The Curse of Anne Boleyn by C.C. Humphreys

From the masterful C.C. Humphreys comes the captivating sequel to The French Executioner

Nearly twenty years have passed since Anne Boleyn died at the hands of her slayer and savior, Jean Rombaud. All he wants is to forget his sword-wielding days and live happily with his family. Yet her distinctive six-fingered hand, stolen at her death―and all the dark power it represents―still compels evil men to seek it out. When Jean's son, Gianni, joins the Inquisition in Rome and betrays all his father worked for, Jean discovers that time alone cannot take him―or his son―far from his past. But he never expected his whole family, especially his beloved daughter Anne, to become caught up once more in the tragic queen's terrible legacy.

From the savagery of way in Italy to the streets of London and Paris and the wilds of North America, The Curse of Anne Boleyn sweeps readers into a thrilling story that puts love, loyalty, and family to the ultimate test.

Review by Mirella Patzer

The Curse of Anne Boleyn continues the story that began with the novel, The Executioner. Jean Rombaud is obliged to honor the promise he made to Anne before he took her head to hide and protect her six fingered hand. This sequel is very much an adventure story, filled with suspense, intrigue, and evil villains. Well imagined, with plenty of exciting plot twists, C.C. Humphreys takes readers on a jaunt from England, to France, to Italy, and even the new world across the vast ocean. A great intricate plot brings to life the 16th century. Memorable characters and vivid descriptions make this a memorable read. I strongly recommend you read the first book before this sequel. If you've never read a novel by C.C. Humphreys then this is a good duology to begin with. Definitely recommended.
