  4. I've tried looking for Forbidden Queen on Amazon, and it's not even listed yet? When is it being published? I'll be curious to see what you think of it. I'm almost positive I read The King's Concubine and liked it, but I did not put it on my list, I know I read one about Alice Perrers, just don't know if it was by Anne! If it was by Anne O'Brien, it was good, from what I remember.

    LOVED Becoming Marie Antoinette!! Loved the 2nd book in the series, Days of Splendor, Days of Sorrow, and can't wait until the third one is published.

    1. I am not sure when it is being released. According to Netgalley it says it has already been released as of December 6, 2012. So I am not exactly sure. I will have to look into it though.

  5. Sigh, I just saw someone else reviewed The Forbidden Queen. I know now what it is about, Katherine of Valois, a subject that has always fascinated me and I always try to read whatever I can get my hands on about her (which isn't much). I did see that the only publication date as of now is March, 2013, in the UK!!!

    1. I'll look into it for you. I will be reading this one next so I will get the details before I post and see what is going on. If needs be, I can always email the publisher and see if they can give me the information directly.
