Detalhes do produto
Descrições do Produto
EDWARD 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 is Edward’s cousin, and far more interested in books than in 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 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?
The comical, fantastical, romantical, entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey but not really
Lady Jane Grey, sixteen, is about to be married to a total stranger—and caught up in an insidious plot to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But that’s the least of Jane’s problems. She’s about to become Queen of England.
Like that could go wrong.

Escrita a SEIS mãos, o livro conta um história alternativa do reinado da história da coroa inglesa alguns anos antes de Elizabeth I assumir o poder. A melhor parte de todo o livro definitivamente foi a narração omnisciente das três autoras. Elas contavam a estória da Edward, Jane e G de uma forma descontraída e cheia de referências da nossa cultura pop. Exemplos disso são menções indiretas à Game of Thrones.
Recomendo MUITO, para quem gosta, o audiobook. A interpretação da narradora é fantástica. Ela dá entonações e velocidade ao texto de acordo com o contexto e só deixa tudo mais engraçado e divertido.
Apesar de ser engraçadíssimo e irreverente, a estória em si é bem simples. Muito bem amarrada e com um ritmo perfeito. Amei que elas pulavam alguns dias para seguir em frente com a estória e não se detinham muito tempo em alguns conflitos. Mas em alguns momentos a estória é até um pouco bobinha. Se fosse contada em um tom mais sério, que estamos acostumados a ver em outros livros de YA, não teria nenhum tipo de atrativo fora ser uma história alternativa da sucessão da coroa inglesa. De qualquer forma, a simplicidade do enredo combinou muito com o tom da narração, tornando a leitura altamente agradável.
É do meu conhecimento que as autoras escreverão mais dois livros de histórias alternativas como esse. Um eu tenho certeza que é sobre Jane Austen, mas o outro já não lembro mais.Saiba mais ›
Ah, e ainda tem a presença forte das autoras no meio da narração. As vezes só pra explicar algo e outra só pra te apavorar.
Dá pra sentir frios na barriga, momentos em que a gente torce pelo que for que a gente quer que aconteça e outros momentos em que apenas não dá pra ler de tão "AI MEU DEUS" que a gente tá. Recomendo demais!

My Lady Jane is a book that is meant to entertain in a gloriously funny, satisfying way. The narration is excellent, complete with wry observations, witty retorts and a dash of whimsy. I was hooked right from the start! (And no, it’s not just because I find British royal history fascinating, though that was definitely another reason I enjoyed it.) I loved the tone, which made it feel like I was reading someone’s journal or hearing a storyteller tell the tale. I loved the switches between characters, because it was all too interesting to discover what was going on with each individual. I loved the humor, because it is so rare for a novel to make me laugh out loud (and I did laugh reading this one, and multiple times). I loved the magic, which was simple but still so entertaining. It was certainly all too easy to get swept up in learning what was to become of Jane, Guildford and Edward, and it was just impossible to do anything but see these three through to the end of their story.
Can you tell I was happily entertained by this tale? Because I was! The combination of magic, history and humor (with just a tiny bit of romance) was utterly irresistible. Whether you’re fascinated by actual history or a total newbie to Jane’s story, this novel is guaranteed to make you crack a smile, if not elicit fully on belly laughs. I know I enjoyed it, and I certainly think that plenty of other readers will too.
Admittedly, I don’t know a lot about the story of Lady Jane Grey. Obviously by now, I know the broader points of history (and I still blame my middle school and high school education for a seriously lack of historical knowledge) so I think the book could have been a bit more fun if I was more of a history buff. I know a few friends who love history and have an extensive knowledge on historical events who took a little more joy from the story overall, so that’s really just a personal experience that unfortunately can’t helped. I will say, though, that the book was enjoyable whether you know the history or not! I had a basic understanding but details are explained and even if you don’t care about the true story, the book will carry you through with a fun historical-fiction romp (and they change the ending anyway so I suppose it doesn’t matter too much in the end)!
The concept of Eðians (people who magically change to and from an animal form) was so much fun! I loved how it was incorporated in to the book in so many ways — from selecting to change to being cursed, the support and blatant rejection, the people in disguise — it was a great way to incorporate magic from start to finish. I liked that it was the only real form of magic in the book so it brought that magical element but didn’t turn into a full-out fantasy. It was the perfect way to alter history just a bit and keep things tied to the actual facts.
I just loved the collaboration from Jodi Meadows, Brodi Ashton, and Cynthia Hand. They really put together a fun and unique book and MY LADY JANE easily found a place in so many readers’ hearts. MY LADY JANE easily appeals to fans of The Princess Bride with its historical feel and slight satire, Disney fans for its animal magic and pop culture references, and historical fans who love a twist on history. There are direct references to books and movies like The Princess Bride, A Game of Thrones, Monty Python, and I’m pretty sure I saw Tangled in there! It also had the magic of all of seeing everything combined and so many loves in one place. I laughed out loud so many times and the book was just so clever!
I had a weird experience in which reading this book was so enjoyable and yet it felt really long! The book is over 500 pages so it’s no speed-read but the content was so light and fun that I feel like I should have finished it fasted. Maybe it was just my reading schedule… but I do feel like it could have been a little bit shorter. A lot of people said the book just flew by and it didn’t feel to long until I was nearing the end and it still wasn’t over. Don’t get me wrong — I was enjoying the whole thing — but there was just something that was off that was making me anxious for things to wrap up. That’s seriously one of my only qualms, though. MY LADY JANE was always fun and these authors did a great job of putting things together!
What makes this book even more super-fantastic are the wonderful
references to modern-day movies/stories!!
It is a clear tribute to one of my all-time favorite movies, LADYHAWKE--"always together, eternally apart." I hope this book sends millions of people running to watch this movie because it's fantastic!!!
There is a reference to The Red Wedding in GAME OF THRONES!!!
To my great delight, it is also a wonderful tribute to the amazing and super-fantastic THE PRINCESS BRIDE!!!!
Lady Jane is described as a Hermoine-type character with a love of reading, loving libraries, and wild [red] hair!!!
Elizabeth (yes, THE Queen Elizabeth) is a Professor McGonagall-type character!!!
Lady Jane uses a frying pan to beat up soldiers, just like Rapunzel in TANGLED!!!! That's quite possibly my favorite part!!! "Frying pans! Who knew?!"
G reminds me so much of R in WARM BODIES! He's also portrayed as a would-be, possibly-could-have-been William Shakespeare! And his constant, "Oh, that's good. I need to write that down," is wonderfully reminiscent of the fantastic DRAGONHEART!!!
There is even a reference to JAWS!!! "We're going to need a bigger sword!"
I know I haven't even come close to mentioning all the wonderful stories the Lady Janes have referenced in the wonderful MY LADY JANE, so if you see others, I'd LOVE to compare notes. This book was worth the impulse buy, reading it all in one day, and staying up until 4:00 am!!!
If you are searching for such a book, THIS IS THAT BOOK.
P.S. I AM SO HAPPY THEY ARE WRITING 2 MORE JANE BOOKS!
