The nominal king, Edward VI, is 11 years old. His uncle Edward Seymour, Lord Hertford, rules as Protector. The extirpation of the old religion by radical Protestants is stirring discontent among the populace while the Protector’s prolonged war with Scotland is proving a disastrous failure and threatens to involve France. Worst of all, the economy is in collapse, inflation rages and rebellion is stirring among the peasantry.

Loved it as I have all other books in this series. Fiction based on historical fact I can think of a better way of learning some history, and get a feeling of what life was like in the 1500's, and at no point did I feel I was being lecture at or being taught some history, just listening to a very good highly believable story.
Steve Crossley's narration as always is excellent and can't imagine this being read by any other reader.

Bram Stoker's masterpiece is at the same time intensely romantic and very modern. It unfolds the story of a Transylvanian Don Juan, the aristocratic Count Dracula who preys on desirous damsels.

I love horror stories and in particular Vampire tales. Dracula is the original and quite simply best vampire tale ever.
Greg Wise and Saskia Reeves do Dracula full justice in their reading. Their English accents work well in the Novel, as does Greg doing all the Male parts with Saskia the female. For me this is best rendition of one of my favourite Novels.
