May 2016 Book of the Month.
A stunning conclusion to ‘The Wars of the Roses’ series, ‘Ravenspur’ launches Henry Tudor, while around him Kings battle for survival. This series is absolutely fascinating and even more compelling knowing it is based on some of the most bloody and twisted history of our land. Conn Iggulden captures the nuances of political manoeuvring beautifully, and truly breathes life into the men and women of this time. These are not shallow caricatures from history, but distinct, observable people, I felt their intense passion and conviction, I saw them at their best, worst, and everything in-between. As I read, I occasionally found myself returning to the family trees at the beginning, and found them essential in order to understand just how tangled and contorted a battle for supremacy this really was. This series has, quite simply, been breathtakingly glorious from beginning to end.
The fourth and final novel in Conn Iggulden's epic War of the Roses series. The season of vengeance has begun.
