About this deal

It's a "light" type of plotting that doesn't care much for accuracy nor invests much in characterisation. Wars of the Roses: the brand new historical series from Conn Iggulden – internationally best-selling author of the Emperor and Conqueror series. What is to follow is an very intriguing and marvellous tale of Kingship, power, loyalty, treachery and death, and in this circumstances King Henry VI must somehow seem to survive, and although supported by his very strong wife Queen Margaret, this King due to his ill health, he will feel the strain and hardships of being a King, resulting in his downfall. In September 2009, he published the children's book Tollins: Explosive Tales for Children, through HarperCollins.

it got a little disjointed as no sooner you were warming to a thread/characters then it jumped elsewhere, partly related to the ongoing plot but in others (MOSTLY) I thought.The surrendering or French soil is seen through the eyes of an English archer who has settled with his family. I don’t know that this will replace my favorite book by Conn Iggulden, because Wolf of the Plains is a truly special story. He is married to Ella, who is from the Amalfi Coast in southern Italy, and whose family are craft pasta and ravioli producers in the region.

Will this marriage save the King and his Kingdom, or will it be too late, because storm clous are gathering and soon the vultures are attacking the King and Queen from abroad and at home. There were quite a few scenes where the amount of gruesome details made me cringe, but I wanted to read more. This first instalment of his 15th Century England War Of The Roses' themed series has the feel of Iggulden on top form. Gritty and realistic, the words touch upon all senses so as to paint a very real picture of what 1400 England was like. And although for the most part you're not particularly fond of him, you do find yourself growing strangely endeared to him so that by the time his character leaves the story, you actually sympathise with him rather than rub your hands with glee.The book is readable and very easy to get into because of the fluid pace and style, but lacks substance. in the very next chapter the preconceptions he has let you build, he tears down, and you mentally shift allegiance over and over again, until your head is spinning, and you realise the sheer complexity and scale of the conflict.
