My Lady Jane is the first book in The Lady Janies series by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows.
In My Lady Jane, co-writers Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows created a one-of-a-kind fantasy story in the tradition of The Princess Bride. The story is about a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a fleeting resemblance to actual history – because sometimes history needs a little help.
At the age of 16, Lady Jane Gray is about to marry a stranger and is caught up in a plot to usurp the throne of her cousin, King Edward. That petty problem wasn’t what Jane had to worry about. Jane is made queen of England.
My Lady Jane is the story of Jane Grey, who ruled England for 9 days after the death of Edward VI (son of Henry VIII). But this is not a story you read in history books. (“Part II: In which we throw history completely out the window.” Haha.) I don’t know exactly what the authors changed when I started the book, and I like it that way because when I discovered the central premise in the first chapter or so that I was very interested in.
My Lady Jane was written by three authors, Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows, and they clearly had a great time writing this book together. I love, I mean really love, ignoring all narrators. I think it’s interesting how they’re so self-aware and sublime about telling the story.
My Lady Jane’s audiobook is amazing. Kathrine Kellgren narrated the book. (She also narrated Austenland, one of my very favorite audiobooks.) Kellgren’s narration certainly made the book more humorous. She knocks it out of the park with a cheeky, tongue-out style. (Is there enough idioms for a sentence?)
