My Lady Jane Review

My Lady Jane

Synopsis  ( goodreads)-

The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey. In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history—because sometimes history needs a little help.
At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren’t for Jane to worry about. Jane gets to be Queen of England.
Like that could go wrong.
    My review: 
 Truth . I guess I had no idea what this book was about . I thought I had an idea but when I showed up to the signing and heard the authors talking about it I realized it was totally different than I thought it was. 
But. It wasn't a bad thing. At all , it was probably better that way , because I had no idea what the book was really about so when I opened it up my head was ready for anything new. 
Love. I loved this book. It was refreshing , humorous , and magical . I throughly enjoyed it . However it was different and the characters were very unique . My Lady Jane has three different perspectives making the book different , interesting and complex . It flowed wonderfully , you would never be able to tell three authors wrote it . Saying that I finished it in four days and it was 500 pages. 
Get ready.  Get ready for a man that is a horse ... But that's all I'm going to give to you. 
Go get the book and read it !!!
