Waterstones Says

The much anticipated fifth instalment in Weir’s cycle of novels reimagining the lives of the six women betrothed to Henry VIII. Katheryn Howard, the Tainted Queen tells the tragic story of a teenage bride whose short years at the heart of the court are brought vividly and unforgettably to life in Weir’s magnetic prose.

Signed Edition with exclusive essay

A naive young woman at the mercy of her ambitious family.

At just nineteen, Katheryn Howard is quick to trust and fall in love.

She comes to court. She sings, she dances. She captures the heart of the King.

Henry declares she is his rose without a thorn. But Katheryn has a past of which he knows nothing. It comes back increasingly to haunt her. For those who share her secrets are waiting in the shadows, whispering words of love... and blackmail.

Katheryn Howard
The fifth of Henry's Queens
