The Secret History of Elizabeth Tudor Vampire Slayer by Lucy Weston

Elizabeth Tudor finally survives both her father and her sister’s threats to become Queen of England only to discover her throne is threatened by none other than Mordred, long thought dead. Mordred is the King of the vampires and he wants Elizabeth as his queen.
Ms. Weston paints a very clear picture of the politics of 1559 England. Even having a reasonable grasp of history it is still easy to assume monarchs in that time were absolute. This book reminds you that truly the head that wears the crown does not rest easy. The actual politics of Elizabeth’s court are superseded by the threat of Mordred and his vampires.

The recent obsession with vampires dilutes the impact this book could have. Ms. Weston did a nice job showing the romantic ambivalence and the real fear that Elizabeth Tudor had all her life.
