My Lady Jane

By Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, & Jodi Meadows

        Review by: Betsy

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, & Jodi Meadows is a very funny book set in a parallel universe that resembles the time period following the death of King Henry VIII, with one key difference: much of the populace has the ability to shape-shift.  The saga begins with the young King Edward learning from his weaselly advisor that he is dying, so he quickly signs a proclamation declaring his cousin Jane queen in the event of his untimely demise, then marries her off to the son of his advisor.  Unsure how to break the news, everyone involved accidentally-on-purpose neglects to reveal that her new husband is involuntarily a horse from dawn to dusk.  The newlyweds quickly establish some ground rules: "There will be no riding of the horse" (or bridling, or harnessing) decrees Jane's new husband.  When Jane wonders aloud what, then, is the point of owning a horse, marital bliss does not ensue.
