The Falcon’s Rise by Natalia Richards

Posted By on September 2, 2019

Congratulations to my fellow MadeGlobal author Natalia Richards on the release of a revised version of her Anne Boleyn novel The Falcon’s Rise.

What I love about The Falcon’s Rise is that it focuses on Anne Boleyn’s early life – her time at Hever Castle and her move to Mechelen, rather than being about Anne’s relationship with King Henry VIII and her downfall. A refreshing read! It’s also the first of a two-part series, and I’ve had a sneaky look at the second book and it’s just as good!

Here is the blurb for The Falcon’s Rise:

The day before her execution, Anne Boleyn’s mind wanders back to the journey that changed her life…

Born into the Boleyn family in rural Norfolk, obscurity looms, but when Anne’s father, Thomas, moves the family to Hever Castle, in Kent, to further his own interests, the family’s fortunes take a turn for the better. Thomas secures a place for Anne’s sister, Mary, at the prestigious court of Margaret of Austria, but fate has other plans, and Anne ends up taking her place.

At thirteen, Anne yearns for adventure. However, unused to curbing her outspoken tongue and youthful curiosity, she discovers that life at Margaret’s court is not quite how she’d imagined. Experiencing love, loss, jealousy and fear, she soon realises that her future happiness lies in her own hands – and that she must shape her own destiny…

The Falcon’s Rise is the first part of a two-part series, beginning the journey with the young Anne Boleyn growing into the woman who captured the heart of a king.

Click here to find the book on your country’s Amazon store. It’s available as a kindle ebook or paperback.

Natalia did a guest article for us here at the Anne Boleyn Files a couple of years ago about her research for her novels – click here to read it now.
