    1. Interesting novel, very interesting. I loved it very much! When she is at the Tower, waiting for her death, Anne's emotions are captured well, especially in the run up to what she thinks will be her execution – her pain that Henry betrayed her and their love and her anxiety that she will have to die an innocent traitor. I loved the way Anne was saved and then escaped from England. I welcome the changes in the new Anne Boleyn very well: now she is more cautious and colder, she doesn’t give he [...]


    2. I’m in two minds about this book. On the one hand, it has one really strong point to recommend it. But on the other hand, there are some minor niggles that bring it down – several minor niggles which add up. As a result it was a story I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend, but at the same time I can definitely see areas for improvement which I do hope are addressed in the second book.Let’s discuss the book’s great strength first. The big hook of Between Two Kings is that it plays hist [...]


    3. This novel is a must-be-read thing for passionate fans of the Tudor and Renaissance period!Although it is an AU in which Anne Boleyn survives and escapes from England beginning her life under a false identity and later marrying the King of France, the plot of the novel flows naturally from history. The author masterfully develops the character of the new Anne Boleyn because the old Anne Boleyn is dead. In this book, Anne finds herself “caught” between the past and the present, between King H [...]


    4. Really like this book! Love the story of Anne Boleyn AU. I couldn't wait for the second book and to see Henry Tudor's reaction when he found out about everything and the relationship development between Anne Boleyn and King Francis I.


    5. I’ve always been interested in books set in the Tudor and Renaissance eras, including alternate history fiction and science fiction. I was happy when Between Two Kings was published more than two years ago. I’m also aware that now Olivia Longueville is working on the revised version of Between Two Kings, and my expectations for this new novel are very high. This alternate history novel about Anne Boleyn offers a fine blend of the lovely writing and the breakthrough plot about Anne’s salvat [...]


    6. I've been fascinated by Anne Boleyn since I was a child and am an avid reader of any book about her that I can get my hands on.As excellent as some of them are, almost every book about Anne Boleyn has a drawback in common: the ending. I know that it's coming but it doesn't keep me from reaching for tissues or from wishing that both the real Anne Boleyn and her fictional counterparts could have had a happier fate."Between Two Kings" takes Anne on a different path, away from the scaffold, away fro [...]


    7. Olivia! Give me more!!! What a great story. The very best "what if" Anne book I've read. The other reviews say there will be more. How do I get on a pre-order list, so that as soon as it prints, I get my copy? Wow I truly liked this one. The writing is fantastic. Only found 3 editing mistakes. Not the authors fault, she did a great job. As a reader of Boleyn fiction and non-fiction, this was one of the best written. A very easy read. It just flows. If I keep going, words like wonderful, fantasti [...]


    8. This book had a promising storyline, and was an AU that still managed to stick roughly to historical canon. The blurb was great, I really looked forward to it, and then I got to the end of the book and went what? Where is the rest? Then I found out this book will be continued by a series, which made made my question void. Something that slightly annoyed me about this book was the spoon-feeding language we were given. I certainly wouldn't expect the author to be writing in the actual style, but y [...]


    9. As much as I love stories about Anne Boleyn, we know the ending is always (unfortunately) the same I've been waiting for a book like Olivia's to come along. Between Two Kings is a beautiful reimaging of what Anne's life might have been like had she escaped her dreadful fate at the business end of a French sword. I was surprised and delighted by the journey the author set Anne off on and I thoroughly enjoyed the important role that Francis I played. Olivia's love for the French Court is evident a [...]


    10. Interesting novel, very interesting.When she is in the Tower, waiting for her death, Anne's emotions are captured well, especially in the run up to what she thinks will be her execution – her pain that Henry betrayed her and their love and her anxiety that she will have to die an innocent traitor. I loved the way Anne was saved and then escaped from England. I welcome the changes in the new Anne Boleyn very well: now she is more cautious and colder, she doesn’t give her emotions a free reign [...]


    11. This is what alternate history fiction should be like. Believable. So often, the Tudors are combined with elements of the fantastic and the horrible. And true, that has its place. But its rare to find a gem that so artfully weaves a what if story together that you could see it happening in real life. That is what "Between Two Kings" is. A real gem. For those who have read Laura Andersen's "The Boleyn Trilogy", it deals with the idea that Anne Boleyn gave birth to a son and remained at the Tudor [...]


