Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel, A Review

When Anne Boleyn becomes a target of demise, Thomas Cromwell uses the opportunity for revenge that has been long in the waiting. This whole sequel felt like a spider web being spun, tighter and tighter, closing in on the Boleyn’s. As a reader who does not already know Thomas Cromwell’s whole story, I’m wondering if this web is closing in on him, as well? I feel like he is surrounded by shadows and is on the cusp of complete darkness.

This is an incredible tale and it is made more incredible by the way Mantel relates this story. There are parts that literally made me shiver and feel chills, particularly towards the end. And, I am not a person that takes fright easily so I know its these words that have been placed together so thoughtfully and wryly that I am left shaking!

I highly recommend this series for fans of historical fiction!! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!
