Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Wars of the Roses: Bloodline, the third instalment in Conn Iggulden's thrilling Wars of the Roses trilogy.

Winter 1461 - Richard Duke of York is dead, his ambitions in ruins, his head spiked on the walls of York city. King Henry VI is still held prisoner. His Lancastrian queen rides south with an army of northerners, accompanied by warriors from the Scottish Highlands. Margaret and her army seem unstoppable. But his death has unleashed York's sons.

Edward of March, now Duke of York, proclaims himself England's rightful king. Through blood and treason, broken men and vengeful women, brother shall confront brother, king shall face king. Two men may claim a crown. Only one can keep it.

    Story
    "Unaccurate, but a Great listen!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Exactly, yes and no. You get the jist of the story, but as the author tells you himself at the end, he leaves other important historical figures out and is not accurate with timings etc., and he says it is so he can keep on moving the story line ahead, but with a bit of creativity, which he is not lacking apparently, he could have made the whole series as accurate as the facts are.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Hopefully an accurate telling of the complete story, beginning to end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    King Edward IV becoming the King, I could even see the man taking on the role of King... how people must have loved him.


    Could you see Wars of the Roses: Bloodline being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    YES!!!

    "Reliably brilliant"

    Conn Iggulden can be depended upon to craft an excellent historical drama and has done so again here. I have only held back from five stars for the story as I suspect he has even greater heights to scale and I want to save a little something for the moment...
    What is always less certain with an audio book is the quality of the narration. Speaking as the owner of an almost shamefully large audiobook library, I can say that there are few who can bring such stories to life as Roy McMillan. He manages this without panto dramatics or over-stretched character portrayals, just a thorough understanding of tempo, pitch and plot. Brilliant.

    "Living history"

    The second episode of the trilogy is as thrilling as the first. It is fascinating to see the complexity of history spun in such an engaging way. The characters are a synthesis of the real and the imagined. They are vivid and believable.
    The thrill of the battle scene is awesome and horrific.
    Historical fiction at its best.

    "Fantastic"

    Great story and wonderfully read by Roy McMillan who brings the story and characters to life, he draws you in so you forget you're being read to and feel as though you are in the story itself much like watching a great film, which is such an important quality in a good narrator. Fantastic author and amazing narrator, highly recommend both.

    Thoroughly enjoyable continuation of this fictional history. All that I said about the first two books still applies here. Keep at it Conn.

    Iggulden is a great story teller. His coverage of this topic is clear and exciting and the addition of historic notes at the end are so interesting.