    12. I thought it would be interesting to see an alternate history with Anne Boleyn, unfortunately the writing left much to be desired. It was written in a fashion akin to the way a fifth grader composes a book report, short choppy sentences with minimal vocabulary. Not great. After the first chapter I felt that every sentence was a punishment "Anne thought this" "Francois did that" "Percy didn't like Henry" I finished it only because to leave a book unfinished bothers me, the plot seemed to have eve [...]


    13. A "what if" storyThe author has presented a far from factual but immensely satisfying story about Anne Boleyn. What if Anne escaped death at the hands of King Henry VIII and was smuggled out of England?Ms. Longueville uses historical facts and events to create an alternative life for Anne Boleyn following her planned execution. I found the story fascinating and intriguing as I followed Anne's escape and the adventures that followed.My deduction of one star is for more than ten errors in the book [...]


    14. This book is an interesting twist on Anne Boleyn's story. I love that Anne lives and she seeks to avenge her reputation while getting even with HenryVIII. A quick!y moving story that is also historically interesting and filled with twists to history that are quite possible. I loved this book!I would recommend this book to any lovers of Tudor times and especially Anne Boleyn. This is a bit of alternate history done in a very believable manner.


    15. Subjunctive history at it's best.Highly recommended this imaginative and well written tale of what could have happened if Anne Boleyn escaped from being executed and lived to take her revenge on those who brought her down . Look forward to reading the next book in this series.


    16. I could not put this down. A very plausible what if? Anne saved from the executioners hand by a well thought out plot. Flees from England to a new life and becomes? You have to read it to find out. I am eagerly waiting the next book.


    17. Things to think aboutPretty cool take on alternative history. I like how she tried to stay close to actual historical events. This made the story more believable.



    18. Excellent story, very well written and description of anne boleyn and the change from old Anne Boleyn and the new Queen of France was excellent


    19. I really enjoyed this. Having read a lot about the Tudors both fictional and nom fiction I found this an interesting and absorbing twist to a famous tale, and it really drew me in. Very good read!


    20. Speculative history. What if Anne Boleyn hadn't been executed -- and Henry believed she had been -- and she was able to get out of England. What might have happened then?




    21. DNF at 31%I am basically like everyone else who read this book. I wanted it for the blurb. My beloved Anne survives somehow, then goes and marries King Francis I of France? Hell yes! But, sadly, I was disappointed. What is this? Three Tudor historical fiction books in a row that I've DNFed. So, I'm really bummed, especially for this one since it was so awesome and completely unique. That's basically the only reason I gave it two stars.The problems I had were ones I thought I could brush aside wh [...]


    22. This was a lovely, sweet, well written, and original Olivia Longueville novella by an author that didn’t disappoint me. I have long wanted to read a good alternate history novel about Anne Boleyn, but I didn’t like what we have on the market. The Boleyn King by Laura Andersen is a great trilogy, but it is about Anne and Henry’s son, not about Anne Boleyn. Between Two Kings is a novel about Anne Boleyn’s survival and many other events.Anne Boleyn has been left heartbroken and bereft after [...]


    23. I read the first edition of the novel, and I bought this book when I discovered that it was re-published. This is an amazing novel. The second addition is better. Thank you so much for writing it!This novel is a must-be-read thing for passionate fans of the Tudor period.This is a great AU that re-imagines Anne Boleyn's life. What if Anne survived and escaped from England, starting a new thrilling life full of adventures and plans for revenge on King Henry VIII of England. Later, Anne Boleyn save [...]


    24. I liked the premise of the book. It was interesting enough, a nice change from the other AUs about Anne Boleyn and and an easy read. I do have some points of criticism, though.• The dialogues were a little wooden at times. There was one in particular where Francis was talking to his sister, and the dialogue went on like this for at least one page: "[Insert sentence]", [insert synonym for 'said'] [insert name].• The characters felt a little one-dimensional.• Some parts were unnecessarily le [...]


    25. I've loved Anne Boleyn since I was a girl, and I love to read novels when she survives and has a different end. The book is brilliant--every twist is explained and every emotion is described. There is a balance between lyrical and hard components in the author's writing style. I enjoyed this book.


    26. Vivid, well researched and entertainingA wonderful imagining of what Anne's life could have been had she escaped execution. My only criticism is there is a lot more telling than showing.
