Summary è eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Conn Iggulden

The brilliant retelling of the Wars of the Roses continues with Trinity the second gripping novel in the new series from historical fiction master Conn Iggulden1454 King Henry VI has remained all but exiled in Windsor Castle struck down by his illness for over a year his eyes vacant his mind a blankHis fiercely loyal wife and ueen Mar 35 rounded up to 4 starsHave to say I nearly didnt read this only did so as forgot to cancel the Library hold on it glad i did in the end as have to say enjoyed it far than the first in the series War of the RosesWhy Well it sticks with the theme as advertised gets to the nub of the conflict by introducing the minor earls or should that be the major conspirators as we find it s those pesky Earls schemingjockeying for power that force the larger pieces to come to the board take the game to the whole country I found myself wanting to know about the history which is always a good thing have to say Mr Iggulden keeps mostly on track with jus a few minor changes in the story which he does explain in the historical notes at the backMost of us take the main players to be the Duke of York ueen Margaret but it was the likes of Lord percy the Neville family s rivalry that brought about conflict eventually leading to the Battle of St Albans which is excellantly told by swapping from side 2 side throughout as the battle reaches its climax Other battles are covered the timeframe being 1454 1461 ending with the battle of Wakefield but only in varying degrees although I would have liked of the battles to have been featured perhaps its best this way as come the end of the Conueror series thats all there was no story no plot jus endless battle upon battleTo anyone who found the first in the series too choppy bitty this is defo a smoother ride as I said earlier sticks to the heart of the conflict draws us further into the War of the Roses through historical characters events A series I will be sticking with


About the Author: Conn Iggulden

CF IgguldenI was born in the normal way in 1971 and vaguely remember half pennies and sixpences I have written for as long as I can remember poetry short stories and novels It’s what I always wanted to do and read English at London University with writing in mind I taught English for seven years and was Head of English at St Gregory’s RC High School in London by the end of that period I have enormous respect for those who still labour at the chalk face In truth I can’t find it in me to miss the grind of paperwork and initiatives I do miss the camaraderie of the smokers’ room as well as the lessons where their faces lit up as they understood what I was wittering on aboutMy mother is Irish and from an early age she told me history as an exciting series of stories – with dates My great grandfather was a Seannachie so I suppose story telling is in the genes somewhere My father flew in Bomber Command in WWII then taught maths and science Perhaps crucially he also loved poetry and cracking good tales Though it seems a dated idea now I began teaching when boys were told only girls were good at English despite the great names that must spring to mind after that statement My father loved working with wood and euations but he also recited ‘Vitai Lampada’ with a gleam in his eye and that matters franklyI’ve always loved historical fiction as a genre and cut my teeth on Hornblower and Tai Pan Flashman Sharpe and Jack Aubrey I still remember the sheer joy of reading my first Patrick O’Brian book and discovering there were nineteen in the series I love just about anything by David Gemmell or Peter F Hamilton or Wilbur Smith I suppose the one thing that links all those is the love of a good taleThat’s about it for the moment If you’d like to get in touch with me leave a comment in the forum or you can tweet me ConnIggulden I’ll leave it there for the moment If you’ve read my books you know an awful lot about the way I think already There’s no point overdoing itConn Iggulden
