Product description

Destined for greatness – tormented by demons. VIII (Eight) is the untold story of Henry VIII, a gripping examination of why he turned from a charismatic teenager to the cruel tyrant he became in later life. Hal is a young, handsome and gifted warrior, who believes he has been divinely chosen to lead his people. But throughout his life, he is haunted by a ghostly apparition, and, once he rises to power, he turns to murder and rapacious cruelty.

    Couldn't put it down!

    This book speculates on the life of one of the world's most famous kings as a boy. It shows us how it was possible for Henry VIII to become so tyrannical and we sympathise with him. I thought the plot was excellent and I couldn't put it down!
