"Gregory creates suspense by raising intriguing questions about whether her characters will transcend their historical reputations." -"Kirkus Reviews" "Gregory returns with another sister act. The result: her best novel in years." ""The Kingmaker's Daughter" is Gregory in fine form. . . . The Cousins' War . . . provides a rich setting for drama with its endless plots and conniving courtiers." "From the queen of royal fiction comes a gripping 15th-century tale of the daughters of the man known as the 'Kingmaker.'" "Gregory ... always delivers the goods. Her latest novel wraps up her 'cousins' war' series of royal witches, philanderers and kingslayers with the story of King Richard III's wife, Anne Neville, who went from the marital bed of one royal prince to that of another king-to-be during this long family feud." "Gorgeous fun." "Gregory is one of historical fiction's superstars, and "The Kingmaker's Daughter" shows why. . . . providing intelligent escape, a trip through time to a dangerous past." "Gregory delivers another vivid and satisfying novel of court intrigue, revenge, and superstition. Gregory's many fans as well as readers who enjoy lush, evocative writing, vividly drawn characters, and fascinating history told from a woman's point of view will love her latest work." "It's every man and woman for themselves in Gregory's latest, which offers reliable royal entertainment." "The bonds of sisterhood infuse Gregory's latest. . . . The stakes are high as Anne and Isabel Neville, daughters of the earl of Warwick ('The Kingmaker'), vie for their father's favor and a chance at the throne. . . . . In addition to Gregory handling a complicated history, she convincingly details women's lives in the 1400s and the competitive love between sisters." "Conspiracy and a fight to the death for love and power."--"Los Angeles Times"
