I loved Queen of This Realm and Victoria Victorious the most.
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"

I was 11 when I first started reading her novels. Started with The Sixth Wife, and read most of the others until I was about 22. I wouldn't re-read the Plantagenet novels because I prefer Sharon Penman and Elizabeth Chadwick now

Ahh where to start?! :D There have been very few of Plaidy's novels that I haven't liked, but I have to say my ultimate favourite would be Daughter of Satan, one of her stand alone novels about a girl suspected of witchcraft in Elizabethan England by the coast. Swiftly followed however by Murder Most Royal, I really liked the way she depicted Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard. The novels of hers that I haven't liked have been from her Queens of England series, I've found them a bit wooden.
