Not only is this a creative take on a love affair which changed history, I found the usage of the astrological houses, colors and motifs to be well placed and subtle. The addition of medicine and magic was fascinating. The story is spell binding. My only complaint is that I now I want to know more about the author's view of Jane Seymour. My own work in psychology makes me believe this Jane is probably much closer to the real Jane Seymour than we have been lead to believe. Well done Hunter Jones. I look forward to seeing what you conjure up for your next story.
I really enjoyed Rising Phoenix, even thought I've read a lot of historical fiction based on Anne Bolyen, I'd never really seen a book quite like this one. Most books on Anne Bolyen don't normally focus on her execution. After all it is a very difficult topic, however, I think this book handled it rather well. The story is told through many points of view including, King Henry VIII, Princess Mary, Jane Seymour, Elizabeth Howard Boleyn (Anne's mother) the executioner, and Anne Bolyen herself. I enjoyed reading from all the point of views, I think it helped build a solid story and it was interesting to see other people's views on Anne's execution. I love how Hunter Jones weaved a little magic into this tale, I especially enjoyed the omens the author hid in the story.
Most books, documentaries and TV shows often portray Jane as an innocent, vitreouse women the complete opposite of how Anne Bolyen is portrayed. She is normally shown as a scheming, selfless, social climber, but one has to wonder whether the roles where actually reversed in some fashion. After all I have to believe that Anne Bolyen really loved Henry and as the book and history states the case brought before Anne Bolyen was deeply flawed and only one man accused of adultery with the queen confessed, but even that was influenced by torture.Read more ›
This novella is recounted by a female descendant of King Henry's personal physician, who inherits a mysterious star map and thusly shares information with readers.
Albeit in Tennessee, the narrator takes readers back to Tudor, England, and enlightens us on innermost happenings of the 16th century, especially those surrounding King Henry. Pay attention to the color motifs throughout the novella that correspond with astrological events during this historical reign, and notice clever allusion to elements, fire, water, wind, and earth.
For anyone with interest in the second wife of Henry VIII and other players during that long ago time. the descendant of King Henry's Welsh physician, offers vital and interesting information.
