Publisher's Summary

It is 1454, and for over a year King Henry VI has remained all but exiled in Windsor Castle, struck down by his illness, his eyes vacant, his mind a blank. His fiercely loyal wife and queen, Margaret of Anjou, safeguards her husband's interests, hoping that her son, Edward, will one day come to know his father. With each month that Henry is all but absent as king, Richard, the duke of York, protector of the realm, extends his influence throughout the kingdom.

The Trinity - Richard and the earls of Salisbury and Warwick - are a formidable trio, and together they seek to break the support of those who would raise their colors and their armies in the name of Henry and his queen. But when the king unexpectedly recovers his senses and returns to London to reclaim his throne, the balance of power is once again plunged into turmoil. The clash of the Houses of Lancaster and York may be the beginning of a war that can tear England apart....

    Story
    "Richard III Wasn't a Cripple"

    A blatant fallacy was being perpetuated in this novel. When Richards body was discovered he did indeed have scoliosis but to claim the boy was a deformed cripple from birth is lunacy. He was a noted fighter a would have had to fight on horseback and in plate armor. Historical Fiction needs to get the big facts right.

    "Conn Iggulden is marvel!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the second in the War of the Roses series, which is even better than the first book. As with all of Iggulden's books, they just get better and better!

    "loved it!"

    narrator and story are both superb! looked forward to my long commutes every day with it! My loyalties have always been with York, but I found myself wavering back and forth! such a rich tapestry of history woven with personal stories.

    "Impressive"

    This is truly one of the best stories I've ever read, such details and an amazing narrator. Can't wait to start the next book of this series.
