Goldstone, Nancy Bazelon.
Have you been missing your Game of Thrones fix? If so, this history of four powerful sisters who each earned themselves thrones is sure to remind you of the feuding families of Westeros and their schemes for the Iron Throne. This is a family saga with twists and turns to spare, including civil wars, disasters on Crusade and ill-fated banquets. Along the way, this book does an excellent job of explaining how medieval women accrued power using non-traditional methods, even when they were supposed to be merely consorts to kings.
