3 out of 5 (5 ratings)

Description

With fifteen-century Spain rent with intrigue and threatened by civil war, Isabella became the pawn of her ambitious, half-crazed mother and a virtual prisoner at the licentious court of her half-brother, Henry IV.

Was she, at sixteen, fated to be the victim of the Queen's revenge, the Archbishop's ambition and the lust of Don Pedro Giron, one of the most notorious lechers in Castile?

Numbed with grief and fear, Isabella yet remained steadfast in her determination to marry Ferdinand, the handsome young Prince of Aragon, her only true betrothed.

This book follows Isabella from childhood to her being crowned queen. I really enjoy reading about Isabella and Ferdinand and this book did not disappoint as a good historical fiction book about them. While some reviewers have found this to be very dry, I thought it was very interesting (but maybe that is because I do enjoy dry biographies as well). I liked that Jean Plaidy didn't go over-the-top with the fictionalization. I would definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a solid historical fiction book about Isabella and Ferdinand. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

This book covers the time period between Isabella's Father's death and her ascension to the Queen. I love the characterization, it makes the royalty seem normal and easy to relate to.
