Have you read The Queen of England: Coronation? If you have, here are some further questions to direct conversation and other topics you might find interesting.
- What would your version of alternate history involve? What period in time would you like to see redone?
- How would the book have changed if it were written in a modern timeline?
- This novel approaches both steampunk and the gaslamp fantasy genres, which elements succeeded? Which failed?
- What sort of mythology do you see for Excalibur? Do you think the sword exists somewhere in the world?
- What would you do if you were suddenly made monarch of a country? Would you add any traditions of your own?
- What do you think of Queen Juliette’s proclamation to make a ‘grand tour?’ Do you have any expectations for the next book in the series?
- What was more important, the characters or the plot? Was the plot moved forward by decisions of the characters, or were the characters at the mercy of the plot?
- Queen Juliette’s world is full of supporting characters, did you have a favorite? Why?
- If you were given a unicorn, what would you name it?
- In a world like Queen Juliette’s, is there room for both love and duty?
