Edward (long live the king) is the King of England. He’s also dying, which is inconvenient, as he’s only sixteen and he’d much rather be planning for his first kiss than considering who will inherit his crown…
Jane (reads too many books) is Edward’s cousin, and far more interested in books than romance. Unfortunately for Jane, Edward has arranged to marry her off to secure the line of succession. And there’s something a little odd about her intended…
Gifford (call him G) is a horse. That is, he’s an Eðian (eth-y-un, for the uninitiated). Every day at dawn he becomes a noble chestnut steed—but then he wakes at dusk with a mouthful of hay. It’s all very undignified.
The plot thickens as Edward, Jane, and G are drawn into a dangerous conspiracy. With the fate of the kingdom at stake, our heroes will have to engage in some conspiring of their own. But can they pull off their plan before it’s off with their heads?.

I finally managed to read another book this month, It was a huge risk I took as it is one of the hyped books and I am not finding much time to read. Luckily I loved it.
“On everyone’s lap rested a book. Any book. In case the wedding got boring.”
I used to think that historical fictions are overloaded with information but this book change that stereotype for me. What the authors did with the story is just brilliant. All of these authors are new to me this is the first book I’ve read by these.
The Writing style, story, characters, narrators everything was so impressive. Narrators were hilarious 😂 and the characters were so goofy. I loved the plot, It was way different than what I expected from a monarchy focused historical fiction.
“Who on earth could feel comfortable enough to sleep in a room with no books? Edward”
Jane and G 😍, I was totally shipping for them and their relationship is one of the most favourite parts of the story.
I loved it when one character is bibliophile and Jane was literally one.
All the other characters were so likeable and well developed, I enjoyed each and everything about this book 🙂
