How are the novels?

Worth reading? In regards to the real history.
I.e. do they offer a realistic view of the world back then or are they too "modern"? In the sense that they portray the characters through modern eyes and with modern values?
IMO that happens very often with "historical novels".

one thing i'm sure off is that there gonna be some fiction and fantasy in it in the previous novel and tv series "the white queen" which this novel is it's sequel there was a lot of fantasy in it like the idea that Elizabeth Woodville
her mother and her daughter the future queen Elizabeth of York were witches .

The White Queen tv series was more soap opera than historical drama. The costuming was horrible. The events are in the mid to later 1400s and they actors look they are in a bad production of Romeo and Juliet. Women running around with their hair uncovered which would never have happened in that time.

Thanks, both of you

I think I'll skip the novels then. It'll only annoy me if they are too far out.
The real persons would be interesting enough as it is, no need to "beef them up" IMO.

Muhler- Did you see the tv adaption of Hillary Mantel's Wolf Hall? If you are looking for a more historical take, I would highly recommend that one. The cast is excellent with Damien Lewis as Henry VIII, Claire Foy as Anne Boleyn and Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell.

Yeah if you want to watch something watch Wolf Hall. It's at least closer to reality and the quality of work is excellent.
