The water goddess thing... again? It sounded interesting until then.
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"

Isn't The White Princess going to be the title of her novel about Elizabeth of York?
I am going to take a wild guess here but I think that two of the topics covered in this book will be the fairy princess/demon Melusine and Incest!

I would say that's a given.

Oh dear- it might be an enjoyable read. But I never want to hear about the water princess in PG novels again

I don't know if I can stand to watch a series about that despicable miser and his dragon mother. (although I do pity Margaret Beaufort for having to bear a child at 13)

Wouldn't A Kings Ransom make for a better series. I can so see Michael Fassbender as Richard the Lionheart. With Tom Hardy as Morgan....

It would be easy to cast Elizabeth. All she has to do is parrot her husband and think "I'm a York Princess".
