      I've been wanting to try one of this author's historical romances for a long time, so I jumped at the chance to check out her first historical fiction offering, but I'm sorry to say that it didn't send me. I gave up after about 150 pages. There were some mechanical issues like too much telling of historical, political, and character info and "as you know, Bob" dialogue, but mainly I could not swallow the heroine's inconsistency; she continually pined over her love and devotion to her husband and [...]

      Find this and other reviews at: flashlightcommentary.Tudor fiction. The phrase alone makes me cringe. Wolf Hall, The Other Boleyn Girl, The Autobiography of Henry VIII, The Sixth Wife, Secrets of the Tudor Court, Queen's Gambit… there are enough titles on the market that I could go on all day. With so many options, it’s hard to imagine an author bringing something new to the table. Are there really angles that haven’t been tried, schemes that haven’t been woven, or characters who haven [...]

    3. WTF Are You Reading? says:

      Though much has been made of lives, wives, deaths, and courts held by the various Tudor Queens; the life and times of young Queen Jane (Seymour) has gone largely unsung.Until nowMy Lady Viper gives readers that much yearned for glimpse inside the Seymour reign.Told in the voice of Lady Anne Seymour, the story we find here is far from that of staid civility, and forthright purity, as reported by history.While that might have been true for the tragic Queen Jane, it was far from the case with those [...]

    4. Caroline says:

      I was really excited to pick up a book about Anne Stanhope Seymour, the notoriously manipulative wife of Edward Seymour. The Seymour family often gets lost in the shuffle of Tudor history, especially compared to the Howards. I tend to think that this is because the queen they produced, Jane Seymour, isn't as flashy or tragic as the Howard queens, Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard. Hardcore Boleyn fans just hate the Seymours (which is a shame, because Henry VIII is the one truly at fault) and cast [...]

    5. Meg - A Bookish Affair says:

      "My Lady Viper" is the story of Anne Seymour, who becomes a lady in waiting to Jane Seymour, who is, of course, one of Henry VIII's queens. This is the first traditional historical fiction offering from E. Knight, who also writes romances under the name Eliza Knight. It was neat to see the author make a jump to traditional historical fiction and after reading this book, I can say that the jump was worth it. Now Tudor fiction can be tricky and it's a tricky subject for me. I was going guns a'blaz [...]

    6. Alexandra says:

      If a book has anything to do with Tudor history, I will read it. I generally like to read books centering around Anne Boleyn, and as a result I have become part of "Team Howard" rather than "Team Seymour" (forgive me for the phrasing there). That being said, it was very different for me to read a book that focused on the Seymour family, and did so in a positive way. I thought I would hate the book because of this, but I ended up thoroughly enjoying it. It was fun to see some characters in a new [...]

    7. A Holland Reads says:

      This was my first book by this author and I enjoyed it as I can never get enough of Tudor books. I enjoyed reading about the Seymour family and another Anne in Tudor history. The author did a very good job in my opinion with the development of the characters and they just see to jump off the page at you. I think she also did very good with the setting so she made feel as if you were right there in Henry's court. Another thing I enjoyed was the telling of yet another love triangle from the Tudor [...]

      A fabulously scandalous new series set in the Tudor Court, highly recommended!

    9. Melisende d'Outremer says:

      Political machinations, intrigue, treachery - all make for good historical fiction set in the court of Henry VIII just after the execution of Anne Boleyn.This story is told from the perspective of Anne Seymour - sister-in-law of Jane, who would become Henry's third wife. We follow Anne as she navigates the corridors of power that will first see Jane on the throne and then the Seymour clan cling to power as the relatives of Henry's only son and heir.Anne was - at one point - the most powerful wom [...]

    10. Anne Monteith says:

      While still in school I developed a deep, life-long interest in Tudor history, which later led me to delve deeper into other ages in ancient English history, but the Tudors have remained one of my favorites. There’s been so much written about them and their court, some good, some bad and so bad that should never have been put to paper but yet authors continue to turn out novels that readers devour. While I’ve not read everything I can say that I am familiar with most of the history of those [...]

    11. Lauralee says:

      My Lady Viper is a biographical novel of Queen Jane Seymour's, the third wife of Henry VIII, sister-in-law, Anne Seymour. Anne Seymour was known to be disliked around court, and was described as a viper. This novel gives us an in-depth psyche of Anne’s actions as she rises to become the Duchess of Somerset, and also, for a brief time, the most powerful woman in the world. She is not mostly seen as a viper, but as a strong-willed woman, who helps her family. The story is set during King Henry [...]

    12. Michelle (True Book Addict) says:

      I've said this before and I'm not the only one. The Tudors are becoming a bit over saturated in books and other mediums. In order for this illustrious historical dynasty to stay fresh, and don't get me wrong hereI love the Tudors, I really do, but as I was saying, in order for them to appeal to us in a fresh way, the stories need to be told in a fresh way. And one way of doing this is to bring to the forefront the background characters. That is exactly what this author has done. By telling the s [...]

