"Anne Boleyn emerges as alluring, arrogant, and, ultimately trapped. The author successfully turns the cliche into a real person." --Linda Charlton, The New York Times Book Review
"What more intriguing subject, then, for a historian who has chosen to concentrate on the Tudor period, and whose previous studies of Henry VIII, Queen Mary, and Queen Elizabeth have been hailed for impeccable scholarship, graceful phrasing, and almost addictive readability--for the vividness and immediacy usually only found in the best novels." --Alida Becker, The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Erickson is one of the most accomplished and successful biographers writing in English."
--London Times Literary Supplement
"This book is highly enjoyable as well as being reilable and acute, indeed, it is popular historical biography at its best." --Christopher Hibbert, London Times
