There was a book stall set up in the shopping centre near where I live today. There were some Philippa Gregory books selling for five dollars. But I'd already read them so I didn't bother. If it was 'the White Queen' I think I may have bought it.
I would like Philippa Gregory to write about Isabella of France- I have mentioned this before but there is a lot to write about.
I did hope that Sharon Penman would produce a novel about Queen Isabella, but then I read on her blog that she considers the story of Isabella, Edward the Second and Mortimer to be too depressing.

I'm trying to get this from the library soon. I still curios about this series.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
