Publisher's Summary

The latest book in the Struggle for a Crown series by best-selling author Griff Hosker!  

King Richard is barely buried when the men who opposed him plot and plan to remove the new King, Henry Bolingbroke! With enemies in the north and the west, the new king and his son, Henry of Monmouth, find themselves besieged on all sides not knowing whom they can trust. William Strongstaff, now a lord, is the only one they can truly rely upon, and any thoughts of hanging up his sword are forgotten as King Henry sends the former royal bodyguard to help his son and quash a Welsh rebellion. 

Based on the events leading up to the battle of Shrewsbury, the story is fast moving, with larger than life characters like Harry Hotspur and Owain Glendower!

Adequate

I like this book not much in the way of historical value but, only 1 in 10 thousand historical fiction books ever do. Overall it was mildly entertaining and a enjoyable listen.

Impressive story telling

My first experience of Griff Hosker’s work and a very pleasing story up to and including the Battle of Shrewsbury. Descriptions of battle tactics, weapons, and armour added to the enjoyment. An impressive introduction to Hosker’s story telling. The narrator, Marston York, did well except for his excruciating accents for Royals, Court Officials, and the Michael Cane “cockney”. They were a struggle. You are warned.
