The master of historical fiction, Conn Iggulden, retells the gripping story of the English civil war in his new Wars of the Roses series King Henry V - the great Lion of England - is long dead. In 1437 the pious and gentle Henry VI, the Lamb, comes of age and accedes to the throne but his poor health and frailty of mind render him a weakling king. With England's territories in France under threat, and rumours of revolt at home, fears grow that Henry and his advisers will see the country slide into ruin. As storm clouds gather over England, King Henry and his supporters find themselves besieged abroad and at home. Who, or what, can save the kingdom before it is too late? The Wars of the Roses series will be a benchmark for historical fiction, showcasing Conn Iggulden at his finest. Praise for the author: 'This is energetic, competent stuff; Iggulden knows his material and his audience' INDEPENDENT
