Book Series: The Cousins War

The Kings Curse by Phillipa Gregory is the last book for her series the Cousins War. Please note that the book was originally going to be called The Last Rose. But was changed. Personally I think the name chosen for the book fits much better.  The title itself will grab a lot of readers attention.

This book focuses on a Tudor  cousin to the king , Margaret Pole. Her story of what was happening in the royal court in 1499. She is an interesting character. Yep, I'll just leave it at that. If you want to know then you will need to read the book. I started reading this book the day it was released in the US, on my kindle. Now that I have finished the book. I can honestly say this book was my least favorite in the series. Not that the author changed her writing style or anything. Just really wasn't a big fan of this book.  But it did tie in a lot of loose ends that I was curious about in The White Princess.

But if you are reading the series. I would encourage you read all of the books. Nothing worse then never finding out the endings. There are the books that you need to read in order:
The Lady of the Rivers
The White Queen
Th Red Queen
The Kingmakers Daughter
The White Princess
The Kings Curse (The Last Rose)
