Description

The Earls of Salisbury and Warwick make up a formidable trinity with Richard, and together they seek to break the support of those who would raise their colours in the name of Henry and his Queen. Families like the Nevilles, the Percys, and the houses of York, Lancaster, and Tudor would gain fame and infamy during this time. I still remember the sheer joy of reading my first Patrick O’Brian book and discovering there were nineteen more in the series.

In Warwick, especially, we get well developed motives, alongside a sense of morality (if slightly twisted and self-serving) that leaves him pondering his own actions and choices. The Duke of Suffolk is the scape goat for the loss of Normandy and is presented as one who has no greater ambitions and is just trying to do his duty to his King and Country. Just substitute the names and make it some fantasy kingdom and not England/France and fantasy readers would gobble it up. During his journey to France, he is waylaid by a pirate ship, commissioned by Richard, who kill William.Synopsis: In 1437, after years of regency, the pious and gentle Henry VI, the Lamb, comes of age and accedes to the English throne. I also tried to look 'Wars of the Roses' up on Wiki, but it's already a struggle just trying to understand who is who, and who is fighting who, which family is involved. When he wakes from his first bout of illness, he dismisses Richard Duke of York from being Lord Protector and reverses everything that Richard did. That said this first book in a series ( yes I managed to start at the beginning) was extremely interesting and galloped along.

It's a hopeless cause, of course, and it was interesting to see that little known part of the pre-Wars of the Roses period in a novel. It will appeal to those who enjoy action-packed, high-octane novels with lots of battles and information on strategy. Blue hardback(gilt lettering to the spine,two small nicks on the edges of the cover and spine) in fine condition, with with Dj(two creases and small nicks on the edges of the Dj cover) in near fine condition.In the meantime young King Henry VI marries Princess Margaret of Anjou in an attempt to forge an alliance with France. While this is a historical fiction series Conn does an amazing job sticking to the facts while filling in holes. This truly is an epic book in whats shaping up to be an epic series showing why Conn Iggulden holds the title as “one of the most successful authors of historical fiction writing today”.

In September 2009, he published the children's book Tollins: Explosive Tales for Children, through HarperCollins.

Mainly focusing on periods in history, he brings a level of detail to certain periods that give the eras a firm sense of grounding. As nothing else this drives Edward to proclaim himself king, aided by his friend and mentor Warwick both of whom want nothing more than to defeat the killers of their fathers and retrieve their honour and heads. Derry Brewer is a unique and complex character who works in the shadow to make sure that his king and his country are well protected. Dejémenos de Juego de tronos y leamos sobre la Guerra de las dos Rosas, la verdadera Historia es la más interesante. This is due to him being able to get deep into the mindsets, providing them with a sense of grounding quite unlike any other, making sure that they stay in the reader’s mind long after they’ve put the book down.
