My review of the King’s Witch by Tracy Borman

(c) Hodders Paperbacks

The King’s Witch by Tracy Borman is a superb tale of witchcraft, betrayal and treason at the Stuart Court. Although in the last days of the Tudor monarchy, Frances Gorges helped tend to the dying Elizabeth I, her skills are not welcomed by the new monarch James I.

Summoned to court as an attendant to Princess Elizabeth, Frances finds herself caught up in the hysteria against witches, her uncle’s ambitious plans and a plot that threatens the throne.

With characterizations that leap off the page and settings so real that you can almost smell the herb gardens and wood smoke; this is an enthralling read that I did not want to end.