    13. Darlene says:

      My Lady Viper is E. Knight’s latest novel and it is fantastic! I’ve read a couple of the author’s historical/erotic romances earlier this year but this is her first historical novel and it is impressive. My Lady Viper takes place during the Tudor era and instead of being about the same old characters (which I still love) it brings to the forefront a lesser talked about character and that is Anne Seymour. This novel is enthralling from beginning to end and brings alive a Tudor court full of [...]

    14. Amy says:

      I received a free copy of this book from Lake Union Publishing in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Oh my word. I think this is one of the best historical fiction books I've ever read. I was hooked all the way through the book, and I can't help but compare her writing style to Philippa Gregory (my favourite historical fiction author).I adore the Tudor period. I've researched it, and even had a mini-obsession with it in the past [...]

    15. Kathleen Kelly says:

      Anne Seymour, nee Stanhope, was the second wife to Edward Seymour. Edward was the eldest brother to Jane Seymour, who was wife to King Henry VIII after Anne Boleyn. This is another Tudor historical fiction novel and starts off with the beheading of Anne Boleyn and takes the reader through the later part of King Henry VIII's reign and his subsequent marriages. Jane Seymour dies of childbed fever after the birth of Prince Edward, later King Edward. Edward and Anne have very powerful positions in t [...]

    16. Stephanie Tracy says:

      This is a beautiful look at the Henrican court, seen through the eyes of one of its most maligned (and perhaps misunderstood) women, Lady Anne Seymour (Stanhope). The wife of Edward Seymour, she is a conniving, clever woman when it comes to maneuvering through the scandals and conflicts at court. Known by many as a "viper" or a "vicious" woman, she certainly isn't revered for her charms or compassion, but maybe that's what makes her such an interesting figure. Knight does a great job of portrayi [...]

    17. Janina Barlow says:

      An enjoyable romp through the Tudor court seen through the eyes of Anne Seymour (Stanhope) , Lady Hertford, at times it felt like Fifty Shades of Grey meets The Tudors. It raced along at a good pace, however I felt it was rushed towards the end to get key historical events . That said I did enjoy this novel for what it was. Well written despite a couple of small errors, the mention of Potatoes and cups of tea in porcelain cups had me eye rolling at one point, either poorly researched or and over [...]

    18. Denise says:

      Absolutely loved this book. For all Tudor lovers who think they've read everything possible about every court personality's one for you. Anne Stanhope Seymour, Duchess of Somerset, interacted with all Henry VIII's queens, as well as the King himself, and anyone who was anyone during his heyday. She was a power to be reckoned, almost universally hated, yet this book gives her a human side and a backstory. Sooo glad this book ended on a high note, right after her ascension from Countess to Duchess [...]

      Review published at AudioGals.

    20. Tami Williamson says:

      Good Read. Strong & Brave Female Lead Character.Although not entirely historically accurate, the characters did indeed exist & some events did as well. Anne is an excellent heroine. She & Edward Seymour are portrayed as not only a powerful force at court, but a genuinely equal & loving partnership. It is a good read; however, the historical inaccuracies can be mildly frustrating for readers who know their Tudor history well.

    21. Kathryn Porter says:

      Slow start that never picked up the paceI always find it frustrating when writers go into detail about what someone is thinking. Sometimes they do it well. Other times, like in this book, the author spends a lot of time in Anne's thoughts and feeling making her sound like a silly girl.

    22. Barbara Bingham says:

      I loved it!The intrigue of the court life with its machinations, deceptions, lies, plots, sexual encounters within the court keeps your interest peaked on every page. It kept me immersed for hours at a time. Lovely historical fiction!!!

    26. Vanessa says:

      I started this book with the hope I would be able to give it at least three stars, but after only a few pages I knew it would probably be two. Now it's just one. There might be mild spoilers in this review, but most of it is historical stuff that sort of happened.Sadly the books starts out mediocre and gets worse with time. The main character is all over the place. She's the prime example of telling and not showing. According to the other characters she's beautiful (even when she grows older - o [...]

      Originally posted on my blog: lampshadereader/2016/04/17My Lady Viper is 452 pages of pure court intrigue set around the Tudor era, King Henry VIII’s reign. It’s house Seymour vs. house Howard in an epic, backstabbing, plotting, and vengeful journey to become a favorite in Henry’s eyes. Which house will reign supreme? It was truly interesting to see the era through Anne Seymour’s eyes. Her path to become well situated in court, earns her the nicknames of Hell and Viper.There is so much g [...]

      Really not sure how I feel about this one.I soaked up all the history of the Tudors like a sponge. Always, love reading more whether fiction or non fiction. For that alone I should give this story a 4 star rating but I just can't bring myself to do that.I found the Main MC - to be very unlikable and manipulative. Granted I'm sure that was necessary to survive in those times - however, it really didn't make me like her anymore. She always seemed to look at things from the point of view - as how c [...]

    30. Sandra Smiley says:

      When I downloaded this book, it was classified as Historical Fiction. Upon reading it, and finding that most of the characters are randy in the worst way, I later find out that this was to be Historical/Romance Fiction. I can deal with that, but I found it lacking in both the historical front and the romance front.Usually, when I read a historical fantasy, the people in actual history are remarked upon by new characters and react to the events of the time; or, since the history is much lost, mor [...]
