a champion jouster, Sir Charles Brandon is the epitome of a Tudor Knight. A favourite of King Henry VIII, Brandon has a secret. He has fallen in love with Henry’s sister, Mary Tudor, the beautiful widowed Queen of France, and risks everything to marry her without the King’s consent. Brandon becomes Duke of Suffolk, but his loyalty is tested fighting Henry’s wars in France. Mary’s public support for Queen Catherine of Aragon brings Brandon into dangerous conflict with the ambitious Boleyn family and the king’s new right-hand man, Thomas Cromwell. Torn between duty to his family and loyalty to the king, Brandon faces an impossible decision: can he accept Anne Boleyn as his new queen?

My Review: 

Brandon – Tudor Knight is the first book I have read by Tony Riches. Mr Riches has obviously did extensive research to write this book. I felt like I was transported in time living by Sir Charles Brandon. I did not realize he was such a fascinating character during the Tudor dynasty. I kept finding myself wanting to find out if certain scenes really happened.

I am giving Brandon – Tudor Knight a well deserved five plus stars. I loved it so much, I read the rest of the author’s books in just a few weeks. I can not wait to find out who he will be writing about next. I highly recommend this book, especially readers who love the Tudor era.

I received this book through the Kindle Unlimited Program. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
